What is Evening Primrose Oil?
Evening primrose oil (EPO) is made from the seeds of a plant native to North America. Its health benefits are believed to be due to the gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) found in the plant’s oils. GLA is an omega-6 fatty acid found in plant oils.
Traditionally, the plant from which EPO is made was used to treat minor ailments such as bruises, sore throats and digestive problems. The GLA found in EPO, however, can provide a broad range of other benefits for users. By reducing skin inflammation, EPO is thought to help clear up acne, and help the skin retain moisture. In addition, studies show that the supplement may help ease eczema, and improve overall skin health.
