Omega-6 fatty acids such as GLA are essential for human health but the body cannot make them, so they must be consumed in food or via supplement as part of a healthy diet.
GLA is important for maintaining a joint’s cell structure and function. By consuming evening primrose oil you’ll help to increase the levels of the essential GLA in your body, which could be low for any number of dietary or health reasons.1†
For many North Americans, the conversion of linoleic acid to GLA is difficult because their bodies lack adequate levels of B6, B3, Magnesium and Zinc. Furthermore, the conversion is blocked in proportion to the amount of trans-fatty acids in one’s diet, which in North America can be significant.†
By providing a healthy source of GLA, trunature® Evening Primrose Oil helps circumvent these conversion problems and allows your body to take advantage of the many benefits of GLA.
Evening primrose oil is used to enhance women’s well-being and provides support for many symptoms of PMS such as bloating, irritability, mood swings and breast tenderness.2,3,4†
The fatty acids provided by evening primrose oil can play an important role in supporting optimum cell membrane structure and function. This benefit is particularly important in brain function as well as supporting normal growth and development.5,6†
GLA is converted by the body into a hormone-like substance called prostaglandin E1 (PGE1). This compound is helpful in supporting healthy blood flow. By helping the formation of PGE1, GLA also helps promote a healthy inflammatory response.†
Evening primrose oil also helps to support and maintain healthy skin. One clinical study, including over 1,200 patients, showed that evening primrose oil helped maintain healthy skin and provide support in combatting occasional itching.8,9†
In addition, evening primrose oil use has been associated with healthy nerve function.10,11,12,13†
