Evening Primrose~  Oenothera biennis

Evening Primrose oil (EPO) is rich in vitamin E and (GLA) Gamma linolenic acid, an essential fatty acid. Essential fatty acids are not produced in our own bodies and have to be obtained through diet. Essential fatty acids support our physiological functions, and are important for overall health. EPO can be taken to help assist the body with many conditions, an especially interesting fact i came across is that EPO is good to use when trying to conceive because it can aid in the production of fertile cervical fluid!
