Best known for its benefits to the premenstrual cycle, primrose oil has become very popular for its benefits to improve cervical mucus. By improving the quality of cervical mucus, it offers a safer and more fertile environment for sperm.
Primrose oil is rich in essential fatty acids, including the Omega 6 fatty acids Linoleic and Gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). Omega 6 is essential for our bodies, but we don't produce it on our own. Omega 6 plays a crucial role in brain function, normal growth and development. GLA is converted in the body to prostaglandins, a type of enzymes shown to balance female reproductive hormones, including moisture regulation of mucous membranes.
Once considered the “King’s cure all,” this supplement is now one of the more popular supplements for women’s hormonal health. Best known for its alleviating premenstrual symptoms, breast pain, hot flashes, skin disorders and hormonal imbalances.
Although there is no specific proof, primrose oil is known to cause the uterus to contract so it is best to take this supplement from the first day of menstruation until ovulation, approximately 14 days. For optimal results use in combination with Prenatal Plus Omega 3 and Fertile CM.
