Efamol Evening Primrose Oil is unique. The oil used is carefully extracted from a specially cultivated Rigel Evening Primrose, the seeds of which contain up to 33% more GLA than other Evening Primrose Oils†. Efamol carefully manages each step of the oil extraction process to ensure that the oil stays in the same form as in the seed, thus retaining its natural properties.
At Efamol, quality and purity are key values. Our unique Rigel Evening Primrose is grown to our specification in the Netherlands and New Zealand by the same growers we have used for the last 40 years.
This unique oil is tested to ensure it contains the GLA stated and has been successfully used in numerous scientific trials in humans.
†Efamol Evening Primrose Oil contains 115mg of GLA per 1000mg capsule. A survey of standard Evening Primrose Oil available on the high street shows an average GLA content of 8.3mg per 1000mg. The difference between these two figures is 38.5%. Allowing for natural variations of GLA we have rounded this down to 33%.
