Dear Blackmore team, I’ve been taking the evening primrose oil with zinc for few years already. Should I give myself a break? Or should I continue using them? I couldn’t find any sources for that. Thank you.
Dear Blackmore team, I'm taking the Evening Primrose Oil, Fish oil, and Bio ZinC (one capsule each, once per day) every day to help my hormonal acne. But I wonder if it is too excessive, is it appropriate for me to maintain this routine for a long time? I'm 170cm tall, 47kg. Would it be ok for me to double the dose?
Hi Blackmores team, may I know what the capsule used for this product is made from? And whether it is the same used for the capsules in your product Fish Oil 1000?

Hello Blackmores team. I have been using primrose oil for 1 month. How often will it improve with my period?
Hi Blackmores team. Does the Evening Primrose Oil delay period? I have been using EPO for 10 days ( 2 capsules a day) and my period is late for 4 days.
Hi! I have some acne and vulvar dermatitis, and I was wondering if EPO helps with these problems. Thank you!
Hi Blackmores team, Can I use Primrose oil and Bio Iron together? How to use? What should I take first? Take in the morning or night?
Hello, I read research articles saying taking primrose oil while breastfeeding is fine, so I purchases Blackmores’ without reading the warnings. I’ve been taking 2 capsules per day since my baby was 3 months old. I understand this is my responsibility, but could you please tell what possible risks are there for breastfeeding women taking Blackmores evening primrose oil? Thank you!
