Evening Primrose Oil provides an important omega 6 fatty acid called gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). Omega 6 fatty acids are essential nutrients needed by humans as part of the body's metabolic processes. Most people cannot produce sufficient quantities of GLA from the diet for optimal health due to genetic limitation, nutrient deficiency or blockage by other dietary factors. Kordel’s Evening Primrose Oil plus E200 is an ideal way of obtaining this important fatty acid. Kordel's Evening Primrose Oil E provides the combined benefits of evening primrose oil and natural vitamin E to promote healthy skin and reduce premenstrual and menopausal symptoms.
FOR RELIEVING PREMENSTRUAL SYMPTOMS
Kordel's Evening Primrose Oil contains 10% gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), an essential omega 6 fatty acid necessary for the synthesis of prostaglandins. Prostaglandins is a group of compounds needed for good health. They control many of the body’s essential functions which affect muscular cramps, pain and inflammation. Evening primrose oil can help relieve premenstrual symptoms (PMS), such as breast tenderness and water retention. Researchers have found that premenstrual symptoms are often related to an imbalance of fatty acids in the body. Studies have also suggested that vitamin E can improve PMS symptoms too.
FOR RELIEVING MENOPAUSE SYMPTOMS
Both evening primrose oil and vitamin E have been shown to relieve the symptoms of menopause. Vitamin E helps to manage the incidence of “hot flushes” in menopausal women.
PROMOTES HEALTHY SKIN AND HAIR
Evening primrose oil contains essential fatty acids (EFA) that are needed for healthy skin and hair. An EFA deficiency results in dry skin, flaking dandruff, brittle nails and thinning hair. Supplementing the diet with GLA from evening primrose oil has shown excellent results. It is particularly useful in managing skin problems, such as eczema, skin sensitivity and acne, through its anti-inflammatory activity. Vitamin E aids blood circulation by facilitating the supply of oxygen in the body and maintains healthy skin. It is an effective antioxidant, as it helps to control damage to our skin by free radicals. Vitamin E helps heal wounds and reduces internal and external scar formation.
Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant. It helps to scavenge free radicals. Work done on the role of antioxidants in controlling free radical damage, suggests that combining evening primrose oil together with vitamin E may be more effective. This is because vitamin E protects the polyunsaturated fats from rancidity and reduces the damage caused to cell membranes by the production of free radicals.
PREVENTION OF DRY EYE PROBLEMS
Studies have shown that omega 6 fatty acids, present in the Evening Primrose Oil (EPO) group can help alleviate dry eye syndrome (DES), and improving overall lens comfort in patients suffering from contact lens discomfort associated with dry eyes. DES is a problem where there is an insufficient amount of tears to moisten the front surface of the eye.
