EPA is an especially important type of long-chain omega-3 fatty acid, considered to be the dominant omega-3 fat for brain function. EPA helps to keep cell membranes flexible, ensuring nutrients flow efficiently in and out of cells, for optimal cell signalling and brain function. EPA is also converted by the body into a family of hormone-like chemicals called eicosanoids. These substances support a wide range of physical processes that affect cardiovascular health, inflammatory response and immune function.
Evening primrose oil is a rich source of the omega-6 fatty acid GLA. GLA is an integral part of cell membranes, helping to keep them permeable for optimum brain function, 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. GLA works especially well alongside pure EPA in many areas of health.
