What is evening primrose oil?
Evening primrose oil is the oil derived from the seeds of the evening primrose (Oenothera biennis) plant.Often abbreviated to EPO, evening primrose oil is a rich source of omega-6 essential fatty acids.2 In particular, it contains one known as gamma linolenic acid (GLA), which is also found in other plant-based oils.Evening primrose oil contains linoleic acid as well as GLA – both are essential components of myelin, the protective coating around nerve fibers, and the neuronal cell membrane.
Evening Primrose Oil has been called the most sensational preventive discovery since vitamin C. It contains the pain relieving compound phenylalanine and is increasingly being used to treat chronic headaches. It has so many preventive and therapeutic qualities that it has become a standard part of recommendations of many herbalist for maintaining youth and preventing disease.
Evening Primrose Oil contains a high concentration of a fatty acid called GLA and it is this fatty acid that is largely responsible for the remarkable healing properties of the plant. In fact, Evening Primrose contains one of the highest concentrations known of this important substance and only a few other plants contain it at all. This makes Evening Primrose an important medicinal herb, and as studies continue, the list of benefits will likely become much longer. The gamma-linoleic acid, linoleic acid and other nutrients in this oil are essential for cell structure and improve the elasticity of the skin.
What makes evening primrose oil special? Evening primrose seeds have very high levels of the essential fatty acid “gamma-linolenic acid” (GLA), also known as “omega-6”. The oil contains up to 15% gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) and 70% linolenic acid, which your body turns into GLA. The body eventually converts GLA into prostaglandins – hormones necessary for a number of important functions.
