GLA interferes with the production of prostaglandins during menstruation, lessening menstrual cramps and potentially decreasing other menstrual symptoms such as breast tenderness and cravings.
Evening Primrose Oil has has an equally healing effect on various skin conditions, including acne, eczema and rosacea. Some studies have indicated Evening Primrose Oil to have a significantly greater effect than a placebo on inflammation in eczema sufferers. Its ability to reduce inflammation also makes it effective against rosacea. The fatty acids in the oil work to dilute sebum, which is over-secreted in many acne sufferers.
