Benefits of Evening Primrose Oil

 

Evening primrose oil comes from the evening primrose wildflower, the actual oil is sourced from the flower’s seeds. It contains gamma-linolenic acid as well as linoleic acid, both are omega 6 fatty acids. (Ehrlich, 2015) Evening primrose oil is useful in treating symptoms of premenstrual syndrome, conditions related to arthritis, and eczema. (Ehrlich, 2015) It can also be helpful when it comes to menopausal symptoms. Evening primrose oil may also be beneficial in obtaining clear skin and overall skin health by clearing up acne. (McDermott, 2017) Skin inflammation and the number of skin cells that cause lesions may be reduced due to the gamma linolenic acid in the oil. (McDermott, 2017).

Evening Primrose Oil by Ortho Molecular products is beneficial in terms of joint and muscle support as well as promoting healthy skin. The oil is organically grown and delivers 1300 milligrams of oil in each capsule. It comes in a 90 count as well as 180 count bottles.

To Our Community

Acupuncture Atlanta is committed to providing quality care and helping you stay healthy in this environment defined by a new normal. Acupuncture at its core is a preventative modality and our practitioners are here to work with you and design a treatment plan that is suitable for your specific needs.

The clinic resumed treatments on May 7th with limited hours and new guidelines, and we are slowly working towards full-time hours. Please check the Book Appointment page for available days and time slots, or call us. 

We will also be taking extra protective measures to ensure the safety of our patients and staff:

·      All visitors musk wear a mask entering the building, checking in and waiting in the lobby. No exceptions.

·      We are providing disinfectant wipes and hand sanitizers for all guests to use in several areas.

·      Each treatment room has a HEPA filter with a built-in UV-C air sanitizer (also used in hospital settings.)

·      Practitioners will wear protective masks and/or gloves.

·      Use of disposable paper sheets or change out sheets in between each patient.

·      Treatment tables and other surfaces will be sanitized after each patient.

·      We try to minimize the number of people waiting in the front lobby - your practitioner may ask you to wait in the car until the room is ready.

Please check your appointment confirmations for specific instructions. Our commitment to keeping everyone safe and healthy is our top priority.
