Carlson Labs Golden Primrose Evening Primrose Oil 1300 mg 90 Soft Gels
Carlson Labs Golden Primrose is an Evening Primrose Oil. Always cold-pressed, Carlson Golden Primrose is an excellent source of the important fatty acids. It also provides naturally occurring antioxidant tocopherols, phytosterols, and a variety of trace nutrients. The seeds used are collected from fields entirely free of herbicides and pesticides. They are cleaned and Nutri-Processed without solvents or heat. The oil is then kept free of light and oxygen to preserve the quality.
Evening primrose oil comes from the seeds of the evening primrose plant. Like black currant seed oil and borage oil, evening primrose oil contains gamma linolenic acid (GLA), a fatty acid that the body converts to a hormone-like substance called prostaglandin E1 (PGE1).
Those with premenstrual syndrome, diabetes, scleroderma, Sjogren’s syndrome, tardive dyskinesia, eczema, and other skin conditions can have a metabolic block that interferes with the body’s ability to make GLA. In preliminary research, supplementation with EPO has helped people with these conditions. Many people in Western societies may be at least partially GLA-deficient as a result of aging, glucose intolerance, high dietary fat intake, and other problems. People with deficiencies would presumably benefit from supplemental GLA intake from EPO, black currant seed oil, or borage oil.
