EVENING PRIMROSE OIL
Evening primrose oil actually comes from a type of genus from the family of Onagraceae or the Evening Primrose Family. They are also called suncups or sundrops. This genus is a genus of around 125 species of annual, biennial and perennial herbaceous flowering plants. The flowers from this plant open up in the evening which is the reason for the name, “evening primrose.” The young roots from this plant can be eaten as a vegetable or the shoots can be eaten as a salad. The entire plant was used to prepare an infusion with astringent and sedative properties. It was thought to have a healing power in it to heal asthmatic coughs, gastro-intestinal disorders, whooping cough, and could be used as a sedative pain reliever. Although large well-designed studies are still needed, Evening Primrose Oil has received good scientific evidence for the effectiveness in the treatment of eczema and skin irritations.
GLA comes from the seed oil of evening primrose, blackcurrant seed oil, borage oil, and hemp seed oil. It can also be found in large quantities in edible hemp seeds and from spirulina, which is a cyanbacterium. The mature seeds contain approximately 7-10% of gamma-linolenic acid which is a rare essential fatty acid. The oil also contains around 70% of linoleic acid. Gamma-linolenic acid could also help fight against breast cancer. Another use for GLA is for an anti-inflammatory because it does not have the side effects of other anti-inflammatory drugs. GLA is also recommended for autoimmune disorders, arthritis, ezema, and PMS. Li-GLA is currently being studied in clinical trials for the treatment of HIV infections since it has the ability to destroy HIV-infected T cells in vitro. It does have a few side effects which include a reduction in hemoglobin, hematuria, gastrointestinal disturbance, fatigue, and headache.
