Primrose is a native American plant with yellow leaves that open during sunset and close during the day. The extract derived from the seeds of this plant is commonly used for manufacturing supplements.
Primrose seed extract has a ton of health benefits, including reducing symptoms of acne, easing eczema, and improving overall skin health.
1. Reduces Symptoms of Acne
Primrose contains a fatty acid called gamma-Linolenic acid (GLA) that helps your skin fight acne by reducing skin inflammation and the number of cells that cause lesions.
According to this study conducted in 2014, primrose helps relieve the pain and inflammation caused by cheilitis — a condition caused by the acne treatment drug isotretinoin.
Furthermore, another study states that supplements containing GLA reduce both inflammatory and noninflammatory acne lesions.
2. May Relieve Symptoms of Eczema
Although some scientists suggest that primrose should not be used by patients of eczema (an inflammatory skin condition), some countries recently approved it as a treatment for eczema.
Those countries have legalized primrose for eczema patients because it contains GLA, which as we mentioned earlier, reduces skin inflammation.
During this study, participants who were given primrose oil daily for 12 weeks experienced less acne, along with notable improvements in their overall skin condition.
3. Improves Overall Skin Health
According to a study conducted in 2015, oral primrose supplementation makes skin smooth and improves its moisture, firmness, fatigue resistance, and elasticity.
The same study also concludes that supplementing GLA is necessary for maintaining our ideal skin condition because our body cannot produce it on its own.
That is why doctors recommend primrose oil to keep your skin smooth and healthy.
4. Relieves Symptoms of PMS
During this study, researchers found out that primrose is highly effective at reducing several symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (PMS), including:
Furthermore, another study conducted in 2010 found out that a supplement containing vitamin E, vitamin B6, and primrose was effective in relieving PMS symptoms.
5. Minimizes Cyclical Breast Pain
If you suffer severe breast pain during your period, then taking primrose can help.
According to this study conducted in 2010, the GLA in primrose reduces inflammation and prostaglandins that cause cyclical breast pain.
Furthermore, the same study also concludes that taking primrose and vitamin E daily is one of, if not the most effective way to minimize cyclical breast pain.
Health Issues Associated With Primrose Deficiency
People who use primrose supplements regularly have a significantly lower risk of suffering from the following health issues:
- Breast pain
- Hot flashes
- Premenstrual syndrome (PMS)
So if you want to avoid the discomfort caused by the health issues mentioned above, then add a primrose supplement to your diet.
Daily Recommended Intake
The daily recommended intake (DRI) of primrose varies depending on the following factors:
- User’s age
- User’s health
- The condition the user is trying to treat
For instance, the DRI of primrose for women with breast pain is 3-4 grams.
