    Source Naturals - Evening Primrose Oil 1350 mg. - 60 Softgels

    Source Naturals Evening Primrose Oil is cold pressed and hexane-free. Gamma-linolenic acid or GLA, and linoleic acid are essential, polyunsaturated fatty acids. They are used by most cells in the body to produce the soothing prostaglandins (intracellular hormone-like messengers), which help maintain the balance of many functions in the body.

    About 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 Evening Primrose Oil 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.

    Source Naturals Evening Primrose Oil addresses the following body systems

    • Cells/DNA
      It is well known that our genes, consisting of DNA, hold the information codes for all of our unique traits, and they regulate all of the structure and function of our tissues and organs. Encoded in the DNA, and "turned on" by hormones or other messengers, are the mechanisms that produce the proteins, enzymes, and other compounds that the cell uses to carry out its differentiated functions. Even though each cell contains every gene for all bodily and mental functions, each cell has the ability to activate only those specific genes needed for that cell's specific function; the other genes remain silent or inactive. Various nutrients, plant extracts, and biochemical compounds can be seen as messengers. We can literally send instructions to our genes to perform healthy activities such as increase memory, burn fat, strengthen an immune response, or turn off gene expression that is detrimental to our health.
    • Inflammation Response
      Inflammation is for many an underlying biochemical imbalance that can lead to concerns about our health. Inflammation begins as a helpful part of the immune system's defense, but the problem for our health is when this natural defense process doesn't turn off. Because of various environmental triggers and lifestyle factors, such as pollution, stress, or nutrient-deficient junk food diets, the defense system stays on the attack, generating metabolic inflammation and damaging healthy cells and tissues. Our body goes to war with itself. The fire of inflammation, however, can be quenched with dietary, lifestyle and nutritional changes.
    • Immune
      During the Plague of the 14th century, one-third of the population of Europe died. The question is: why did the others live, even though they were also exposed to the Yersinia pestis bacteria? The answer may be the strength and responsiveness of their immune systems. The immune system is like an intelligent second brain with the unique ability to identify foreign compounds and to quickly produce the specific defenses needed to combat harmful invaders and protect us. The immune system uses a wide variety of cells and biochemicals located primarily in the blood stream and the gastrointestinal tract, such as T-cells, B-cells, macrophages, and Natural Killer cells. We can significantly strengthen and improve the functionality of the immune system through nutrition, supplements and lifestyle modifications.
    • Structure / Connective Tissue
      Our bodies are a stunning organization of various types of connective tissues. In the form of cartilage and bones, they uphold our bodies; in the form of joints, they allow our mobility; in the form of epidermal tissues - the skin - they form the body's mass and protect us from and connect us to, our environment. As we age, many people experience calcium deficiencies and bone problems. Similarly, joint problems are among the most debilitating aspects of aging. Yet with the proper nutrients and lifestyle changes, the bones and joints can remain strong, flexible, and active well into old age. Likewise, healthy, beautiful skin is a matter of diet and nutrition: the skin should be nourished with fatty acids, antioxidants, and vitamins, and a nutritious diet gives the skin sufficient nutrients and antioxidants for protection.

    Leaders of the Wellness Revolution
    Source Naturals was created in 1982 by C.E.O Ira Goldberg to support each individual's potential to enjoy optimal health. At that time, the kind of nutritional formulations he envisioned – for the maintenance of well-being and the enhancement of life – simply didn't exist. The idea of combining many nutrients, herbs and nutraceuticals in one formulation, though common today, was then a rarity. Source Naturals pioneered the concept with Wellness Formula, now the industry's #1 immune support product. Source Naturals subsequently introduced numerous award-winning formulas, recognized for their excellence in independent surveys and nutritional analyses. In addition to Wellness, these award-winners include Life Force Multiple, Mega-Kid Multiple, Inflama-Rest, the Skin Eternal line, Higher Mind, Essential Enzymes, Male Response, and more.

    Source Naturals' comprehensive Bio-Aligned Formulas help bring the power of alignment to your body. When formulating, Source Naturals evaluates the underlying causes of system imbalances, and then provides targeted nutrition to interdependent body systems. Source Naturals' line of more than 600 products also includes well-researched, single entity nutrients in their highest quality and most bioavailable forms. Source Naturals' nutritional supplements are at the leading edge of today's Wellness Revolution. This transformation in health consciousness also includes new perspectives in diet, lifestyle, emotional and spiritual development, and complementary health care. Source Naturals Strategy for Wellness is to provide education that empowers individuals to take responsibility for their health, rather than relying solely on outside medical authority. The result is people who are more productive and fulfilled, and a world that is stronger and healthier.
