We often have pre-menopausal women experiencing the first symptoms of hot flashes go on Pure Form Omega® and have partial to full resolution of their symptoms. Why is this so? It was an unanticipated effect. Well a little diving into the science of menopause was quite revealing.
It turns out that physicians prescribed Evening Primrose Oil in the 1950’s and 60’s for hot flashes routinely. This was before artificial hormones were invented and know, unfortunately we now know that these artificial hormones were directly contributing to the epidemic of breast cancer we see and should no longer be used.1, 2
Evening Primrose Oil is loaded with gamma-linolenic acid, an Omega-6 with potent anti-inflammatory effects, which break the heat producing inflammatory cycle that becomes prevalent in menopause. It is also perfectly safe as it has no estrogen in it, so cannot cause proliferation of breast tissue so no cancer risk. Pure Form Omega® is rich in EPO, in fact it is the number 1 ingredient. It is also one of the purest sources as demonstrated by recent testing by Health Canada.
The second ingredient in Pure Form Omega® is flax seed oil. Now flax seed oil has something called lignins, important modulators of hormone metabolism.
So you can see that Pure Form Omega® isn’t just good for overall health and performance, it has implications in treating undesirable effects of aging that at least half our population will experience, all without the risk posed by artificial solutions.
