Description

ABOUT THE PLANT

The evening primrose is a tall, spiky plant that blooms only in the evening, hence its common name.

ABOUT THE OIL

Evening primrose oil is rich in fatty acids, in particular GLA. The GLA found in Evening Primrose oil is biologically important as it affects much of the enzyme activity in the body. Every process that takes place in the body is triggered by the action of various enzymes, including the production of prostaglandins. These hormone‑like substances regulate many of our bodily functions.
