FAQ About Evening Primrose Oil
What is "Evening Primrose Oil"?
Evening Primrose Oil is oil from the seed of the Evening Primrose plant, containing
up to 10% Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA)...
The Evening Primrose is a plant commonly found in dry, open places, in fields
and along roadsides. Chiefly a night bloomer, Evening Primrose opens so fast
you can literally watch it bloom before your eyes. It has showy single flowers
in pink, white or yellow and can reach 6 feet with blooms at the top. The pointed
buds open at dusk, hence the name Evening Primrose.
American Indians used Evening Primrose roots in tea for obesity and bowel pains,
and in a pulp for piles, bruises and on muscles to give strength. Today Evening
Primrose crops are grown commercially in many parts of the world. The oil is
found in the Evening Primrose seed, which contains 8-10% GLA.
What is the difference between Borage Oil and Evening Primrose Oil?
Borage Oil is much higher in potency since it contains more than twice as much
Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA)...
Both Borage and Evening Primrose Oil contain the same active ingredient, GLA,
which offers many benefits for the body. The big difference between the two
is the concentration of GLA in Borage is more than twice as high - while Evening
Primrose Oil typically contains between 8% and 10% GLA, Borage Oil contains
between 20% and 24% GLA. Borage Oil offers more potency per capsule, which may
allow you to take fewer capsules to achieve the same benefits - you may also
take the same number of capsules and experience greater benefits!
For example, if you are currently taking four 1,000 mg capsules of Evening Primrose
Oil daily for rheumatoid arthritis, you may prefer to switch to Borage Oil and
take only two 1,000 mg capsules daily - or you may switch to an equal number
of Borage Oil capsules and potentially experience greater reduction in your
