Designed to promote the production of fertile-quality cervical mucus
Evening Primrose Oil (EPO) is a favorite fertility aid among women. Trying-to-conceive women use evening primrose oil because it can help improve the quality of cervical mucus – or make the cervical mucus a more fertile medium for sperm.*
One of the purposes of cervical mucus during the fertile period before ovulation is to allow sperm to move freely through the cervix. When a woman ovulates, there should be an increase in cervical mucus, as well as a change in mucus texture. Fertile cervical mucus is more “stretchable” and slippery (you will often hear it compared to “egg-white”). The presence of fertile cervical mucus around the time a woman ovulates is key to fertility.
Formulated by fertility expert Dr. Amos Grunebaum, Evening Primrose Oil provides the Omega-6 fatty acid GLA (Gamma Linolenic Acid). GLA is a fatty acid that the body converts into the hormone-like substances called prostaglandins, which have been shown to promote female hormonal balance and may support a wide range of bodily functions, including providing moisture for dry mucus membranes. Vitamin E and the antioxidant selenium provide health benefits and may improve hormonal balance for trying to conceive women.
