The majority of North Americans have difficulty converting Linolenic Acid (LA) from the diet into needed Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA) because of dietary deficiencies, aging and disease conditions. This makes supplementation of Evening Primrose Oil - a rich source of GLA - so important. Without sufficient GLA intake, the formation of prostaglandins is inhibited, which in turn affects the regulation of inflammation, blood pressure and hormone production. Health First Evening Primrose Oil is cold-pressed and hexane-free to provide consumers with an effective oil. It is also non-GMO. Health First Evening Primrose Oil contains a minimum of 9.5% GLA, with 10 IU of natural Vitamin E to keep the oil shelf-stable.
