Nature is always stepping in heroically to provide us with substances we can’t make ourselves. In the case of the yellow evening primrose wildflower (Oenothera biennis), it’s essential fatty acids linoleic acid and gamma linoleic acid. Holland & Barrett Natural Evening Primrose Oil 1300mg is extracted from the wildflower’s seeds through cold pressing and then enriched with vitamin E and vitamin B6, which contributes to normal energy yielding metabolism and can contribute to a reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
Linoleic acid (LA) and gamma linoleic acid (GLA) are omega-6 essential fatty acids that can’t be produced by the body itself. This means we have to supplement it or get it through the food that we eat. LA food sources include safflower, hemp and sunflower oils, which the body metabolises into GLA. The richest natural source of GLA is human breast milk – which is not all that useful for us adults!
The body uses GLA to produce prostaglandins, which are hormone-like structures.
Linoleic acid can help the body metabolise cholesterol, which makes it easier to maintain normal levels of blood cholesterol.
1300mg of cold-pressed, high-quality evening primrose oil can be found in each of these Holland and Barrett Natural Evening Primrose Oil capsules. Take one twice a day (preferably with meals). Why not give them a try today and see if this natural food supplement can support your health.
