Evening Primrose Oil#*

  • May be used to help improve and decrease the severity of cyclic mastalgia7

  • May decrease the intensity of menopausal hot flashes8

Evening primrose oil (EPO) is derived from the seeds of the plant Oenothera biennis and other species. It contains gamma-linoleic acid (GLA) and linoleic acid (LA). GLA is a plant derived omega 6. Although it is a member of the omega 6 family, it is metabolised differently than other omega 6’s9.

Our modern Western diet is rife with omega 6 fats and deficient in omega 3 fats. There is some concern that we are consuming more omega 6’s than we should be. Articles suggest that consuming too much omega 6 can promote inflammation, implying that it may not be good for us10. While it is true that some types of omega 6 fatty acids can promote inflammation, such as Arachidonic Acid (AA), it is not the case for all omega 6’s particularly not GLA10.

The most commonly consumed omega 6 in our diet is Arachidonic Acid (AA) found in meat, eggs and dairy products. It is vital for muscle growth, brain development and maintaining a healthy nervous system, however, when consumed in excess it can promote inflammation11,12. We also consume a high amount of another omega 6 fatty acid called Linoleic Acid (LA), found in nuts, butter, seeds and vegetable oil. Usually LA gets digested in our body and converted to GLA11,12.

However, when there is an excess of AA in our body, it prevents LA from being converted into GLA. When LA is not converted into GLA, it can pose a problem, as the balance between pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory nutrients is not maintained11,12. When we consume anti-inflammatory nutrients such as GLA, it balances the inflammatory properties of AA and other pro-inflammatory nutrients. Therefore EPO has the ability to neutralises and reverse inflammation11,12.
