Info: 60 Softgels
This product provides 1,300 mg of pure primrose oil (also known as Evening Primrose Oil or EPO, because the flowers of the source plant often bloom at night) standardized to contain 120 mg of its main active ingredient, GLA (Gamma linolenic acid, an essential Omega-6 fatty acid). People have traditionally used EPO for healing wounds, gastrointestinal troubles, and sore throats, and more recent uses include to support the immune system; to relieve non-cyclical breast pain, premenstrual headaches and cramps; and to benefit the skin (particularly for atopic dermatitis), nails and hair.
