Evening Primrose Oil contains gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). GLA helps to inhibit the body's production of chemicals that cause inflammation. The body can make GLA through conversion of linoleic acid found in fat in meat and vegetable oils such as safflower. Disease, low thyroid function, infection and inadequate amounts of certain nutrients can interfere with this conversion. Evening Primrose Oil circumvents conversion problems leading to a more predictable response.
Pets that suffer from arthritis usually experience joint pain due to swelling. Anti-inflammatory agents, such as Evening Primrose Oil may help relieve the swelling, thereby minimizing the pain.
Evening Primrose Oil has long been used in treating digestive tract disorders and other ailments like IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) and rheumatoid arthritis.
Evening Primrose Oil is useful in the treatment of atopy (allergies to inhaled substances such as pollens and molds). Pets with atopy are very itchy. The areas most affected are the face, paws, lower legs, groin and less often, the ears and eyes.
Evening Primrose Oil may benefit pets with dry, dull hair coats, and dry, flaky skin. Since cats do not convert linoleic acid into GLA, supplementation with Evening Primrose Oil may be helpful in overcoming coat and skin problems in cats. It is also known for its stabilizing effect on hormone imbalances.
Evening Primrose Oil and Cold Water Fish Oil can be used together to improve certain conditions such as Atopy (allergies) and arthritis.
