More about evening primrose oil

Evening primrose oil supports skin health and is used by people who suffer from acne. For women, it has been found to provide natural premenstrual support. Evening Primrose Oil is also used to support heart health, plus help maintain normal blood pressure and joint health. Our Evening Primrose Oil is tested to ensure it is herbicide and pesticide free.

What the studies say

Studies show EPO may help with acne legions and chelitis, a condition that causes inflamed and painful lips caused by acne drugs. There is also some research supporting its use in reducing pain for both diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis sufferers, as well as its use in combating cyclical mastalgia (breast pain) and PMS symptoms. Although there is promising evidence that evening primrose oil may benefit some conditions, research is still emerging.
