Evening Primrose Oil 1000 mg.
People use Evening Primrose Oil for hormonal balancing and skin health.
For centuries, Evening Primrose Oil has been used to provide nutritional support for women due to its hormonal balancing properties. It has been traditionally used to help support the symptoms of PMS, menopause, and infertility. It has also been suggested that it plays a major role in promoting smooth, healthy-looking skin.**
Evening Primrose Oil is one of the most concentrated sources of Gamma Linolenic Acid. Many factors can affect the body’s ability to convert Linoleic Acid into GLA. These include aging, intake of certain nutrients such as zinc, B6, magnesium, biotin and calcium, stress, and cholesterol levels. Therefore supplementing with Evening Primrose Oil, a natural source of GLA, can be so important for overall women’s health.**
