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.
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.

Maybe a bit strong

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
