Evening Primrose with Black Currant Seed Oil provides a concentrated blend of Essential Fatty Acids (particularly GLA) from Evening Primrose and Black Currant Seed oils to gently support women through the menstrual cycle. Just like vitamins, there are certain fatty acids your body cannot produce, yet are essential for optimum health and therefore must be obtained through your diet or supplementation. Used traditionally in America and in Europe to support women's health, Evening Primrose and Black Currant oils contain high levels of Gamma- Linolenic Acid (GLA), an essential Omega-6 fatty acid, and an important precursor to hormone-like substances in the body called prostaglandins. Evening Primrose Oil has been shown to support GLA levels and help to alleviate the mood swings and physical discomfort associated with premenstrual syndrome (PMS) for some women. Since Evening Primrose and Black Currant oils, along with fatty acids in general, are quite unstable and are prone to oxidation, in order to preserve their benefits it is important to deliver them in a manner that reduces oxidation and instability. Accordingly, we have developed our liquid-filled softgel capsules to protect against the damaging effects of oxidation on potency. Our unique, protective softgels also avoid the additives present in ordinary softgel capsules. Our softgels are the perfect way to protect and enjoy the benefits of the delicate oils in Evening Primrose with Black Currant Seed Oil. These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.
Consume two to four capsules daily or as recommended by your physician. As with any dietary supplement, this product is most effective as part of a healthy diet and active lifestyle, along with a daily multi-vitamin-mineral formula.

Hot flashes are a thing of the past
A friend of mine bought this product for me when she saw how miserable i was with hot flashes.they came one right after the other both day and night! Also my eyes ran constantly and my skin was dry.I was flat out miserable! After taking primrose and black currant caps for a week the hot flashes almost completely disappeared and after a month my eyes stopped watering and after a few months I realized my skin looks way better! My friend is an angel! And I'm here to testify this stuff works!

I Was Skeptical That Such a Simple Product Could Help Me...
...but, I was at my wit's end dealing with intractable menstrual cramps, (they are as painful as when I suffered kidney stones). I decided to try this because the only supplements I've ever been able to tolerate are Andrew's & I suspect it is pretty common for customer's to check out all the other offerings after first experiencing his products! Once I started taking this daily, my symptoms improved to the point where I sometimes no longer get cramping and when I do, it's much more tolerable. This success is only reinforced by the fact that when I went without it for two months, my symptoms resumed in their entirety. You have nothing to lose by trying this product; at the least, it supplies needed nutrients & at best, it may change your life!

I got my life back!
First of all, let me just say that I consume about 30 of Andrew's vitamins daily and though they are all wonderful this one was a true life changer for me. Before I started taking this vitamin I would literally suffer from terrible PMS a week before my period and then I would suffer for another week with menstrual cramping, bloating, moodiness, and fatigue. I take this vitamin about 10 days before the onset of my period and my PMS is virtually GONE. Also, my periods are lighter and they don't last as long as they did before. All in all, I would say I have gained 9 to 10 days of my life back per month! I never imagined I would find anything that would help and most OBGYN's just "solve" the problem by putting females on the pill. I would not accept that and so my hunt for a natural remedy led me to Andrew. I will never be without this product and am so thankful for the wonderful results I've seen from taking it. Thank you Andrew for giving me my life back!!!

A little taste of heaven
I have only been on this for one week, but I have to say it was heaven sent. I can not tell you how much better I feel after taking this twice a day and if I am under a lot of stress that day I will take three if needed. I even got our daughter started on them just a couple of days ago. You can not go wrong with this product.
