Evening Primrose Oil 1000mgLatin Name: Oenothera biennisPlant Family: OnagraceaeOther Names: Tree Primrose, Fever Plant, Evening Star, Suncups, Sundrops, Herbe-aux-ânes, Huile D'Onagre, Huile de Primerose, Huile de Primevère Vespérale, Jambon de Jardinier, Jambon du Paysan, King's Cure-All, Night Willow-Herb, Onagraire, Onagre Commune, Primevère du Soir & Scabish.Description: Evening primrose oil is extracted from the seed of a biennial plant native to North America which is now cultivated in most temperate regions of the world. The plant reaches a height of 30-150cm. The leaves are alternate, sometimes opposite or whorled, simple, entire and lanceolate in shape with serrated margins, 5-20cm in length and olive green in colour. The hermaphrodite 4-petaled flowers form spikes and are bright yellow in colour, 2.5-5cm in diameter with 8 stamens. The fruit is a seed capsule approximately 2-4cm in length which contains many seeds each 1-2mm in length. Interesting Fact: Did you know that in a study of 60 people with eczema, Gamma-Linolenic Acid (GLA) – the essential fatty acid contained in evening primrose oil which accounts for its therapeutic benefits – was found to be superior to a placebo in reducing the itching and oozing of eczematous skin conditions? Those in the GLA group took 274mg twice a day (an amount found in approximately seven 1000mg evening primrose capsules) for 12 weeks. Examinations by a dermatologist every four weeks confirmed the gradual improvement of symptoms reported by these patients.Usage Info: Food supplements should not be used as a substitute for a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle.
