Evening Primrose Oil (EPO), is the oil derived from the seeds of the evening primrose plant. It has a number of popular uses and is widely available in supplement form. One of the most important ingredients in evening primrose oil is gamma linolenic acid (GLA), which is also found in other plant-based oils. The recommended dose of evening primrose oil is 8-12 capsules a day, at a dose of 500mg per capsule.
EPO is a rich source of omega-6 essential fatty acids and contains linolecia acid as well as GLA - both are essential components of myelin, the protective coating around nerve fibers, and the neuronal cell membrane. EPO is thought to help a wide variety of conditions including eczema, nerve pain, and osteoporosis.
