Evening primrose oil is a natural and rich source of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), a type of omega-6 fatty acid. Gamma-linolenic acid is an essential fatty acid that is highly beneficial to one’s health. However, the body does not produce it on its own. It can be taken in and absorbed by the body by eating foods containing GLA or supplements.
Springleaf Evening Primrose Oil is made from extracts of evening primrose which is rich in GLA. This component is particularly effective at balancing hormone levels, especially among women. It helps in relieving pre-menstrual symptoms and hormonal acne, reducing hair loss, relieving symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis-like stiffness and pain and promoting overall well-being.
