10% GLA Evening Primrose Oil,
Cold Pressed 10% GLA
Evening Primrose is a dicotyledonous plant of genus Oenothera . The seeds
have been used for edible oil and also known to be a medicine in Europe. Evening
Primrose oil has contains much γ-linolenic acid, which has well known to relieve
obesity, diabetes mellitus, hypercholesterolemia, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), and so
Recently, polyphenols in plant seeds have been paid attention. Polyphenols
prevent oxidation of lipids and scavenge active oxygen as a trigger of cause of various
diseases. ORYZA OIL & FAT CHEMICAL CO., LTD. has been studying for the
physiological function of polyphenols of the Evening Primrose seeds. We have
recently developed an EVENING PRIMROSE EXTRACT (EPE), in which
polyphenols are highly concentrated. The product contains more polyphenols than any
other products, showing a strong antioxidative activity. Further, we found that
EVENING PRIMROSE EXTRACT has an anti-diabetic activity.
Benefits of Evening Primrose Oil
1. It can help clear up acne
The GLA in EPO is thought to help acne by reducing skin inflammation and the number of skin cells that cause lesions. It may also help the skin retain moisture.
According to a 2014 studyTrusted Source, EPO may help relieve cheilitis. This condition causes inflammation and pain in the lips caused by the acne drug isotretinoin (Accutane).
A separate study found that GLA supplementation reduced both inflammatory and noninflammatory acne lesions.
2. It may help ease eczema
Some countries other than the United States have approved EPO to treat eczema, an inflammatory skin condition.
According to an older studyTrusted Source, the GLA in EPO may improve the skin’s epidermis. However, a 2013 systematic reviewTrusted Source concluded that oral EPO doesn’t improve eczema and isn’t an effective treatment.
3. It can help improve overall skin health
According to a 2005 studyTrusted Source, oral supplementation of EPO helps smooth skin and improve its:
Per the study, GLA is necessary for ideal skin structure and function. Because the skin can’t produce GLA on its own, researchers believe taking GLA-rich EPO helps keep skin healthy overall.
4. It may help relieve PMS symptoms
An older studyTrusted Source suggests EPO is highly effective in treating premenstrual syndrome (PMS) symptoms, such as:
Researchers believe some women experience PMS because they’re sensitive to normal prolactin levels in the body. GLA converts to a substance in the body (prostaglandin E1) thought to help prevent prolactin from triggering PMS.
According to a 2010 studyTrusted Source, a supplement containing vitamin B-6, vitamin E, and EPO was effective in relieving PMS. Even so, it’s unclear how much EPO played a role, since a 2009 systematic reviewTrusted Source didn’t find EPO helpful for PMS.
5. It can help minimize breast pain
If you experience breast pain so severe during your period that it interferes with your life, taking EPO may help.
According to a 2010 study, the GLA in EPO is thought to reduce inflammation and help inhibit prostaglandins that cause cyclical breast pain. The study found that taking daily doses of EPO or EPO and vitamin E for six months decreased the severity of cyclical breast pain.
6. It may help reduce hot flashes
EPO may reduce the severity of hot flashes, one of the most uncomfortable side effects of menopause.
According to a 2010 literature review, there’s not enough evidence that over-the-counter remedies such as EPO help hot flashes.
A later study, however, came to a different conclusion. The study found that women who took 500 mg daily of EPO for six weeks experienced less frequent, less severe, and shorter hot flashes.
Women also had improved marks for social activity, relations with others, and sexuality on a questionnaire on how hot flashes impact daily life.
7. It may help reduce high blood pressure
There’s conflicting evidence about whether EPO lowers blood pressure. More research is needed.
According to a 2013 studyTrusted Source, those taking EPO had a slightly higher systolic blood pressure. Researchers called the reduction “a clinically meaningful difference.”
A 2011 systemic reviewTrusted Source concluded there’s not enough evidence to determine if EPO helps reduce the risk of high blood pressure during pregnancy or preeclampsia, a condition that causes dangerously high blood pressure during and after pregnancy.
8. It may help improve heart health
Heart disease kills more than 600,000 peopleTrusted Source in the United States each year. Hundreds of thousands more are living with the condition. Some people are turning to natural remedies, such as EPO, to help.
According to a 2014 studyTrusted Source on rats, EPO is anti-inflammatory and helps reduce blood cholesterol. Most people with heart disease have inflammation in the body, although it hasn’t been proven that inflammation causes heart disease.
9. It can help reduce nerve pain
Peripheral neuropathy is a common side effect of diabetes and other conditions. Older researchTrusted Source has shown that taking linolenic acid helps reduce neuropathy symptoms, such as:
hot and cold sensitivity
10. It may help ease bone pain
Bone pain is often caused by rheumatoid arthritis, a chronic inflammatory disorder. According to a 2011 systematic reviewTrusted Source, the GLA in EPO has the potential to reduce rheumatoid arthritis pain without causing unwanted side effects.
GLA is an omega-6 fatty acid. It’s available in many vegetable-based oils, including evening primrose oil, borage seed oil, and black currant seed oil.
These oils are available in capsule form at most health food stores. But you may get enough GLA from your diet without taking supplements.
GLA is essential for maintaining brain function, skeletal health, reproductive health, and metabolism. It’s also essential for stimulating skin and hair growth.
It’s important to balance omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. ScientistsTrusted Source think that many people consume too much omega-6 and too little omega-3. Paying attention to that balance can help reduce your risk of many chronic diseases.
