Monograph

Evening primrose oil (EPO) contains essential fatty acids that have several beneficial effects in the body.* EPO is a source of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) which, when used topically, has been demonstrated to aid in the management of atopic dermatitis.* EPO also contains precursors of prostaglandin E1 which, when deficient, can contribute to many female hormone balancing concerns, including PMS symptoms such as depression, irritability, breast pain, and fluid retention.* Deficiency of prostaglandin E1 can also contribute to menopausal symptoms including hot flashes.* EPO also inhibits leukotriene synthesis, which is an inflammatory mediator and can therefore be used to reduce systemic inflammation in the body.*
