Evening Primrose Oil is the oil that comes from the evening primrose plant. This is a wildflower that grows throughout North America. The oil that is extracted from the plant contains high amounts of the essential fatty acids Linoleic Acid (LA) and Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA). This type of fatty acid cannot be made by the body so has to come from dietary sources. LA and GLA can help to balance the hormones particularly in females. Because of this it is very popular in women who suffer from premenstrual syndrome (PMS), in particular symptoms such as mood swings, bloating and breast tenderness. People who suffer from PMS have been found to have low levels of GLA in their bodies. This supplement is actually licensed for helping with the treatment of breast pain, also known as mastalgia in several countries, such as the United Kingdom and is considered to be first line therapy for this condition in many European countries. Neulife Evening Primrose oil contains anti-inflammatory properties which can help with menstrual cramps. The anti-inflammatory properties in this oil can also help relieve symptoms such as joint pain and inflammation associated with rheumatoid arthritis. Having a hormone balancer action could mean Evening Primrose Oil could help with a variety of skin conditions such as acne, eczema and psoriasis. Eczema might develop due to the body having problems converting dietary intake of fatty acids into GLA, which this supplement could help with. Evening Primrose could help sufferers of acne by helping to dilute the sebum, a thick oil like substance that is over secreted in people who suffer from acne. It could also reduce the risk of the pores on the skin being clogged by this sebum, which is what causes a spot. Evening primrose could help both children and adults in the treatment of skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis, however it is recommended to consult a doctor before giving these capsules to a child.
