All of the Source Naturals products seem to be very good. I have been using the Evening Primrose Oil in connection with hair loss related to a thyroid disorder. It seems to be helping.
Although I'm taking an herbal supplement for my hypothyroid symptoms (with my endocrinologist's approval) I still have trouble with thinning hair, eyebrows and eyelashes; after reading several articles on the benefits of taking EPO I selected Source Naturals on the suggestion of a thyroid information website; in the three months I've been taking EPO my eyelashes look fuller, my eyebrows are filling in and my hair feels thicker, even keloid acne scars I've had for years feel softer; I havent't experienced any adverse effects, and, despite their size they are not hard to swallow!
Fantastic EPO supplement

I take 2 EPO capsules daily for a few reasons - to help with PMS and to help my skin. For PMS I would get quite bad cramps for days and days, as well as tender breasts. In taking this supplement it reduces PMS symptoms so much that I don't even get any cramps or tenderness AT ALL if I consistently take this daily. For skin, I battle with acne, and I do notice that my skin feels more moisturizer or 'supple' in taking these, and perhaps a reduction in hormonal acne. I like this brand because each capsule has 1350mg of EPO compared to my previous brand I was using with only 1000mg. I do notice that these have more of a 'smell' in the container, but no adverse effects when taken.

The first few times I took it, I had rash reactions on my arms and maybe other areas. I was afraid I cannot take this. I stopped for a day or two and tried again. But after taking it for a few more times, the rash reaction stops. So maybe my body have to get used to this. I had taken EPO before (other brands), with no issue. So I am thinking perhaps it is over 1000mg is too much for me. Or it could be the different ingredients (fillers). Next time, i will get under 1000mg to try.
glowing skin and better joint movement
