Evening Primrose Oil (EPO) is supplement that promotes healthy breast tissue and some believe it can help with breast growth. EPO has a high concentration of gamma-linoleic acid (GLA) which helps to balance hormones as well as improve circulation all of which are beneficial to NBE. Many NBE’ers take EPO as part of their NBE routine or use EPO as a base for their breast massage cream/boobie batter.
While EPO is generally added to boost a NBE routine, some women have reported positive effects on their breasts while taking EPO by itself. Do a search on Evening Primrose Oil + Breast Enhancement and you will find a number of women who experienced breast firmness and/or growth as a result of taking EPO for an unrelated issue (ie acne).
EPO not only has the benefit of potential breast growth but it also has a number of other benefits including:
- Healthy nails, scalp and hair
- treatment for skin issues (ie acne, rosacea and eczema)
- relieves PMS and menopause symptoms
- possible aid to female infertility
EPO supplements are fairly easy to find. You can get them online or locally at health food stores and most grocery stores. They even carry EPO in places like Wal-mart but when shopping for a bottle, be sure to get a high quality product. Try to get one that has a high percentage of GLA. Nature’s Way has 10% GLA which is very good as most brands generally have 8 – 9% GLA content.
When taking GLA, be sure to follow the manufacturer’s guidelines. Nature’s Day recommends 2-3 pills per day so about 2600-3900mg per day.
Evening Primrose Oil is generally well tolerated but some people might experience an upset stomach, nausea, or headaches. This is generally caused by taking too much. If taking a lesser dosage doesn’t help, you may want to find another source of GLA like borage oil.
