KittyCat previously asked me my views on EPO or Evening Primrose Oil.
Well, I am a firm advocate of taking evening primrose oil to relieve period pains. I found that by taking one a day, I would not suffer as badly each month, and if I did, then I’d pop 4 at a go, and the pain/cramps would go away.
I was not aware of its beauty benefits until later. Evening Primrose Oil has Omega 6, which is good for the skin and hair. Taking it regularly will help improve your skin texture and also slow down the aging process. Isn’t that what every woman wants? I cannot say for certain that taking Evening Primrose Oil has helped my skin, as I have been taking it for a while now, and am also taking other supplements besides.
There are many brands available in the market, but I take the one by Kordel’s in 1000mg doses. I take only 1 a day. Someone told me not to take too many as it can also lead to a higher cholestorol level. I’m not quite sure how true that is but I’m not going to risk it! Beauty cannot come at the expense of health!
The moral of the story is not to go overboard – one a day of EPO may help relieve period pains and give you better skin but if too much of it will give you high cholestorol then remember that everything in moderation works better than overdoing something good which then makes it bad.
