I believe it's for menopausal women, or women suffering from PMS.

Reply:First is not a medication, it is considered a herbal supplement.

Evening Primrose Oil contains GLA which is known to help prevent hardening of the arteries, heart disease, PMS, multiple sclerosis, inflammation, enhances the release of hormones including estrogen and testerone, aids in lowering cholesterol and used in the treatment of cirrhosis of the liver.

EPO has been shown to be beneficial for a wide range of conditions.

Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) – has been shown to eradicate swollen abdomen and breast discomfort as well as reducing irritability and depression.

Eczema and other skin disorders – available on prescription for eczema Psoriasis may be helped by EPO and Fish Oils.

Cholesterol and Blood Pressure – has been shown to reduce high serum cholesterol and blood pressure, but may take several weeks or longer to achieve.

Rheumatoid Arthritis – sufferers have discontinued use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs after supplementation, but it is more effective when taken in conjunction with fish oils.

Alcoholism – may make withdrawal easier, and reduce post-drinking depression.

Immune System – low levels of essential fatty acids may stop the action of interferon, and body’s natural virus killer.

Other conditions – Obesity, Benign Breast Disease, Childhood Hyperactivity and Schizophrenia have all been shown to be helped by EPO supplementation.


EPO is rich in the fatty acid gamma linolenic acid (GLA), which is an important intermediary in the metabolic conversion of linolenic acid into Prostaglandin E1 (PGE1). PGE1 is one of many prostaglandins which are interconvertible, and which modulate the action of many hormones.
