Clayton's Health Facts: Evening Primrose Oil.

Clayton South, SPN (ISSA), is a recognized expert in the bodybuilding / fitness industry with over 150 bodybuilding, fitness and nutrition publications to his credit.
Evening Primrose, a small, yellow wildflower (Oenothera biennis), has been used medicinally for centuries.

The oil, pressed from the seed, is rich in linoleic acid, an essential fatty acid (EFA). "Essential" means that we have to consume the nutrient because the body does not produce it.

Fortunately, EFAs are plentiful in foods, notably nuts and seeds. These polyunsaturated fats are good fats, unlike the saturated fats that contribute to heart disease.

Evening Primrose Oil also supplies another fatty acid, known as gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), not to be confused with Alpha-Linolenic Acid (LNA), which is one of the omega-3 fatty acids.
