There is some evidence that magnesium may enhance calcium absorption.

Other nutrients are needed by the body, along with EPO, to make PGE1. Consequently, some experts suggest that magnesium, zinc, vitamin C, niacin, and vitamin B6 should be taken along with EPO.

Vitamin B6 increases the amount of magnesium that can enter cells. As a result, these two nutrients are often taken together.

  • Abraham GE, Schwartz UD, Lubran MM. Effect of vitamin B-6 on plasma and red blood cell magnesium levels in premenopausal women. Ann Clin Lab Sci 1981;11:333-6.
Supplementing with polyunsaturated fatty acids (which are present in evening primrose oil) increases vitamin E requirements. Therefore, people taking evening primrose oil may need additional vitamin E.

  • Horwitt MK. Status of human requirements for vitamin E. Am J Clin Nutr 1974;27:1182-93.
Vitamin E appears to increase intestinal absorption and tissue uptake of vitamin A. Because of this effect, some doctors have used the combination of vitamin E and vitamin A for various skin conditions that are usually treated with vitamin A alone. The addition of vitamin E improved outcomes, while allowing for lower (and safer) doses of vitamin A.
