23. Evening Primerose

This concerns oils from evening primerose. I sometimes see ads that claim that these oils are good for AD treatment. However, primerose contains gamma-linolenic acid, which is synthesized from linoleic acid, a type of omega 6 unsaturated fatty acid, This substance leads to arachidonic acid production, and thus evening primerose is not good for people with allergies. Evening primerose was first sold in England, and is still sold globally. If you search on the Internet, you can find many opinions saying that it is good for AD. However, you don’t need to go out of your way and actually buy it since it could lead to worsened AD symptoms. If you are going to spend money, spend it on something you know will work.

This could also worsen acne. I’ve seen a woman in her 30’s who suddenly started breaking out. As I examined her, I found out that she was using evening primerose oil because of menstrual problems. When she stopped taking it, her acne was gone within a week.

There have also been reports of epilepsy getting worse due to evening primerose use. People who get convulsions should not take this.
