For centuries‚ Europeans and Native Americans have used evening primrose oil--which is derived from a yellow flowering plant--as traditional medicine. Now‚ you can get it in convenient capsule form. Every capsule of E.P.O. by Pure Encapsulations provides 500 milligrams of cold-pressed evening primrose seed oil.

Why is this important? Evening primrose oil is a good source of several essential fatty acids‚ most prominently gamma linolenic acid (GLA). GLA plays several essential roles in supporting well-being. For example‚ it may promote premenstrual comfort in pre-menopausal women‚ potentially relieving mild breast pain and other symptoms that distract from everyday life during that time of the month. Its potential ability to support cardiovascular functioning also seems to be particularly significant in the female body.

In addition‚ the human body converts GLA into dihomogammalinolenic acid (DGLA)‚ a substance that may support joint comfort in several ways. DGLA may support healthy cytokine activity and the sufficient production of E1 prostaglandins (PGE1)‚ which may lessen pain and stiffness by providing inflammation relief.

Furthermore‚ EPO may have a positive effect on your appearance. Gamma linolenic acid may work to modulate IFN-gamma and the metabolism of eicosanoids; as a result‚ evening primrose oil may improve skin health and promote clearer skin with less redness or irritation. Each softgel capsule of E.P.O. 500 mg contains a minimum of 45 milligrams (nine percent) of GLA.

Take one to four softgels daily‚ in divided doses. You can take this supplement either with or between meals. At the recommended dosage‚ each 250-capsule bottle of Pure Encapsulations' E.P.O. 500 mg should last from two to eight months.
