Why does Efamol use the Rigel Evening Primrose Oil?
Seeds from wild varieties of Evening Primrose will vary from crop to crop in the quantity and quality of Gamma-Linolenic Acid (GLA), an essential fatty acid. Hence, the wild plant cannot be relied upon for a consistent quantity or quality of oil. There are over 2000 species of Evening Primrose. Efamol Pure Evening Primrose Oil contains oil from Rigel seeds which contain up to 33% more GLA than found in wild plants.
Why you might supplement your diet with Evening Primrose Oil, a rich source of Omega-6 nutrients.
Some Omega 3-nutrients and Omega-6 nutrients can be made in the body; this includes the Omega-6 nutrient GLA. However, factors such as age, poor dietary choices including an excess of saturated fats and more can reduce the body’s efficiency in this process. With today’s busy lifestyles we don’t always get enough of what is good for us. Following a varied and balanced diet ensures that you can get an adequate dietary intake of these important nutrients.
