Premenstrual syndrome (PMS):
Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) is a collection of physical, psychological, and emotional symptoms related to a woman’s menstrual cycle. These symptoms include Depression, Irritability, Fluid retention, Breast pain, and tenderness. In Women with Premenstrual syndrome, the conversion of Linoleic acid to Gamma-linolenic acid is impaired. Thus, Gamma-linolenic acid in Evening Primrose Oil is used for relieving Premenstrual syndrome.
Menopausal symptoms are the symptoms that appear after the cessation of the menstrual cycle. These symptoms include Hot flushes, night sweats, and mood swings.
Hot Flashes are caused due to Hormonal changes during Menopause. Levels of Estrogen diminish during Menopause. Diminished levels of Estrogen have a direct effect on the Hypothalamus, which is known as Body’s thermostat. Prostaglandin and related compounds result in increasing the pumping rate of the heart, and blood vessels in the skin dilate and circulate more blood to radiate off the heat. Sweat glands release sweat to cool the body. Gamma-Linolenic acid, a component of Evening primrose oil is the precursor of Prostaglandin. Thus, Evening Primrose helps in relieving hot flashes in Menopausal women.
