E.P.O. evening primrose oil 250 softgels

Cold-pressed evening primrose seed for skin health and musculoskeletal comfort; contains 9% GLA.

Evening primrose oil (E.P.O) is cold-pressed and produced without the use of any solvents. Used for centuries as nutritional support for a wide range of physiological functions, several studies have indicated that EPO may help support the look and feel of healthy skin. A clinical trial reported that EPO supported healthy skin through a modulation of IFN-gamma. Another study revealed that EPO promoted skin health and led to a more favorable shift in eicosanoid metabolism. Other studies suggest that EPO may support healthy lipid metabolism and may provide oxidative protection by promoting glutathione reductase and transferase activities. A clinical trial reported that GLA in combination with EPA/DHA significantly promoted healthy cardiovascular function in women. Additionally, EPO may potentially be supportive of premenstrual comfort.

Joint Health: In the body, GLA is metabolized to dihomogammalinolenic acid (DGLA). Several studies suggest that DGLA promotes healthy prostaglandin E1 (PGE1) production and supports healthy cytokine activity, a mechanism that may help to support joint comfort.
Skin Health: Several studies have indicated that EPO may help support the look and feel of healthy skin. A clinical trial reported that EPO supported healthy skin through a modulation of IFN-gamma. Another study revealed that EPO promoted skin health and led to a more favorable shift in eicosanoid metabolism.
Cardiovascular Health: Animal studies suggest that EPO may support healthy lipid metabolism and may provide oxidative protection by promoting glutathione reductase and transferase activities. A clinical trial reported that GLA in combination with EPA/DHA significantly promoted healthy cardiovascular function in women.
Menstrual Comfort: EPO supports GLA levels, which may potentially be supportive of premenstrual comfort.
