Aids in the production of fertile quality cervical mucus


Evening Primrose Oil (EPO) is a favorite fertility supplement used by woman trying to conceive as it is reputed to improve the quality & quantity of fertile cervical mucus as well acting to support fertility and hormonal balance.

For women who are trying-to-conceive, the key benefit of Evening Primrose Oil is that it may increase the quality of cervical mucus, making the mucus a more fertile medium for sperm. One of the purposes of cervical mucus during the fertile period before ovulation is to allow sperm to move freely through the cervix. When a woman ovulates, there should be an increase in cervical mucus, as well as a change in mucus texture. Fertile cervical mucus is more “stretchable” and slippery (you will often hear it compared to “egg-white”). The presence of fertile cervical mucus around the time a woman ovulates is key to fertility.The lubricant Pre-Seed (or Preseed) also offers a sperm-friendly transport medium that mimics natural body secretions and cervical fluids.

Historically considered a medicinal “cure-all”, evening primrose oil is one of the more popular herbal supplements for female hormonal balance and fertility via prostaglandin metabolism. It also offers a wide array of purported benefits, including treating ailments such as  breast pain, hot flashes, premenstrual symptoms (PMS), skin disorders, rheumatoid arthritis, and hormonal imbalance.

How it Works
Evening Primrose Oil provides the Omega-6 fatty acid GLA (Gamma Linolenic Acid). GLA is a fatty acid that the body converts into the hormone-like substances called prostaglandins, which have been shown to promote female hormonal balance and may support a wide range of bodily functions, including providing moisture for dry mucus membranes. Despite the name “fatty acid” they will not cause weight gain but rather help with proper metablism. With a significant role in the structure of every cell and regulation of cellular function, it is apparent that a lack of omega-6 metabolites such as GLA can adversely affect every cell and organ of the body. It is therefore not surprising that a deficiency in GLA may lead to abnormalities in the skin, reproductive system, cardiovascular system, immune system, inflammatory mechanisms and nervous system. In fact, every system in the body is susceptible to the negative effects of a deficiency. Recent research has again confirmed the benefit of GLA rich supplements for the maintenance of a well balanced hormonal system, a symptom-free menstrual cycle and healthy, glowing skin.

Not all Evening Primrose Oils are Created Equally
The patented Evening Primrose plant, Rigel, used in the production of Efamol produces oil with 33% more GLA in it than the plants used by any other manufacturers. In addition, and the way the oil is extracted ensures the natural antioxidants found in the evening primrose seeds are preserved giving the oil a cleaner rich golden colour and natural antioxidant protection. Efamol has been researching essental fatty acids for over 30 years and has been responsible for over 90% of all the published studies on the benefits of evening primrose oil and gamma linolenic acid. Efamol delivers the highest level of bioactively available GLA available – some 33% more than other brands.

Designed for use in the first half of the monthly cycle up to ovulation. Begin taking on the first day of menstrual bleeding and continue taking 2-3  capsules daily until you have established ovulation has taken place.

Discontinue use following ovulation and switch to Flax Seed Oil if you wish to continue enjoying the same general health promoting benefits that fatty acids provide.

High doses of evening primrose oil may increase the risk seizures in schizophrenic patients receiving phenothiazine and related epilepsy medications, which in themselves can precipitate epilepsy.
