$34.99The seed oil of Evening Primrose (Oenothera biennis) provides gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), an essential omega-6 fatty acid. Cold-pressed without hexane or other solvents, these softgels contain 76 mg of biologically active GLA. Evening primrose supports cartilage and joint function, neuroendocrine and cognitive health, skin and connective tissue health, and helps maintain nerve function, and cardiovascular health.
$41.80Evening primrose oil is a rich source of the omega-6 fatty acids linoleic acid (LA) and gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). LA is an essential fatty acid that cannot be synthesized by the body and must be obtained in foods. GLA is rare in foods, but can be biosynthesized from LA. These fatty acids are the precursors of prostaglandins — physiologically active lipid compounds that have diverse functions including vasodilatation and regulation of the inflammatory response.

$32.99Although Western diets typically contain large amounts of omega-6 essential fatty acids from corn and safflower oils, the body’s conversion to the active GLA form can be impeded by various factors, thus disturbing fatty acid balance in favor of synthesis of proinflammatory compounds. Borage oil provides a higher ratio of GLA to linoleic acid than evening primrose oil and similar plant oils and can be used to help reestablish a healthier omega-6 fatty acid balance.† Cold-pressed and free of hexane or other solvents.
