What Is Evening Primorose Oil ?
Evening primrose oil (Oenothera biennis) comes from the seeds of a wildflower that grows throughout the United States. The oil, gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), is an omega-6 essential fatty acid that is also found in the seeds of borage and black currant. The human body cannot make GLA so it must be obtained from outside sources. However, the body can convert another omega-6 fatty acid, linoleic acid found in nuts and vegetable oils, to GLA. In general, however, GLA is hard to come by in the diet.
As with most dietary supplements, do not expect immediate results when taking EPO supplements; it usually takes six to eight weeks for benefits to appear.
Evening primrose oil is available in oil form or in capsules. Generally, high-quality EPO will be certified as organic by a reputable third party and packaged in light-resistant containers.
Possible Drug Interactions
GLA may increase the risk of bleeding in patients taking anticoagulants (blood thinners) such as aspirin, warfarin (Coumadin) and clopidogrel (Plavix). It may lower blood pressure in people taking medication for high blood pressure. It also may interact adversely with a number of antidepressants.
Evening Primrose Oil Side Effects
The rare side effects that do occur usually are mild and may mean the dose is too high. They include nausea, headache, stomach, pain and loose stools.
Look for high-quality evening primrose oil certified as organic by a reputable third party. The pills or oil should be packaged in light-resistant containers.
