Pain-Killing Foods #10: Evening Primrose

January 27, 2015 1 min read

Evening primrose is one of those flowers you'll find everywhere around the country, as it's native to North America. However, it's more than just a cute little yellow flower, but it serves as a powerful pain-killing remedy as well! One of the things that makes evening primrose (usually found in oil form) such an awesome remedy is the fact that it contains phenylalanine, an amino acid that is needed by your body to produce dopamine and epinephrine. It is used in many analgesic and anti-depressant products, as both dopamine and epinephrine are chemicals that dull pain and promote a "happy feel-good" sensation in the brain.

Evening primrose also contains a lot of gamma-linoleic acids, which help to improve skin health, promote the growth of healthy cells, and regulate hormones. It can even aid in the treatment and management of rheumatoid arthritis pain!
