- Pure Encapsulations E.P.O. (evening primrose oil) is cold-pressed and produced without the use of any solvents. Used for centuries as nutritional support for a wide range of physiological functions, several studies have indicated that E.P.O. may help support the look and feel of healthy skin.
- A clinical trial reported that E.P.O. supported healthy skin through a modulation of IFN-gamma. Another study revealed that E.P.O. promoted skin health and led to a more favorable shift in eicosanoid metabolism. Other studies suggest that E.P.O. may support healthy lipid metabolism and may provide oxidative protection by promoting glutathione reductase and transferase activities.
- A clinical trial reported that GLA in combination with EPA/DHA significantly promoted healthy cardiovascular function in women. Additionally, E.P.O. may potentially be supportive of premenstrual comfort.‡

My acupuncturist recommended Pure Encapsulations EPO over 10 years ago and I continue to faithfully take it because it helps me to feel better on a daily basis. During those times when I didn't reorder on a timely basis, and had to go without, I could tell the difference in how I felt.
Seems to be working ok. I’m not seeing much of a difference between the Nature Valley brand I was using before.
Excellent service, excellent product. Instead of 12 to 20 hot flashes a day and night sweats, I can now say that this problem is under control and a good night sleep is refreshing.
I've been drinking this supplement I feel great.
I have found this gives me the results I want in an estrogen replacement .. just like oil in your car .. we need estrogen as we get older..
