Vertese High Strength Evening Primrose Oil is extracted from seeds of the plant Oenothera biennis, also known as evening primrose. Whilst there are a large selection of Evening Primrose Oil supplements on the market, Vertese evening primrose oil supplement boasts a high level of the essential fatty acid Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA).
By using a superior quality source plant, a GLA content as high as 12% is found. Fatty acids are very important molecules that are used to carry messages around the body and also to provide a source of fuel. Although particularly known as a supplement chosen by women with PMS, Evening Primrose Oil can be beneficial in a number of other areas.
GLA is known to be involved in the production of a number of short-lived hormones called Prostaglandins. These messengers are used by the body to regulate many functions such as controlling inflammation, blood-flow to internal organs and brain function. Anti-inflammatory drugs such as Aspirin inhibit the synthesis of prostaglandins to reduce inflammation.
Each vegetarian High Strength Evening Primrose Oil capsule contains 1000mg of evening primrose oil, is gelatin free, and is suitable for vegans too.
Dosage: Take 1-3 Vertese Evening Primrose Oil capsules daily.
