What is GLA?
GLA (gamma linolenic acid) is an omega-6 fatty acid that contributes to the creation of the hormone-like substance prostaglandin in the body. Low levels of prostaglandin are thought to lead to hormonal disorders such as PMS and menopausal symptoms. It can also lead to skin problems such as dryness, eczema, psoriasis and acne. Evening primrose oil is one of the main sources of GLA, which is the reason for its popularity.
GLA for the skin
Evening primrose oil is popular in skin care for impure and oily skin. Many people also use it for the skin's elasticity, firmness and moisture balance as well as for redness and irritation. You can take the evening primrose oil as tablets or capsules, or apply liquid evening primrose oil directly onto the skin.

GLA for hormonal balance
There is still too little research on GLA and its effects on our hormones, but some people with bad menopausal or PMS symptoms experience that their hormonal balance is affected when they use evening primrose oil as a supplement. For menopausal women, a daily supplement with evening primrose oil can help relieve problems with hot flashes.
Does evening primrose oil have side effects?
It is uncommon for evening primrose oil to have any side effects, but in some cases side effects such as abdominal pain, nausea, diarrhea and headache may occur. Follow the dosage instructions on the package to avoid any side effects.
