PRE-MENSTRUAL SYNDROME - Gamma linoleinc acid from Evening Primrose Oil has been shown to improve Pre-menstrual syndrome headaches, low mood, irritability and bloating.

HEAVY PERIODS - Fatty acid imbalance may play a significant role in heavy menstruation.

BREAST HEALTH - Scientific studies have shown that Omega 6 fatty acids in the form of Gamma linolenic acid from Evening Primrose Oil may be helpful in reducing the pain and tenderness associated with pre-menstrual breast pain.

HORMONE IMBALANCE - The hormone modulating effects of prostaglandins derived from essential fatty acids makes them particularly important if optimal hormonal health is to be achieved.

DIABETIC NEUROPATHY - Clinical research has discovered that Gamma linolenic acid may be an important factor in the prevention of nerve damage that affects between 60% and 70% of all diabetics. Diabetics should definitely consider supplementing with a good source of Gamma linolenic acid, such as Solgar Evening Primrose Oil.

SKIN HEALTH - Studies have shown skin conditions, including eczema and psoriosis, respond well to Evening Primrose Oil. In fact, researchers have discovered that eczema may be linked to a deficiency of Gamma linolenic acid. An initial dose of around 3000mg a day is recommended for eczema etc. This can be reduced when results are obtained.
