An Overview Of The Benefits Of Using
Evening Primrose
Primrose Oil
Page 1


Evening primrose is a plant that grows throughout the U.S. although it
can also be found in European countries. Even though commercial
preparations of evening primrose oil have only been introduced in the
twenties, the herb itself has been in use for four centuries already, and
in the 1600s have even earned the title "King's Cure-all" due to the
plenitude of maladies it was said to cure.
Evening primrose oil benefits
Evening primrose oil or EPO contains gamma-linoleic acid or GLA
which is categorized as an omega-6 fatty acid and it is known to have
anti-inflammatory properties. Evening primrose roots are consumed
in many European countries as a vegetable. They are said to impart a
peppery flavor, which is probably the reason why many people also
eat the shoots as a salad.
Traditionally, parts of the evening
primrose were softened, moistened,
heated, and then spread on cloth which is
then applied to the skin to treat inflamed
areas and improve circulation.
Commercial preparations of evening
primrose oil has also been made available
since the first half of the 20th century as a
remedy for eczema. In recent years, it is
also given to patients suffering from conditions which involve
inflammation, such as rheumatoid arthritis.
Women also take evening primrose oil to manage discomforts that are
related to their menstruation cycle or menopause. Other evening
primrose oil benefits include its possible role in curing or suppressing
cancer growth.
Available forms
Oil and capsules are the most common commercial forms of EPO.
They can be bought from health stores offline and online. In order for
you to get high-quality evening primrose oil and capsules, you need to

purchase them from reliable vendors. EPO from reputable
manufacturers are marked certified organic by an independent agency,
date of manufacture and expiry, and come in light-resistant jars or
bottles. High-quality EPO products also have around 8% of gamma-
linoleic acid contained in them.
Precautions
On the whole, side effects are rare among those who take evening
primrose oil in its suggested dose. As with any herbal medicine,
evening primrose does have some side effects and possible
interactions with other pharmaceutical and herbal drugs. Some of the
complaints mentioned by those who have taken it include gastric
disturbances as well as headache. Those who have seizure disorders
should not take evening primrose products, because omega-6 has been
reported to bring about seizure episodes in this cohort. Patients taking
blood thinners or those suffering from blood-related conditions should
avoid using this product unless prescribed.
As with any complementary and alternative form of medicine, you
need to inform your doctor of your plans to use evening primrose oil
to give him a full picture of how you manage your health, so
necessary changes to your care can be made.
