    What it is; why it works

    The herb evening primrose oil is extracted from the evening primrose plant (Oenothera biennis), a wildflower found in North America, Europe and parts of Asia. The plant's pale yellow flowers open in the evening--hence its common name--and its seeds bear the special fatty oil(GLA/gamma linolenic acid) that is used in herbal healing today.

    It took modern research to unveil the therapeutic power contained within the seed oil: an essential fatty acid (EFA) called gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). Once processed in the body, GLA, an omega-6 fatty acid, exerts incredible anti-inflammatory and other healing actions.

    Evening primrose oil is certainly not the only source of GLA; various foods actually contain small amounts of it and the body produces GLA on its own from a number of dietary fats. But evening primrose oil offers an unusually concentrated source, with 7% to 10% of its fatty acids available in the form of GLA. Interestingly, borage oil features even more GLA (20% to 26%), and black currant oil offers rich stores as well (14% to 19%), but their effectiveness and safety for many ailments has not been as intensively examined as evening primrose oil. Nonetheless, some people prefer borage and black currant oils because they require a lower dose (at less total cost) for the same amount of GLA.

    The remarkably rich stores of GLA in evening primrose oil are what make it so valuable in healing. Taken internally, the body converts GLA into prostaglandins. These hormone like compounds help regulate various body functions, controlling inflammation in some cases and promoting it in others. The prostaglandins produced from GLA fall into the anti-inflammatory category.

    Specifically, evening primrose oil may help to:

    Relieve the discomforts of PMS (premenstrual syndrome), menstruation, endometriosis and fibrocystic breasts

    By interfering with the production of inflammatory prostaglandins released during menstruation, the GLA in evening primrose oil can greatly lessen menstrual cramps. It also minimizes premenstrual breast tenderness, irritable bowel flare-ups, and carbohydrate cravings, and helps to control endometriosis-associated inflammation.

    Many PMS sufferers are found to have unusually low levels of GLA in their systems, which is why supplements will help so much. Although the oil has not been widely used in this country for treating PMS, Europeans have long used it for this condition. In women with fibrocystic breasts, the oil's essential fatty acids can greatly minimize breast inflammation and promote the absorption of iodine, a mineral that can be present in abnormally low levels in women with this condition.

    Ease the joint pain and swelling of rheumatoid arthritis

    Supplementation with evening primrose oil and other sources of GLA has been shown to lessen the joint pain and swelling of this crippling disease.

    Treat memory deficiencies

    By boosting the transmission of nerve impulses, evening primrose oil may be valuable in treating this progressive brain disorder.

    Protect against the effects of aging

    As the body ages, it loses its ability to convert dietary fats into GLA. Because this essential fatty acid is involved in so many body processes, taking evening primrose oil can help to compensate for any deficiencies in GLA.

    Evening primrose oil may be one of the most essential supplements in a womens diet as she ages.
