Many women choose to supplement with Evening Primrose Oil around the time of their period or during the menopause.
Evening primrose oil comes from the seed of the evening primrose plant. It’s used for skin disorders such as eczema, acne and many others ranging from rheumatoid arthritis, MS to Cancer. Women use our product during pregnancy for preventing high blood pressure, shortening labour, starting labour, and preventing late deliveries. Beneficial towards PMS.
Each capsule yields 500mg of Evening Primrose Oil – containing 10% GLA. Although the body can produce GLA directly from linoleic acid, sometimes the conversion is not very efficient, so a supplement may be of benefit.
This valuable oil is one of nature’s richest sources of the naturally occurring substance GLA, which is vital for maintaining good health.
Body By Natures Evening Primrose Oil provides omega-6 fatty acids.
These acids are precursors of hormone-like substances which support the maintenance of skin, heart and cardiovascular health.

The Benefits of Gamma-Linolenic Acid (GLA)
Gamma linolenic acid (GLA) is a fatty acid called Omega-6 which is made in the human body from linoleic acid. This is a vital acid found in vegetable oils and egg yolks. An example of a main supplemental source of GLA is borage or black currant plants. You will find it in human breast milk too. It performs a broad spectrum of functions, including assisting with skin health, oxygen metabolism and cell membrane integrity. A majority of GLA in the body is taken in as linoleic acid and then metabolised to GLA. Most people are able to successfully complete this process within their body but tests have suggested that diabetics and people with skin disorders are less likely to make enough GLA from linoleic acid, so consuming supplements such as Body By Natures evening primrose oil can be beneficial.
Fatty Acid Metabolism and Prostaglandins
The Linoleic acid is first metabolised to GLA and then to di-homo-gamma-linolenic acid (DHLA), a precursor of the series one prostaglandins, e.g. prostaglandin E1, (PGE1). DHLA is further metabolised to arachidonic acid, a precursor of the series two prostaglandins. Prostaglandins are extremely reactive, substances with a variety of actions - their main effect being on the cardiovascular system and the smooth muscle. This supplement is favoured by women around the time of their period or during the menopause. Fatty acids are essential for humans but not all can be made in the body, so they have to be supplied in our food.
