Did you know?

The common evening primrose (Oenothera biennis) is a herbaceous plant up to one meter high that often grows along roadsides or uncultivated areas in Germany. Its large, yellow flowers give off an intense, sweet fragrance, especially in the evening hours. A special phenomenon of the evening primrose is the rapid opening of its flowers. The plant opens them in a smooth movement within a few minutes. The evening primrose was originally native to America, from where it was introduced to Europe as an ornamental plant in 1620. In North America, Native Americans used the seeds of the evening primrose, which were pounded into a paste, as a remedy. During the 18th and 19th centuries, the plant was cultivated in Europe as a vegetable and its roots, but also its leaves, flowers and seeds were used as food. The taproot was often colloquially called "ham root" or "ham herb" because of its pink color when cooked. Typically, the plant's oil contains between 65-80% of diunsaturated linoleic acid and 8-14% of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), which is an omega-6 tri-unsaturated fatty acid. Since the high-quality evening primrose oil is usually very expensive, cheaper hemp oil is sometimes used instead, which, however, has a lower GLA content.

FAQs

How should you take evening primrose oil?

Take 2 capsules unchewed three times a day with sufficient water.

Can evening primrose oil cause side effects?

In rare cases, taking evening primrose oil can cause headaches, nausea or gastrointestinal problems. If you experience any side effects, please consult your doctor or pharmacist regarding the intake.

Can I open the capsule?

The capsule can be opened easily. Please note, however, that the contents of the capsule are an oil that is not water-soluble. However, there is the option of adding the oil to a meal, for example.


Which essential substances are included?

Evening primrose oil contains the essential fatty acids linoleic acid and linolenic acid. Most of the oil is linoleic acid and a smaller part is linolenic acid.

What is the difference between linoleic acid and linolenic acid?

Linoleic acid is an omega-6 diunsaturated fatty acid that is an essential nutrient for the body to obtain from the diet. In the body, various other important fatty acids are synthesized from linoleic acid via intermediate stages. Linolenic acid is a tri-unsaturated omega-6 fatty acid that can exist in a variety of forms. The gamma-linolenic acid contained in evening primrose oil, like linoleic acid, is essential for the body. Partly it can be synthesized from linoleic acid. In the body, linolenic acid plays an important role in various biochemical processes.
