Evening Primrose Oil is a natural herbal supplement derived from seeds of the evening primrose plant (Oenothera biennis). It is one of the richest sources of the unsaturated fatty acid Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA), also known as omega-6 fatty acid. The body converts GLA into prostaglandins, hormone-like molecules that have anti-inflammatory and pain relieving effects.
ORISSA® softgel capsules contain 500mg Evening Primrose Oil (EPO), of which 10% is Linolenic Acid (GLA), and provide important nutritional supplementation to women. The added Vitamin E provides antioxidant properties and maintains the integrity of the fatty acids.
