The Evening Primrose is a plant native to North America, but it also grows in Europe and some parts of the Southern hemisphere as well. The name comes from its yellow flowers that bloom in the evening. Thousands of Evening Primrose plant seeds are crushed to extract oils, which have many preventive and therapeutic qualities and have become a standard recommendation of many herbalists for maintaining youth and prevention of many diseases. Evening primrose oil has been used since the 1930s as a traditional remedy for eczema(a condition in which the skin becomes inflamed, itchy, or scaly because of allergies or other irritation). More recent uses include conditions involving inflammation, such as rheumatoid arthritis and conditions affecting women’s health, such as breast pain associated with menstruation, menopause, and premenstrual syndrome (PMS).
 
 
 
What are the benefits?
 
Evening primrose oil contains high concentrations of 
fatty acid gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), which is largely responsible for the remarkable healing properties of the plant. In fact,evening primrose contains one of the highest concentrations known of this substance and only a few other plants contain it at all. GLA improves elasticity of the skin, helps to regulate hormones and improves nerve function related problems such as PMS and migraine.
 
 
 
Evening Primrose relieves symptoms of PMS, menopause and menstruation
 
By interfering with the production of inflammatory prostaglandins released during menstruation, GLA helps to lessen menstrual cramps. It may also minimise premenstrual breast tenderness, irritable bowel flareups, carbohydrate cravings, endometriosis-associated inflammation. Those who suffer from postmenopausal symptoms tend to have unusually low levels of GLA in the body, in which case supplements can alleviate these symptoms and promote well-being.
