What is Eve500?

EVE 500 contains Evening Primrose Oil, a light yellow vegetable oil extracted from the seeds of the Evening Primrose (Oenothera biennis) plant. Approximately 5000 seeds provide 500 mg of the oil (contents of one capsule of this product). The seeds contain not less than 65% of Polyunsaturated fatty acid as Linolenic Acid, out of a total fatty acid component of 86%. Gamma Linolenic (GLA) comprises majority of the balance.

EVE 500 is an excellent natural source of cis Gamma Linolenic Acid. GLA is the last precursor to a group of hormone like compounds called prostaglandins that control cell growth, cell regeneration, skin condition, menstrual cycle and blood pressure.

EVE 500 supplies the biologically active cis Linoleic Acid for normal metabolism and is an excellent dietary source of GLA.

EVE 500 with its high natural content of GLA is used to treat symptoms of Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) or Pre-Menstrual Tension (PMT) such as irritability, headaches, breast tenderness and heaviness. It is also used as a good natural way or treating anxiety many times associated with PMT/ PMS.

EVE 500 is also the choice product particularly for dry and devitalized skin due to the fact that it maintains skin elasticity. EVE 500 presents moisturizing, nourishing and restructuring properties due to its high content in unsaturated fatty acids. It thus has anti-ageing properties.

Evening Primrose Oil contains Gamma Linolenic Acid 10%. Gamma Linolenic Acid is a building block for prostaglandis which regulate the immune system, metabolism, cell growth and prevent pre-menstrual syndrome, best choice for women going through menopause, fibrocystic breast, arthritis, eczema, multiple sclerosis and hypertension.
