Healtheries Evening Primrose Oil 1000mg 180 Capsules
Style number: 12736
Healtheries Evening Primrose Oil is derived from the seed of the Evening Primrose Plant (Oenothera biennis), and contains 10 percent Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA). GLA is beneficial for the relief of symptoms due to premenstrual syndrome, dry skin conditions such as eczema, asthmatic conditions, and joint swelling.
GLA is essential for the production of prostaglandin E (*PGE1), a hormone like substance which controls a multitude of vital functions in the body which enhance the health of reproductive organs, skin and lung health, and joint function.
Factors in the typical diet and lifestyle such as saturated fats and trans fatty acids; as well as vitamin and mineral deficiencies; alcohol; aging; viral infections; and radiation can block the normal formation of GLA from Linoleic Acid, an omega 6 fatty acid found in a variety of foods, and adversely affect the enzyme Delta 6 Desaturase, which is responsible for the conversion of Linoleic Acid to GLA in the body.
- Has an anti-inflammatory action.
- Inhibits platelet aggregation (helps prevent blood clots forming in arteries).

- Is necessary for the normal functioning of the T cells of the immune system
