Evening primrose oil is the oil derived from the seeds of the evening primrose (Oenotherabiennis) plant.
Often abbreviated to EPO, evening primrose oil is a rich source of omega-6 essential fatty acids. In particular, it contains one known as gamma linolenic acid (GLA), which is also found in other plant-based oils. Evening primrose oil contains linoleic acid as well as GLA - both are essential components of myelin, the protective coating around nerve fibers, and the neuronal cell membrane. Commercial preparations of evening primrose oil are typically standardized to 8% GLA and 72% linoleic acid.
The recommended dose of evening primrose oil is 1 to 2 capsules a day, at a dose of 500 mg each capsule.
