Contributes to the regulation of hormonal activity
Provides the fatty acids Linoleic Acid and Gamma Linoleic Acid
Rapid release softgel capsules
Cold Pressed Evening Primrose Oil provides the fatty acids Linoleic Acid (LA) and Gamma Linoleic Acid (GLA). Not all fatty acids can be made in the body so must be supplied through diet or supplementation.
Within the body Linoleic Acid is metabolised to GLA, which is essential for the production of certain hormone-like substances called prostaglandins. Human breast milk is one of the richest natural sources of GLA, whilst LA can be found in safflower, hemp and sunflower oils. Vitamin B6 contributes to the regulation of hormonal activity.
Each capsule contains:
Vitamin B6 0.25mg
Evening Primrose Oil (oenothera biennis, seed) 500mg
Cis-Linoleic Acid (LA) 365mg
Gamma Linoleic Acid (9% GLA) 45mg
Take three to six capsules daily, preferably with meals. Do not exceed stated dose.
