A superwoman should learn to look after and maintain a healthy body.

The modern woman plays more than one role on a daily basis – wife, mother, caregiver for the family, businesswoman, or even employee. A woman is more than the queen of her household. She strives to be perfect in all areas of her life, but usually overlook taking care of herself.

Ladies, performing multiple roles can take up more energy than we have, so we need a healthy body and adequate nutrients to keep us moving. A superwoman should learn to look after and maintain a healthy body.

Healthy eating habits, sufficient physical activities, and healthy stress levels work together for better health. Taking suitable supplements can further enhance and maintain health and wellness.

Evening Primrose Oil

The evening primrose plant (Oenothera biennis) originates from North America and is commonly called The King’s Cure-All. It has been used by herbalists for centuries.

Evening primrose oil is extracted from the seeds which contain two essential fatty acids, gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) and linoleic acid (LA). GLA is an essential fatty acid the body cannot produce, and must be supplied from a diet or supplements.

Specifically, GLA acts as a precursor to prostaglandins that help regulate many body functions including:

 • Women’s hormonal balance – Reduces symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (PMS), eases menopause symptoms, relieves hormonal acne by stimulate skin growth, and aids in healing.

 • Healthy skin – Reduces inflammation, strengthens the components in the outer skin layer, and restores skin moisture.

 • Others – Improves symptoms of nerve damage (neuropathy).

Vitamin E

Vitamin E is the major lipid-soluble component in the cell antioxidant defence system, and is exclusively obtained from our diet. It has numerous important roles within the body because of its antioxidant activity. It prevents the damage of oxidative stress, which can result in premature ageing.

Apart from antioxidant properties, Vitamin E also helps moisturise the skin. More importantly, it contains powerful anti-inflammatory action, thereby keeping the skin in good condition. A combination with evening primrose oil helps enhance its skin health benefits.

Supply the nutrients your body needs to maintain your role as a superwoman. Be a healthy superwoman with the supplementation of a combination of evening primrose oil and vitamin E.
