It’s amazing where some essential fatty acids pop up in nature and even more amazing how we can extract them and use them to improve our own health. Take the yellow evening primrose wildflower (Oenothera biennis) for example. Holland & Barrett Natural Evening Primrose Oil 1000mg has been extracted from the seeds of the wildflower using the cold-press method and enriched with vitamin B6, which contributes to normal energy yielding metabolism and can contribute to a reduction of tiredness and fatigue, and vitamin E.

This combination provides linoleic acid (LA) and gamma linoleic acid (GLA), both omega-6 essential fatty acids that the body can’t produce by itself and must be supplied through diet or supplements. The body actually metabolises GLA from LA, which can also be found in safflower, hemp and sunflower oils. It is also found in human breast milk.

GLA is used by the body to make hormone-like substances called prostaglandins.

Cholesterol metabolism has also been linked to linoleic acid – it contributes to maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels.

These evening primrose oil capsules contain 1000mg of high-quality, cold-pressed evening primrose oil with added vitamin B6 and vitamin E. They should be taken three times daily – preferably with meals - to extract their natural goodness. Give them a go today and see if evening primrose oil can help with your health.

  • Contains Linoleic Acid and Gamma Linoleic Acid
