Ultra Prim OmegaFactors Evening Primrose Oil by Natural Factors
Natural Factors - OmegaFactors Ultra Prim Evening Primrose Oil 1000 mg. - 90 Softgels
Natural Factors Omega Factors UltraPrim is made from the highest quality Evening Primrose Oil, a natural source of the Omega-6 essential fatty acid GLA. Ultra Prim uses an exclusive extraction process, a gentle method that crushes the seed to release its nutritional oil without the application of external heat or harmful solvents like alcohol, hexane, and organic chlorines.
GLA essential fatty acids are needed to form important prostaglandins that maintain and regulate vital body functions. Evening Primrose Oil is also used to enhance women’s well-being. Vitamin E is added to enhance long term freshness and ensure a more stable product without artificial preservatives.
What is Evening Primrose Oil:
Evening primrose oil (EPO), comes from the seeds of the evening primrose plant. Like black currant seed oil and borage oil, EPO contains gamma linolenic acid (GLA), a fatty acid that the body converts to a hormone-like substance called prostaglandin E1 (PGE1).
Where is it found?
EPO is found primarily in supplements. Its presumed active ingredient, GLA, can also be found in black currant seed oil and borage oil supplements. However, it is not known whether the effects of these three oils in the body are the same.

A quality herbal product starts with the highest quality fresh organic plant material. The efficacy of herbal products has always been affected by growing conditions, harvesting, processing and storage. At Factor Farms in beautiful Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada our quality can be guaranteed as we control the entire process from seedling to finished product.
To grow herbs organically no chemical fertilizers, herbicides, fungicides or pesticides are allowed. We use only natural substances that have been approved by the organic industry. You can be assured that the fresh herb extracts contain no traces of unwanted chemical. Even the seed and plant sources are organic.
To be organically certified, certification inspectors work closely with growers to ensure that the organic standards are adhered to. We must keep detailed records of what we use on our farm. Even after harvest, processing is regulated so that no harmful chemicals are used to manufacture the fresh herb extracts.
Local cultivation of medicinal herbs at Factors Farms ensures that the herbs are picked, processed, and extracted at just the right time when the active ingredients are at their peak.
Natural Factor knows that the natural habitats of many herbs are shrinking and that over-harvesting from the wild can endanger native medicinal plant populations. So organic cultivation of herbs is preferred over "wild crafting".
