Blackmores Evening Primrose Oil is:

A rich natural source of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA).
Low levels of GLA have been found in women with PMS, and in adults and children with atopic eczema/dermatitis.

Features and benefits

  • High potency

  • Source of omega-6 essential fatty acids

    How it works

    Evening Primrose Oil (EPO) contains the essential fatty acids gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) and linoleic acid (LA) and influences prostaglandin activity leading to a reduction of cramping pain and other symptoms associated with premenstrual syndrome, including cyclic mastalgia. Lifestyle factors such as excess saturated fats in the diet, ongoing high stress levels, alcohol consumption, and smoking may all affect GLA metabolism, leading to the need for dietary supplementation.

    Dosage

    Adults - Take 1 to 3 capsules daily with main meal, or as professionally prescribed.

    Children (from 6 years to 12 years) - Take 1 to 2 capsules daily (prick and squeeze into milk or juice), or as professionally prescribed.

    Children (under 6 years) - Take 1 capsule a day (prick and squeeze into milk or juice), or as professionally prescribed.

    Cautions

    • Always read the label. Use only as directed.
    • If symptoms persist, see your healthcare professional.

    Side Effects
