Optimal Primrose by Seeking Health contains 1,300 mg of organic, unrefined evening primrose seed oil, supplying a concentrated source of biologically active gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). Gamma-linolenic acid is an omega-6 fatty acid that must be produced within the body from linoleic acid, which must be supplied from dietary sources such as vegetable oils. The gamma-linolenic acid, linoleic acid and other nutrients in evening primrose oil are essential for maintaining healthy cell structure and nerve function and may also help support skin elasticity, healthy weight maintenance and normal hormone balance, being of particular importance to women's health. Optimal Primrose Oil is cold-pressed without hexane or other solvents.*

Evening primrose oil is derived from the seeds of a wildflower native to North America, which was used in traditional Native American cultures both topically and internally to support normal healing processes and overall wellness. The high concentrations of essential fatty acids, including GLA, in the seeds of the evening primrose are thought to be largely responsible for the remarkable therapeutic properties of the plant. Because only few plants provide notable amounts of GLA, dietary intake of this nutrient is typically low, and the body must make much of its supply of GLA from linoleic acid, a fatty acid present in certain fruit and nut oils. GLA may provide support for women during menstruation and menopause. It may also play a role in supporting circulatory health and a healthy inflammation response.*

Suggested Use

I will miss this...
So sorry to see this product go! I have severe pelvic and abdominal pain during ovulation and the last half of my cycle. This product works wonders for the pain. I take one or two in the mornings as needed and it allows me to work. I have never found a brand of GLA that is as helpful as Seeking Health's version. Review by Bridget (Posted on 7/24/2018)
Did a good job for my wife
Really helped my wife with cramps and her skin. She really likes this product. Review by Shaun (Posted on 7/23/2018)
Helped with my PMS so much!!!!
Prior to taking this, I would be so moody, bloated, cramping, and tired for two whole weeks prior to my period. This caused such a major problem with my relationship, because the depression was getting really bad. I read the reviews on this product and decided to give it a try. I didn't think it would help any, but was I wrong. Its takes about 60-90 days to start seeing a difference. My girlfriend said my moods have really changed, we don't fight prior to my period. That is how bad it got. I used to know by my PMS that my monthly was about to start and now i can't. Review by Terri (Posted on 4/12/2018)
Great Product

Great for Fibrocystic breasts
I decided to try evening primrose oil by seeking health to see if it would help my fibrocystic breast pain that I feel during my menstrual cycle. The past two months have been great and I don't have any pain since using this product ! I'm very pleased with using this product! Review by mktrina (Posted on 12/30/2012)
