Aliness Evening primrose oil is a dietary supplement containing unrefined cold pressed evening primrose seed oil, which is extremely rich in unsaturated omega-6 fatty acids, especially linoleic acid (LA) and gamma-linolenic acid (GLA).
The product shows a wide spectrum of health-promoting properties. It positively affects the functions of the circulatory system, promotes the normalization of blood pressure and helps to lower cholesterol. In addition, it supports the treatment of dermatological diseases (AD, acne, eczema). It is also recommended for women struggling with arduous PMS symptoms and mastalgia.
Evening primrose oil is obtained from seeds of a plant called a common primrose (Oenotherae biennis). The crucial is the production technology – cold pressing and resignation from refining that allow the preservation of all valuable nutrients, which increases the value of the oil. The pro-health properties of evening primrose oil are primarily due to the presence of essential fatty acids (EFA).
Evening primrose seeds contain nearly 20% of oil, which consists of about 80% of linoleic acid, 7% -10% of γ-linolenic acid (GLA) and a little amount of oleic, palmitic and stearic acids. Importantly, evening primrose seed oil is extremely bio-available.
Thanks to the high content of essential fatty acids, evening primrose oil helps to reduce the risk factors of cardiovascular disease, which include: too high level of cholesterol and triglycerides, hypertension and excessive aggregation of platelets.
This is largely due to the gamma-linolenic acid, or more precisely its metabolite, i.e. PGE1 prostaglandin. It helps to relax the blood vessels and promotes proper blood flow. In addition, it protects against the pathological clumping of platelets, reducing the tendency of clot formation.
In animal studies, it has been shown that the introduction of evening primrose oil results in an improved lipid profile and normalization of blood pressure. In addition, it helps to reduce the intensity of inflammation, which also contributes to the etiology of cardiovascular disease.
The antidote for skin problems
Evening primrose oil has a very beneficial effect on the condition of the skin. It favors the improvement of its elasticity and firmness, promotes the proper level of hydration, soothes the roughness. It is worth remembering that the ceramides present in the stratum corneum contain a large amount of linoleic acid. A deficiency of this compound increases the risk of lipid layer damage, which leads to disorders of the barrier function of the skin. In turn, a deficiency of gamma-linolenic acid promotes pathological inflammatory reactions.
Evening primrose oil can also be used in the treatment of dermatological diseases. It works great in patients with acne – it eases the intensity of inflammation and reduces the extent of efflorescence on the skin. It is also recommended for people suffering from atopic dermatitis. It helps to reduce itching and dryness of the skin and contributes to the regression of rash.
Stabilization of cell membranes
The high content of GLA acid gives reasons for using evening primrose oil in the treatment of such diseases as diabetic neuropathy, multiple sclerosis and Alzheimer's disease. Researchers have found a close correlation between the reduced EFA levels (mainly GLA) and the occurrence of these diseases. It seems that GLA acid, as a component of biological membranes, promotes their stabilization and improves transport across cell membranes. In addition, there are many animal studies that show that evening primrose reduces the disintegration of myelin and promotes the reconstruction of damaged nerves.
Health prophylaxis of women
Evening primrose oil is often recommended for women. Some studies have suggested that it may alleviate the symptoms known as premenstrual syndrome (PMS). According to the subjective opinion of the study participants who supplemented evening primrose oil, the back pain subsided and the swelling decreased. Women also reported an improvement in psychological well-being – their mood stabilized, they were less sensitive and less prone to crying. It was also observed that evening primrose oil turns to be very helpful in case of mastalgia (breast pain), especially if it is caused by premenstrual syndrome.
In summary, Aliness Evening primrose oil is an effective way to increase the supply of a very important compound, namely the gamma-linolenic acid. The supplement is recommended especially for people struggling with skin problems and women suffering from premenstrual syndrome. In addition, the preparation can be used as part of the prevention of heart and cardiovascular diseases.
During the supplementation with preparations containing evening primrose oil, it is also worth to ensure an adequate supply of omega-3 acids. This is to align the ratio between omega-3 and omega-6 intake.
Evening primrose oil may potentially slow blood clotting. Keep this in mind if you have problems with normal blood clotting, or if you are taking blood thinners (even popular aspirin or warfarin).
