Welcome to EarthTurns
Douglas Labs Prim Royal Capliques contain 500 mg of oil of organic, cold-pressed evening primrose oil providing 40 mg of the nutritionally important gamma linolenic acid (GLA) and 350 mg of the essential fatty acid, linoleic acid. These liquid filled two piece capsules are not made from gelatin, making this product suitable for vegetarians.
Diets in developed countries are often rich in animal products which deliver large amounts of saturated fatty acids and the polyunsaturated arachidonic acid (20:4 omega-6). Intakes of the essential linoleic acid (18:2 omega-6) can be low in people who do not regularly consume vegetable oils in their diets. Arachidonic acid is a precursor for the potentially undesired 2-series prostaglandins. Although gamma-linolenic acid is a precursor of arachidonic acid, higher levels of dietary GLA actually compete with arachidonic acid, and may help downregulate the formation of excessive levels of 2-series prostaglandins and other immune mediators. Evening primrose oil is recognized as an excellent source of both GLA as well as the essential linoleic acid. Therefore, regular supplementation with evening primrose oil may be beneficial for people consuming diets high in animal foods and low in unprocessed vegetable oils.
Prim Royal may be a useful dietary supplement for those who wish to increase their intake of gamma linolenic acid and linoleic acid.
