Evening Primrose Oil GLA 130
"I am a huge champion of healthy fats and encourage everyone to include more healthy fats in their diets. Evening primrose oil contains beneficial omega-6 fatty acids that are helpful for everything ranging from inflammatory conditions, premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and menopause to general skin issues. I suggest pairing this with fish oil to maintain a healthy omega-3/6 balance. As with most herbal ingredients, I suggest taking it for 3 consecutive months for best results." - Jiying

Primrose oil is derived from evening primrose, a yellow flowering herb native to the Americas. It is a source of omega-6 fatty acids, including gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) and linolenic acid (LA), that helps to maintain optimal skin health. LA accounts for approximately 12% of fatty acids in the skin, and helps maintain the integrity of the epidermal barrier. Omega-6 fatty acids promote epithelial cell function and support moisture levels in the skin and eyes. In a randomized, placebo-controlled trial, daily supplementation with evening primrose oil for three months promoted skin firmness and elasticity in adults. Recent research indicates that the skin benefits from evening primrose oil supplementation may take over four weeks to develop, as skin cells must regenerate.*
