About this item
This product balances and maintains the omega-6 to omega-3 ratio and forms step 2 of Restore & Maintain protocol. EPA is a long-chain omega-3 fatty acid with several important roles in the body. EPA helps to maintain healthy cell signalling and brain function and it is also converted by the body into eicosanoids ? substances which support cardiovascular health, inflammatory response and normal immune function. Evening primrose oil is a rich source of the fatty acid GLA. GLA is an integral part of cell membranes, helping to keep them permeable for optimum brain function, as well as being a precursor to favourable eicosanoids. Cold-pressed and non-raffinated (extracted without the use of chemical solvents), our organic evening primrose oil is a botanical source of triterpenes (unlike generic evening primrose oil) ? free radical scavenging substances, which may help to support the immune system. Vitamin D3 contributes to the normal function of the immune system. Vitamin B5 contributes to the normal synthesis and metabolism of vitamin D, steroid hormones and some neurotransmitters. Vitamin B5 also contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue and supports normal mental performance. Vitamin E contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress.
