Women tend to live longer and are on the whole, healthier than men. However, they visit the doctor twice as much. Why so?
One of the main reasons is menstruation. Even in the best of health, a woman may still have to put up with uncomfortable symptoms of PMS. Abdominal cramps, bloatedness, depression, increased anxiety and food cravings top the list.
Many women claim that evening primrose oil is a great help though, in lessening PMS woes. The secret to evening primrose oil’s effectiveness lies in its unique GLA (gamma linolenic acid) content, a kind of essential fatty acid that helps produce prostaglandins. These hormone-like substances are essential for the maintenance of a well-balanced hormonal system, as well as great skin.
