Exploring the Benefits of Primrose Oil: All You Need to Know

Ang evening primrose oil (EPO) ay langis mula sa mga buto ng halamang yellow evening primrose wildflower o Oenothera biennis. Ang oil na ito ay sagana sa linoleic acid and gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) na siyang nakakatulong magpahupa ng inflammation sa katawan. Many women use EPO para maibsan ang sakit na dulot ng premenstrual syndrome (PMS) at maging ng menopause-related symptoms, as well as helping with skin conditions.

Evening primrose oil benefits include:

  • Hormonal Balance: Women suffering from premenstrual syndrome symptoms such as mood swings and bloating may find relief with evening primrose oil. Its gamma-linolenic acid may help regulate hormones.
  • Improve Bone Health and Pain Relief: This oil also has anti-inflammatory characteristics that can help reduce arthritic (bone) pain and breast pain (mastalgia) during PMS.
  • Heart Health: Omega-6 fatty acids in evening primrose oil may lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Regular use may help improve heart health.
  • Brain Function: Some studies suggest that the fatty acids in evening primrose oil could increase cognitive function and memory. (Further research is needed.)
