New Roots Herbal Evening Primrose Oil 500mg
New Roots Herbal's cold-pressed Evening Primrose Oil contains approximately 70% linoleic acid (LA) and 10% gamma-linolenic acid (GLA).
Linoleic acid is as essential fatty acid found in nuts, seeds, and many vegetable oils (including Evening Primrose Oil). There are unfortunately many factors which can interfere with this process, which include saturated fats; hydrogenated oils; blood-glucose problems; along with inadequate dietary intake of vitamin C, magnesium, zinc, and B vitamins. On the other hand, gamma-linoleic acid does not require this conversion, which makes it a desirable source for prostaglandin production by the body.
- Made with Organic Evening Primrose
- GLA is recognized as beneficial for women's health
