Blackmores Evening Primrose Oil 1 g contains cold-pressed EPO. EPO is a natural source of the important omega-6 fatty acid gamma-linolenic acid (GLA).

Low levels of GLA have been found in women with PMS and adults as well as children with eczema.

Why use

Evening primrose oil (EPO) is a source of the omega-6 essential fatty acids gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) and linoleic acid (LA). Conditions that involve inflammation, such as eczema, may benefit from supplementation with omega-6 essential fatty acids.

Low levels of GLA have been found in women with premenstrual syndrome (PMS). Supplementing with EPO may help with the symptoms of PMS. Lifestyle factors such as excess saturated fats in the diet, ongoing high stress levels, alcohol consumption, and smoking may all affect GLA metabolism, leading to the need for dietary supplementation.

The Blackmores difference

Blackmores sources only the best oils that are cold-pressed and rigorously tested for quality and highly purified.

Can I use Blackmores primrose, fish oil and calcium together?
Hi may I know whether the evening primrose oil is suitable for vegetarian? My concern is the source of the capsule, cos I know most of it is made up bovine source.

Thanks and regards

Does evening primrose oil affect the menstrual cycle? I started to take 2 capsoles after my lastest period and now my next period has delayed for 2 weeks.
Thank you very much

Hi Blackmores team,

I have purchased this product and intend to use it in 3 months. I would like to ask whether I can continuously use this product in a year or I need to take a rest for like 2 or 3 months before going on?

Thanks and best regards,
