Evening Primrose Oil (EPO) is the oil from the seed of the Evening Primrose plant (Onagraceae Oneothera). Containing some the highest levels of the polyunsaturated fatty acid or essential fatty acid (EFA) GLA found in the plant world. Classed as an Omega 6 EFA, GLA is a powerful tool used by the body to control inflammation. As the body cannot manufacture EFA’s they must be sourced through diet or supplementation.

GLA and the 10 other fatty acids found in O2B EPO are essential for cellular structure and it’s this cellular support that is largely responsible for the remarkable healing properties of the plant. EPO also contains 7 out of the 9 essential amino acids and a further 7 amino acids (arginine, cysteine, phenylalanine, glycine, histadine, isoleucine, lucien, lysine, proline, lysine, threonine, tyrosine, valine) and an array of minerals including potassium, magnesium, manganese, copper, boron, iron, zinc, calcium and phosphorus.
