Q. Why Does Cold Pressing Give The Highest Quality Evening Primrose Oil ?

Cold pressing involves extraction by purely mechanical means and at low temperatures, protecting the chemical composition of the oil (its purity) and thereby maximising its potency.
Q. Why Is Evening Primrose Oil the Preferred Source of GLA ?

Q. What Are The Traditional Uses for Evening Primrose Oil ?
A. The plant and root of the evening primrose were used by Native Americans to treat several medical conditions. However the use of the oil from the seeds of the evening primrose plant is relatively recent and is down to the high level of gamma linolenic acid in the oil.
