ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 02:54 PM) I'm torn big time with the start we have had this season. I hate seeing the Jets lose but they almost never have one of the worst records to have the best chance of picking up a higher potential franchise qb. Like the V outs did with many
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 02:54 PM) With Manning being injured one year and they get Luck
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 02:55 PM) The Jets win just enough games in bad seasons to not get one of the highest draft picks
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 04:43 PM) I'm not a college guy but I haven't heard of a QB coming out this year that's worth tanking a season for.
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 11:16 PM) 4 hours to watch a 6-6 game
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 11:16 PM) wtf was that

The Native americans have been enjoying the benefits of Evening Primrose Oil for years.

Author: Megan Stansfield

Evening primrose is an indigenous plant to North America. The flowers have a strong, sweet scent, and only bloom at night during the months of June through October. Evening primrose has been used for hundreds of years to treat various ailments of the skin and muscular system. Several Native American tribes discovered that the entire plant is edible, and could be usedas a painkiller in addition to everyday consumption. In Europe it is a proven treatment for PMS.

The bark and leaves of evening primrose are said to have astringent and sedative properties. It has been proven to be effective treatment inregards to gastro-intestinal disorders, asthma and chronic or whooping coughs. Evening primrose is rich in amino acids and essential amino acids such as omega 6. Essential fatty acids magnetize oxygen as well as produce electrical currents.

Once in the body amino acids and essential amino acids are transformed in to hormone-like substances called prostaglandins, which condenseallergic response and inflammation. Existence without essential fatty acids is impossible because they are vital to the electrical reactions of cells. Essentialfatty acids carry vitamins, enhance metabolism and transport oxygen to the tissues.

They are indispensable to the adrenalglands, brain cells, retinas, sensory organs, synapses and testes. Essential fatty acids act as solvents to eliminate hardened fat inside the human body. They are also involved ingenerating the electric currents that maintain regular heartbeats, regulating chromosome stability and will even help with weight loss.

Here is a list of major constituents found in evening primrose:Alanine (0.5%), arginine (1.5%), aspartic acid (1.2%),beta-sitosterol (1.2-2.5%), calcium (1.3-1.8%), cellulose(27%), gamma-linolenic acid (0.5-10%), glutamic acid (2.7%),glycine (1%), fat (15-32%), fiber (43%), histidine (0.4%),isoleucine (0.5%), leucine (1%), lignin (16%), linoleic acid(12-22%), lysine (0.3%), methionine (0.6%), phenylalanine(0.7%), proline (0.6%), protein (15-17%), serine (0.9%)threonine (0.4%), tryptophan (up to 1.6%), tyrosine (0.4%),valine (up to 0.8%) and other lesser constituents.

Gamma linolenic acid is a polyunsaturated fatty acid. Gammalinolenic acid (or GLA) aids the body to manufacture energy,and it also helps to form parts of the structural fats that encompass bone marrow, the brain, cell membranes and muscles.Gamma linolenic acid is transformed by the body intoprostaglandins. Prostaglandins help the body because of their anti-inflammatory properties. Prostaglandins can also act like a blood thinner and blood vessel dilator.

They are hormone-like substances produced in the body's tissues. Prostaglandin deficiency can result in disruption of the nerve impulse transmission, increase blood clotting time,inflammation and weaken immune response. Evening primrose oilwith a high concentration of gamma linolenic acid is favorablefor ailments related to essential fatty acid deficiency and theinability to metabolize essential fatty acids.

Evening primrose oil is beneficial in the treatment of arteriosclerosis, lowering blood cholesterol levels, asthma,allergies, PMS, headaches, rheumatoid arthritis, skinirritation, rashes, anxiety, water retention, breast soreness,depression, coughs, irritability, and the prevention of benignprostatic hypertrophy. It can also act as a stimulant for thedigestive system, liver and spleen. Evening primrose oil has also been indispensable in the treatment of acne, brittle nails, eczema, hyperactivity,multiple sclerosis, peripheral neuropathy and alcohol relatedliver damage.

There are other conditions where evening primroseis currently being tested for effectiveness, including breast cancer, heart disease, high cholesterol, attentiondeficit/hyperactivity disorder, stomach ulcers and inflammatory bowel disease. Scientists have said that the studies on evening primrose have been promising, however there is not enough conclusive data available at this time.

People with seizure disorders shouldonly use omega-6 supplements of any kind, under the care and supervision of a licensed medical doctor, because omega-6including gamma linolenic acid has had reports of inducingseizures in seizure-vulnerable persons. When purchasing evening primrose oil it is important that the company states the percentages of gamma linolenic acid as wellas the percentage of linoleic acid.

Most quality oils will have between 7-10% GLA and 40-75% LA (the higher the percentages thebetter). If the company you are ordering the evening primroseoil does not list the GLA or LA content with their product itis advised to call them and get the percentage information onthe 2 major constituent levels in their evening primrose oil. The best evening primrose contains 10.3% gamma linolenic acidand 75% linoleic acid, available as carrier oil.

Evening primrose can be used all over the body. Use it as a base toblend a therapeutic mix of essential oils for your specificailment or as facial and body treatment to combat acne, dry,scared, mature, discolored and irritated skin. Of course it canalso be used alone to produce beneficial therapeutic action. Evening primrose is a beautiful flowering plant, and an invaluable therapeutic emollient for general well being.
