Evening Primrose Oil and its Role In Relieving PMS

As around 84% of pre-menopausal women suffer with symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (PMS) news of a trial in Brazil of this natural supplement will give them hope.

Evening Primrose Oil (EPO) is already one of the most trusted and researched natural health treatments – A new double blind, placebo controlled independent study from the Federal University of Pernambuco, Brazil reinforced a long history of existing research behind the role of GLA (gamma-linolenic acid) supplementation in relieving common symptoms of PMS. Also it seems that the benefit of a higher dose GLA treatment of (420 mg per day) won out over a lower dose (210 mg per day).

Women suffering with PMS may have a metabolic block that interferes with the body’s ability to make GLA, a natural chemical required for hormonal balance. This can be effectively corrected by supplementing with EPO which is rich in this natural ingredient.

The benefit of EPO in this area is not a new discovery by any means.

Another recent clinical trial from the University of Minnesota showed the effectiveness of EPO supplementation over six months in decreasing the severity of cyclical mastalgia (breast pain associated with the menstrual cycle). These results confirm other open trial results where Efamol Pure Evening Primrose Oil achieved improvements in breast tenderness, irritability, anxiety, depression, headache, fluid retention and tiredness. Efamol Pure Evening Primrose Oil is made from a unique variety of seed called Rigel that produces oil containing up to 33% more GLA than other evening primrose oils.

Stress reduction, a supporting diet and exercise are all factors in helping deal with severe PMS, but this natural supplement has certainly shown that it can be highly effective in helping to deal with these distressing monthly symptoms.
