Additional Information

It is essential type of fat that is vital for good health. Contains: No added sugar, starch, gluten, yeast, artificial colours, preservatives or dairy products  
 
For everyday health and longevity, there are about 50 essential elements that our bodies require. They are considered “essential” because our bodies cannot manufacture them; we must acquire them from the diet. In most healthy individuals, this conversion process (Omega 6 to GLA to PG1) happens automatically. However, about 20% of the population cannot convert omega 6 into GLA effectively, and therefore must supplement through diet. This makes GLA-rich Evening Primrose Oil a prized therapeutic lipid.

Benefits of Evening Primrose Oil: 
Evening Primrose Oil (EPO) is best known for its success in relieving Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS). It has also been nutritionally useful in the treatment of arthritis, high blood pressure and cholesterol. This is due to the rich gamma linolenic acid (GLA) content. It is also promoted for a wide variety of ailments including reduction of premenstrual and menopause syndrome symptoms, weight loss without dieting, hypertension, improved lipids, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and even for hangovers.

Caution: Always read the label. Use only as directed. If symptoms persist, see your healthcare professional. Vitamins can only be of assistance if the dietary vitamin intake is inadequate. Vitamin supplements should not replace a balanced diet.
