The therapeutic value of primrose oil (PO) comes from its gamma linolenic acid (GLA) content, which has a number of diverse health benefits. GLA, an omega-6 essential fatty acid, has been shown to promote blood circulation, improve fatty acid balance, and support a healthy cycle of inflammation.
PO plays a key role in maintaining normal inflammatory balance in various populations, including adults with blood sugar-related nerve complaints and women with hormonal imbalances. PO has also been shown to support joint mobility and comfort and promote healthy skin.
Primrose oil has a high concentration of gamma linolenic acid, which supports the production of prostaglandin E1 (PGE1). Prostaglandins are important cellular messengers with a variety of strong physiologic effects, especially on the cardiovascular and immune systems. PGE1 is known to enhance vasodilation and support healthy blood circulation, promote healthy inflammatory balance and strengthen immune function. By making blood platelets slippery, allowing for better blood flow, PGE1 helps to support arterial and cardiovascular health. PGE1 also helps in modulating cholesterol synthesis and maintaining normal blood pressure levels. PO creates prostaglandins, which are a hormone-like substance that relieves cramps, pain, depression, and irritability. The dose that is usually suggested for Primrose Oil is between 3 and 6 grams of PO making sure the dose has 270 to 540 mg of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), although there has not been any real standardization of dosages and the FDA does not regulate herbs like Primrose.
