Nature’s Way Evening Primrose For Skin, Acne and Eczema.


Evening Primrose Oil (EPO) is an Omega-6 fatty acid which is derived from the ‘essential’ linoleic acid, another Omega-6 fatty acid.  Just like the essential Omega-3’s, they provide numerous benefits to health.  Equally, they need to be eaten in the diet, or taken in supplement form, because the body cannot make them.  However, these powerful Omega-6 fatty acids are not found in high amounts in foods.


As we know EPO provides many health benefits but it is particularly effective when used in conditions of acne and other skin complaints, especially eczema.  It has a general anti-inflammatory effect because the GLA produces hormone-like compounds known as prostaglandins.  Where there is inflammation, this often manifests itself in the skin, hence acne, eczema or other skin conditions are more likely.  EPO works particularly well with vitamin E, encouraging great improvements in skin tone, moisture and condition.

It appears that many women who suffer the unpleasant symptoms of PMS, also tend to suffer more during the menopause; and some of the symptoms are the same.  Additionally, many women suffer from low moods during the menopause and GLA has also been found to be effective for depression.  It would seem that people suffering from depression often show low levels of GLA in the blood.  Other symptoms of the menopause also include painful breasts and skin ‘break-outs’.  Again, both of these conditions can be effectively treated using EPO.
