EPA is a long-chain omega-3 fatty acid with several important roles in the body. EPA oil helps to maintain healthy cell signalling and brain function and it is also converted by the body into eicosanoids – substances which help support a healthy heart and normal cholesterol levels, as well as regulate normal inflammatory response and boost the immune system.
Evening primrose oil is a rich source of the omega-6 fatty acid GLA. GLA is an important part of cell membranes, helping to keep them permeable for optimum cell messaging in the brain and for mental performance, as well as being a precursor to favourable eicosanoids. Cold-pressed and non-raffinated (extracted without the use of chemical solvents), our organic evening primrose oil is a botanical source of triterpenes (unlike generic evening primrose oil) – free radical scavenging substances, which may help to support the immune system.
Vitamin D3 contributes to the normal function of the immune system. Vitamin B5 contributes to the normal synthesis and metabolism of vitamin D, steroid hormones and some neurotransmitters. Vitamin B5 also contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue and supports normal mental performance. Vitamin E contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress.
