NOW Super Primrose Oil has naturally occurring Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA), an Omega-6 fatty acid also found in Borage and Black Currant Seed Oils. Although the body can synthesize GLA from other dietary fats, it can be more efficiently utilized for bodily functions when consumed in its preformed state. By supporting the body's healthy immune system responses, GLA may help to maintain normal skin barrier function, as well as a healthy vascular system. It may also be used as nutritional support for mild discomfort associated with PMS.

I got this product for my wife because of her severe cramps. After reading the reviews I bought Primrose. She just told me this is the first time she never had cramps at this time of the month. I think that is a great testimony.
Definitely potent - but beware
Definitely potent - but beware
I don't know how to rate this, because on one hand it is effective, but on the other hand the effects were horribly adverse for me. I started taking EPO because I had problems that I figured were of a hormonal nature (acne, mood swings etc. that worsened with PMS but never really got better no matter what phase in my cycle I was in). I had read that EPO has been a miracle cure for many especially for acne, so it seemed like it was worth a shot. Instead of relief, what I got was a horrible, horrible depression, worsened acne and stomach issues (bloating, gas, diarrhea). Within two days I was incredibly down, after a week dangerously so. That is when I realized the connection and stopped taking the supplement immediately, and on the following day I was already feeling better with mood symptoms gone completely within the next few days. My stomach also got better after a few days. I'm still battling the acne, EPO seemed to leave a long-lasting effect on my hormonal balance. I can only hope time will take care of that (hopefully sooner rather than later). For some people with hormone-related issues EPO does good. Perhaps my hormonal problems are of an opposite nature, which is why they got worse. I researched it afterwards and found out that many women have had severe depressive symptoms after taking it. I won't tell anyone to not try it, but urge everyone to be aware of the risks and monitor themselves when starting out.

Not for me

Took this for more than 1 month and then gave up. I did't experienced any improvement in my PMS syndrome and, unfortunately, I had a lot of new cystic pimples that I didn't know how to get rid off. One thing that really works for me and PMS is raspberry (leaf or extract). HTH.
