The good folks at Rejuvenative put fresh, raw, organic evening primrose seeds into a low temperature oil press and immediately bottle and refrigerate the oil for maximum freshness. The 100% organic Evening Primrose Oil is cold pressed — meaning the pressing temperature never exceeds 90 to 100 degrees Fahrenheit — resulting in little molecular change to the seeds.
This produces a pure, raw oil with nothing added, guaranteeing you will not be consuming hydrogenated trans-fatty acids. Instead, a good portion of the invaluable nutrients from the primrose seeds are retained!
Evening primrose oil uses and health benefits
Evening primrose oil contains gamma linoleic acid (GLA).* This is especially important as we age, because we lose the ability to convert dietary fats into GLA. But when primrose oil is consumed, the body converts its GLAs into prostaglandins, hormone-like compounds that help regulate various body functions.
The GLA in evening primrose oil promotes blood flow, an important factor in supporting male and female reproductive functions.* Additionally, many pregnant women and midwives use it to support pregnancy and labor.*
Evening primrose oil and its essential fatty acids also nourish the hair, scalp and nails.*
