    The basics

    EPO, derived from the seeds of the North American native plant, boasts a rich profile of the omega-6 fatty acids gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). Unlike other omega-6 fatty acids, GLA and ALA are acclaimed for their anti-inflammatory properties. Our supplement encapsulates these benefits with a robust 1000mg of starflower oil, ensuring a 22% GLA content.

    The need to know

    What are the benefits?

    Skin and hormone balance

    • Helps to reduce PMS symptoms
    • Heart health and anti-inflammatory omega 6
    • Good for troublesome skin

    The Science

    EPO addresses PMS symptoms by potentially correcting a deficiency in essential fatty acids linked to prolactin sensitivity, a significant trigger for PMS symptoms. GLA in EPO promotes the production of prostaglandin E1, a compound that may inhibit the adverse effects of prolactin. Apart from regulating PMS, this prostaglandin also acts as an anti-inflammatory agent in the body, potentially assisting conditions like eczema or cheilitis.

    Combining GLA with high-strength DHA + EPA (omega-3) may further support skin health, normalising sebum viscosity and fortifying the skin's lipid barrier, which is crucial for countering hormonal acne.

    How will I know its working?

    Users may notice a decrease in symptoms associated with PMS, such as reduced breast pain, mood swings, or bloating. Furthermore, improvements in skin conditions, like reduced acne and less skin dryness, can also serve as indicators of the supplement's efficacy.

    When to take it?

    Take 1 capsule daily with food and water, unless specified otherwise on the sachet.

    For acne combine with a high strength omega-3.
