GENERAL INFORMATION
Evening Primrose Oil is derived from tiny seeds of the wildflower, Oenothera biennis L., which is native to North America. It contains a gentle,natural source of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA),an omega-6 fatty acid. The body converts GLA into hormone-like compounds known as the prostaglandins (PGs), which are essential to the maintenance and regulation of many physiological functions in the body. The body can produce both pro-inflammatory and antiinflammatory PGs. The GLA found in evening primrose oil is beneficial for treating a variety of conditions, because of its ability to increase the production of the anti-inflammatory PGs.
GLA is normally synthesized in the liver from dietary sources of linoleic acid (LA), an essential fatty acid. However, the process of converting dietary LA into GLA in the body is a slow process. Supplementation with evening primrose oil is beneficial because 7-10% of its fatty acids are in the form of GLA. As a result, evening primrose oil directly provides a concentrated source of this important omega-6 fatty acid.The GLA found in evening primrose oil is widely recognized as an effective antiinflammatory agent, and is beneficial for treating joint pain and swelling caused by arthritis and other autoimmune disorders. This omega-6 fatty acid can also assist in normalizing hormone levels and may help address symptoms of PMS such as bloating, breast tenderness, abdominal cramps, irritability and mood swings. In addition, GLA promotes the healthy growth and maintenance of skin, hair and nails.
By reducing the production of inflammatory compounds, evening primrose oil can decrease the itching associated with atopic eczema, potentially eliminating the need for topical steroid creams or drugs, which have a variety of negative side effects. Studies have also shown evening primrose oil to be beneficial in the prevention of neuropathy (nerve damage), a common complication that can occur in individuals with diabetes.
Vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant, is added to this formulation. This is important because the fatty acids in evening primrose oil can break down quickly, and vitamin E helps to slow this process.
Jamieson Evening Primrose Oil is formulated from natural sources and is pharmaceutically tested to guarantee full potency and absolute clinical purity.
