    For centuries‚ Europeans and Native Americans have used evening primrose oil--which is derived from a yellow flowering plant--as traditional medicine. Now‚ you can get it in convenient capsule form. Every capsule of E.P.O. by Pure Encapsulations provides 500 milligrams of cold-pressed evening primrose seed oil.

    Why is this important? Evening primrose oil is a good source of several essential fatty acids‚ most prominently gamma linolenic acid (GLA). GLA plays several essential roles in supporting well-being. For example‚ it may promote premenstrual comfort in pre-menopausal women‚ potentially relieving mild breast pain and other symptoms that distract from everyday life during that time of the month. Its potential ability to support cardiovascular functioning also seems to be particularly significant in the female body.

    In addition‚ the human body converts GLA into dihomogammalinolenic acid (DGLA)‚ a substance that may support joint comfort in several ways. DGLA may support healthy cytokine activity and the sufficient production of E1 prostaglandins (PGE1)‚ which may lessen pain and stiffness by providing inflammation relief.

    Furthermore‚ EPO may have a positive effect on your appearance. Gamma linolenic acid may work to modulate IFN-gamma and the metabolism of eicosanoids; as a result‚ evening primrose oil may improve skin health and promote clearer skin with less redness or irritation. Each softgel capsule of E.P.O. 500 mg contains a minimum of 45 milligrams (nine percent) of GLA.

    Take one to four softgels daily‚ in divided doses. You can take this supplement either with or between meals. At the recommended dosage‚ each 250-capsule bottle of Pure Encapsulations' E.P.O. 500 mg should last from two to eight months.

    Pure Encapsulations seeks to formulate and manufacture high-quality‚ hypoallergenic dietary supplements. Quality control during the formulation and manufacturing process is paramount. All Pure Encapsulations products are made with the most bioavailable ingredients possible.

    My GYN suggested I try this E.P.O. (Evening Primrose Oil) by Pure Encapsulations and melatonin for my insomnia after I had tried other supplements and prescriptions that either failed or caused adverse reactions. This supplement allows me to get the rest I need.

    I was instructed to take E.P.O. (Evening Primrose Oil) by Pure Encapsulations 3x/day for the 2 weeks leading up to my period. When I remember to do so, it helps decrease my breast tenderness.

    Pros

    Helps

    Cons

    Having to take it 3x/day to get the benefits

    When I ran out of E.P.O. (Evening Primrose Oil) by Pure Encapsulations, I decided to try a less expensive one. However, it had WAY too many milligrams/serving than Pure Formulas did. My stomach and other parts suffered. I recently changed back to this one again, and it is just the right dosage for me.

    Pros

    The milligram amount and purity.

    Cons

    Pricey, but worth it!

    My Naturopathic doctor recommended Evening Primrose oil to help regulate my hormones & address underlying causes of symptoms. Have been using E.P.O. (Evening Primrose Oil) by Pure Encapsulations for several months, but still working on hormonal imbalances & symptoms. Hopefully this is helping as a small piece of the puzzle, but it's hard to say. This seems to be a quality brand, from looking at the ingredients, no additives & the oil is cold pressed. I can't speak to the sourcing of the oil & other ingredients since i don't know anything about that but i order several products from this company and believe they are a reliable & reputable source of clean products. I have contacted them with questions in the past & they are very responsive if you wanted to contact them for more info on the product such as ingredient sourcing. Pure Encapsulations has been recommended by several different practitioners on my health care team & I will continue to order this brand.

    Pros

    No additives. cold-pressed oil. reliable, reputable brand. company responsive to inquiries.

    Cons

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
  • Excellent product!

    Gelatin capsules. Much prefer vegetarian

    I started taking E.P.O. (Evening Primrose Oil) by Pure Encapsulations to help my thyroid and hot flashes. When I did, my blood pressure dropped a lot, so much that I had to quit taking my BP meds. This was great news as my Benicar was almost $800 for 90 days and I could not afford it. My blood pressure is now running about 112 over 66 which is phenomenal. I take one of these in the morning. Wish I had known this long ago as I could have saved a lot of money. This is also good to help you loose weight. IT IS A WONDER PILL FOR ME and I will always take it because it does your body good in so many ways. Great product.

    Pros

    Lowers my blood pressure, helps me loose weight, helping with my hot flashes and who knows what else.

    Cons

    Dislike nothing about this product.

    I love E.P.O by Pure Encapsulations. I'm 43 and thin. I take 1 gram a day in divided doses from the day I start my period until ovulation. For the next 14 days I take 3 grams a day 3 pills in AM and 3 in the PM. I'm not irritable, my breasts don't hurt, and I'm not insanely hungry. I've tried other less expensive products and I don't think they work as well as this one!

    Pros

    What's not to love.

    Cons

    Price.
