Evening Primrose Oil ( Oenothera biennis )
The oil is a rich source of essential fatty acids, contains high levels of linolenic acid and gamma-linolenic acid which help to minimize menstrual problems, prevent the clotting of blood platelets, i.e. blood clotting; the oil also affects the secretion of the prolactin hormone which influences painful breast swelling before menstruation. It is therefore a great nutritional supplement for women suffering from the premenstrual syndrome or a painful or irregular period. Not only does it alleviate cramps and breast sensitivity, but it also effectively reduces the level of cholesterol in blood, lowers high blood pressure, has a positive impact on blood clotting and boosts immunity. It supports weight-losing without being on a diet and helps in the case of obesity. It is suitable for diabetic patients because it improves insulin utilization. It reduces hyper-function of the thyroid.
