Evening Primrose Oil is derived from the seeds of the evening primrose plant which is native to North America. It is a valuable source of the omega-6 fatty acid gamma linolenic acid, which is a healthy essential fat that has a vast array of positive effects in the body. The body cannot produce essential fatty acids and it is therefore important that they be obtained through diet or supplementation.
