Evening primrose supplements and their benefits are today’s topic of discussion. What your skin is doing is often telling of what is happening within your body- and for these reasons, making note of what vitamins and minerals your body needs to function in a happy and healthy manner is key. Unfortunately and as much as we try our best, we don’t always get what we need through the foods we eat- here is where your local health food store comes clutch. Let’s dive in?

Derived from the evening primrose plant, this oil contains linolenic acid, gamma-linolenic acid, and vitamin E. Linolenic and gamma-linolenic acids are essential fatty acids and are ‘essential’ because they are necessary for the health, growth, and development of our bodies, but cannot be produced within our bodies- aka they need to be acquired through your diet. Together, they promote the healthy growth of skin, hair, and nails, and reduce inflammation. Vitamin E builds a strong immune system, healthy skin, and healthy eyes. They are also a wonderful antioxidant that protects our cells from damage. And that’s not all:

Recommended use: talk to your doctor/naturopath/health food store associate my guy. Every brand has a different dosage so do some research regarding what your optimal dosage amount would be and what brands would work best for you. But you know, we take our supplements daily.

Wishing y’all a love filled week ahead, and a glowing inside and outside! And remember, we’re not doctors…so don’t try to come for us.

Ble$$ up,

Janu & Nicole
