I have horrible arthritis. It has been so bad lately that it has woken me up in the middle of the night. As I hate to take even Ibuprofen I needed another option. I did some research and decided to try Nature’s Bounty Evening Primrose Oil a try.

Nature’s Bounty Evening Primrose Oil has many uses. One, it’s an all natural anti-inflammatory, so my pain and swelling has been reduced dramatically. Two, it helps with my dry skin.

 Evening primrose oil rejuvenates dry skin, moisturizes and protects against environmental damage.  It treats and heals tight, cracked skin and makes it feel smooth and soft.

Amazing. Evening Primrose Oil comes in both gelcaps and drops. I’ve been taking the gelcaps, so I can only speak for those, however. I’ve noticed dramatic results with Nature’s Bounty Evening Primrose Oil. I take them orally, when my inflammation is really bad. Yet for the gelcaps and dry skin relief, you can just break open the gelcap and mix with your moisturizer. The results are divine.

Other uses of evening primrose oil include:

Evening primrose oil (EPO) comes from the seed of the evening primrose plant and  is great for skin disorders such as eczema, psoriasis and acne. EPO is used in  pregnancy for preventing preeclampsia, starting and shortening labor and  preventing late deliveries. Women use evening primrose oil to fight PMS, breast  pain, endometriosis, symptoms of menopause and hot flashes.

I’m not a doctor, so I’m by no means telling you to run out and buy Evening Primrose Oil to be your cure all. I’m just giving you my honest opinion. I’m a huge fan of the effects of Evening Primrose Oil with inflammation and dry skin. Definitely make sure you consult your doctor before taking any supplements.
