Ingredients – Primrose Oilé – Evening Primrose Oil Supplement

“Evening Primrose” or Oenothera Biennis is also know as Sundrops. The leaves and oil from the seed are used by herbalists to treat liver and kidney dysfunction. The oil has a high content of linoleic acid (GLA), an essential polyunsaturated fatty acid that is converted into (hormone like) prostaglandins and hormones. Used as a tonic for inflammatory conditions. It reputedly lowers cholesterol, and is said to relieve premenstrual tension, high blood pressure, and anxiety associated with inflammatory conditions. Evening Primrose has been recommended for infantile eczema, painful breasts, arthritis and neurosis.

-According to Ruth Winter, M.S. in her A Consumer’s Dictionary of Medicines, Crown Trade Paperbacks, NY 1993

A study of 111 patients from seven centers in the U.K. and Finland using Evening Primrose Oil (EPO) concluded that Gamma Linoleic Acid or GLA (an ingredient in EPO) had a beneficial effect on the course of diabetic neuropathy. The “administration of GLA to patients with mild diabetic polyneuropathy may prevent deterioration, and, in some cases, reverse the condition.”
