  • Traditional Native American and European medicine has utilized evening primrose oil for hundreds of years. It comes from a yellow flowering plant‚ and Pure Encapsulations' E.P.O. is a convenient source of it. One capsule provides 500 milligrams of cold-pressed evening primrose seed oil.

    Evening primrose oil is a good source of several essential fatty acids‚ especially gamma linolenic acid (GLA)‚ which plays several essential roles in supporting overall health‚ especially in women. For example‚ it may promote premenstrual comfort‚ potentially relieving mild breast pain and other symptoms that distract from everyday life during that time of the month. EPO may also support cardiovascular health‚ most significantly in the female body.

    In addition‚ evening primrose oil may also help you look better by promoting skin health. Gamma linolenic acid might work to modulate IFN-gamma and the metabolism of eicosanoids‚ which can potentially allow you to reduce irritation and redness while helping you maintain clear skin. Each softgel capsule of E.P.O. 500 mg is guaranteed to contain a minimum of 45 milligrams of GLA‚ which is nine percent of the total contents.

    Finally‚ evening primrose oil may support joint health and comfort. As a result‚ you may be inspired to stay active‚ which has its own health benefits. The joint support comes due to the fact that the human body converts gamma linolenic acid into dihomogammalinolenic acid (DGLA)‚ a substance that may support joint comfort by promoting healthy cytokine activity and E1 prostaglandin (PGE1) production‚ which may lessen pain and stiffness by providing inflammation relief.

    Take one to four softgels daily‚ in divided doses. You can take this supplement either with or between meals. At the recommended dosage‚ each 100-capsule bottle of Pure Encapsulations' E.P.O. 500 mg should last for about one to three months.

    Pure Encapsulations seeks to formulate and manufacture high-quality‚ hypoallergenic dietary supplements. Quality control during the formulation and manufacturing process is paramount. All Pure Encapsulations products are made with the most bioavailable ingredients possible.

    Hot Flash relief

    I was having night sweats and hot flashes until my doctor recommended E.P.O. Since I have been on E.P.O. both symptoms have disappeared. I have used it for several months.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    High Quality EPO

    I was brought to this particular E.P.O. years ago by my naturopathic doctor. Ive always liked pure encapsulations E.P.O. because the E.P.O. is always fresh (not rancid) and the 500mg capsules makes it easier to vary my dosage by the day. I take it to increase and support my low progesterone levels taking 500mg/day the first 2 weeks of my cycle and then 1000mg the 3rd week and 2000mg the 4th week. Great stuff that really works effectively.

    Pros

      Nice dosage at 500mg Effective at balancing progesterone levels Fresh and high-quality

    Cons

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Good for your hair

    I read that Evening Primrose Oil promotes hair growth so I started taking it and Im seeing good results. My hair was thinning due to hypothyroid now it is starting to grow back and fill in.

    Pros

      Easy to take; does what it is supposed to do.

    Cons

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
