Primrose OilEvening primrose oil supplements are considered by many herbalists as one of the best sources of omega-6 essential fatty acids, particularly gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). Sometimes abbreviated as EPO, this natural, plant-based oil is made from a small yellow colored flowering plant native to North America and Europe.

Known to provide a variety of health benefits, evening primrose oil has been used successfully for decades to help boost fertility in women. Containing high levels of the omega-6 essential fatty acid, gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), an essential fatty acid that the body uses for growth and development, evening primrose oil may help boost fertility efforts by strengthening the placenta, helping to increase cervical mucous, and strengthen the uterine lining which is the nurturing environment a fertilized egg needs to implant and grow. Europeans have been using it for years to treat all types of infertility issues including prolonging the life of a sperm within the reproductive system.

Recent studies indicate that the GLA present in evening primrose oil works well at reducing inflammation throughout the entire body, including the reproductive system where inflammation can cause blockages and other infertility concerns. This is due to its ability to convert the GLA found in the plant oil to hormone-like compounds that help to reduce inflammation.

Additionally, these anti-inflammatory properties may offer additional benefits such as helping ease the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis and chest discomfort. This amazing oil is also recognized as an efficient remedy for eczema and a number of other skin problems due partly to its GLA content and other essential fatty acids which are necessary to correct skin health.
