If you’re a woman and looking at adding supplements into your daily life but unsure where to start, let me talk to you about why I take Efamol® Pure Evening Primrose Oil every day without fail…
When I hit my thirties I found an inner desire to improve my well being and health. I’m not particularly unhealthy but I wouldn’t say I’m hugely healthy either. I used to go to the gym three times a week which got sidelined when I had my son (2 years ago) as I used all my energy running around after him instead. And as much as working out used to help me feel calm, healthy and strong…well, night feeds, a crying baby and the other newborn bits slowly eroded my gym pattern until it was completely gone. On top of that I like food, a lot. But not always the healthy kind. Nothing appeals to me about a salad – I’d rather have a pizza any day of the week. Or rather, every day of the week.
So you see, while I’m not unfit, and I do eat my 5-a-day, I also work from home so I’m sitting down a lot but I often feel sluggish, get bad breakouts on my skin and a general lethargy. I’ve tried to drink more water (I hate the taste) I try to make myself fancy a salad for lunch (loathingly) and I try to walk more than use the car (sometimes.) But I still felt like something wasn’t ‘clicking’ with my body and well being. So as I entered my thirties I decided to stop fighting all the recommendations of my slightly older friends and family, and look into supplements.
When I started researching which supplements would fit my lifestyle and tick the right boxes for me, I fell down an internet rabbit hole. There are SO many supplements for SO many things. It’s really hard to know where to start isn’t it? Which is why I’m hoping that if you’re looking into Evening Primrose Oil, you’ll find my experience useful in your decision making.
I started taking Evening Primrose Oil before the summer and have now taken it everyday without fail for six months. I’m currently using the Efamol® Pure Evening Primrose Oil which is available from Boots for only £10 and each pot will last you approximately a month. So it’s less than 34p per day – not bad right? I take it in the mornings and I take the capsule whole with a glass of water. That’s all you do…It always reminds me of watering a plant actually, and I quite like that analogy of watering my body with my morning supplements and water!
Why did I start taking Evening Primrose Oil?
My reasons behind starting Efamol® were two fold – I’ve heard a lot of my friends recommend the use of Pure Evening Primrose Oil for women. The other reason was that Evening Primrose Oil is supposed to help with the appearance of the skin. And I’m not getting any younger folks! So for less than 34p a day – what did I have to lose?
How long did it take for me to see results?
I was anticipating a good few weeks to notice anything, which is about fair. And I started to notice a difference with how my skin looked after about 4-6 weeks.
What results did Efamol have on my skin?
After taking daily for a month, spending time in the sun, relaxing and enjoying my holiday, I noticed that my skin just looked…smoother. And then I realised that it had actually been looking better for about a month and while the transition had been gradual, by week 6 my skin felt smoother. This has continued and my skin now looks smoother in general, especially across my cheeks and because the overall texture looks better, I feel that things I otherwise dislike (large pores etc) just look better too. It has made a big difference to my skin confidence too.
How Does Efamol Do this?
Efamol® is a Pure version of Evening Primrose Oil that is harvested from a unique plant seed called Rigel which produces 33% more GLA. It’s therefore a higher strength version to take. And Rigel is unique to Efamol – you won’t find it in other versions of EPO. Efamol also contains Vitamin E which helps to protect cells from oxidative stress.
Six Months In – What Are My Thoughts?
I can say with absolutely certainty that I’ll continue taking Efamol. I was gifted my initial tub but have repurchased twice myself since because I’m so impressed with how it’s working for me. Alongside a balanced diet and overall trying to live a more ‘healthy’ lifestyle, I’ve noticed that Efamol has quickly become something I credit to my increased happiness with my appearance. As someone who’s busy all the time Evening Primrose Oil has slotted into my daily life without any problems or drawbacks – I literally couldn’t list a single con for taking it. It’s not expensive and it’s transformed the appearance of my skin.
Efamol® Evening Primrose Oil is available in two sizes, 30 x 1000mg capsules, £9.99 and 90 x 500mg capsules, £12.99.
I would recommend Efamol® Evening Primrose Oil to any woman who’s even remotely curious about what it can offer her.
