In almost every nutrition and herbal store, evening primrose oil is marketed as a treatment for a wide range of medical illnesses. The major ingredient in primrose oil is omega 6 fatty acid (gamma linolenic acid). The major use of primrose is in the use of disorders where the defect is metabolic or biochemical. Despite its availability for over 2 decades, there is very little scientific data to back up any of the claims made by the vendors of the product.

Primrose oil is also sold under different brand names which include fever plant, night willow herb, onogra vulgaris, sun drop and la belle de nuit.

Uses based on tradition or theory

Primrose oil has been used for many years for numerous conditions and each year different medical conditions are added to the list. The majority of the claims are based more on folk lore rather than any scientific claims.

Because there are many serious medical disorders which are touted to be cured by primrose oil, one should always seek a physician's advice before embarking to use a supplement without any studies showing its medical benefits

The medical disorders for which primrose oil is being used for include

- treatment of alcoholism

- reversal of coronary artery disease

- acne, psoriasis

- Inflammatory bowel disease

- Neuropathies

- Diabetes

- High cholesterol

- Kidney stones

- Multiple sclerosis

- Hepatitis

- Prevention of preterm delivery

- Melanoma

- Pain

- Depression

- Collagen vascular disorders

- Renal failure

- Cough

- Weight loss

- Promote wound healing.

It indeed would be a miracle supplement if it could cure all these disorders. More than likely it has the same curative ability as drinking urine.
