Evening Primrose Oil contains essential fatty acids and has very high levels of "gamma-linolenic acid" (GLA), also known as "omega-6". The oil contains up to 15% gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) and 70% linolenic acid, which your body turns into GLA. The body eventually converts GLA into prostaglandins - hormones necessary for a number of important functions.
