Quest Evening Primrose Oil

Evening primrose oil (EPO) is high in gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), which may suppress inflammation through its metabolism to dihomo-gamma-linolenic acid (DGLA), which, in turn, can competitively inhibit the pro-inflammatory 2-series prostaglandins and 4-series leukotirenes. The incorporation of GLA and its metabolites in cell membranes may also play a role in the possible anti-inflammatory, antithrombotic, antiatherogenic, and antiproliferative actions of EPO.

Gamma-lineolenic acid (GLA), supplied in the form of evening primrose oil, has been studied for many years for its possible effects in arthritis and other inflammatory processes. In a randomized double-blind placebo-controlled study of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) sufferers, those receiving 1.4 grams of GLA daily experienced significant relief. GLA reduced the number of tender joints 36% and the swollen joint count by 28%. Those on placebo experienced no significant improvement or declined in condition.
