Evening primrose oil is one of the few natural sources of polyunsaturated fat called Gamma-Linolenic Acid (GLA). GLA is the precursor of a particularly important prostaglandin called PGE1, which takes part in regulating the nervous, cardiovascular and reproductive system, skin condition and other biological functions.

  • A small soft capsule.
  • 180 capsules.
  • Beneficial for women's menstrual and reproductive health.
  • Good for women going through the menopause.
  • Aids in keeping skin in good condition.
  • Regulates the nervous and cardiovascular system.
  • Contains recommended daily amount of Vitamin E.

The body not only uses polyunsaturates for the growth of cell membranes but it also converts them into prostaglandins. Prostaglandins are physiologically-active hormone-like substances which control and regulate many body processes. Before the body can make use of linoleic acid for prostaglandin formation, it has to convert it to GLA, and sometimes this conversion is slow or partially blocked. Hence, a dietary source of GLA can be very useful to the body in bypassing the conversion process. Prostaglandins however are not the only nutritional benefit to be derived from Evening Primrose Oil, its Fatty Acids provide for cell membrane growth as well.

Lamberts Evening Primrose is high quality oil specially selected for its purity and consistent GLA level, and each capsule also provides the RDA of Vitamin E. These capsules are smaller in size than our other GLA supplements and may therefore be preferred by some people.
