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:

  • Bloating
  • Irritability
  • Depression

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:

  • Acne
  • Eczema
  • 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.

We just completed a very large Homeopathic tablet order that required involvement from 4 different facilities. There was nobody else in the country that was willing to help us that we called until we found superior. First shipment came last week and we couldn’t be happier or more impressed with the team. Thank you Justine, Phil, Stephenie you are the best!

I was choosing between two companies to create a formulation, and it came down to their level of service, expertise and confidence in their ability to execute. After speaking to Phil, their lead guy who knows all things supplements and is very easy to communicate with, was enthusiastic and helped to create a strategy to see my vision through. The last thing you want is a transactional relationship in this industry, so whether you’re a first timer or a veteran, these guys know how to add value no matter what level you’re at. Highly recommend Superior and their team to get the job done.
When they say “Superior” they aren’t kidding. Of over 100 companies on our NSF list that we called, and over 20 that we talked to, Superior was the ONLY one that consistently answered their phones, worked incredibly diligently to problem solve and R&D an incredibly complex patented proprietary product, and consistently was two or three steps ahead of us, the landscape and their competitors. Looking forward to a long relationship Superior!
We’ve been using Superior for over 5 years. We came to them because our last manufacturer stopped making the capsule size I needed. I looked everywhere for a replacement. Luckily, I found Superior. They quoted me a fair price and sourced a hard to find ingredient quickly. In the 5 years we’ve had them make our product, which is a custom formulation, they have never delivered late once. Quality control is very high and I get constant updates from Phil our point person while it is being manufactured. I cannot recommend them enough.
Our previous manufacturer was 3 months late on a production and barely spoke with us. We have run many runs with Superior and as with all manufacturing, there was an order that was a little late because of poor crop growth. Not only did they warn us ahead of time they showed us the list of suppliers they were calling day and night to try to find replacement material. Best company ever!
Jake, Justine and Phil are just a few of the team members we have had the pleasure of working with at Superior. As a marketing agency working in the supplement industry, we work with many suppliers on behalf of our clients. I especially appreciate Superior Supplements Manufacturing because of their dedication to customer relationships. They go to extreme measures to ensure quality ingredients, fair pricing and great turn around times. The staff is also extremely knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this team.
