BENEFITS: Flax Seed Oil is a very rich source of alpha-linolenic acid, an omega-3 fatty acid that can be converted into eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). Omega-3 fatty acids are essential nutrients that are poorly represented in the American diet. These beneficial fatty acids support the proper regulation of immune function and are important for cardiovascular health and normal cell division.*

Flax Seed Oil is a very rich source of alphalinolenic acid (LNA). LNA is an omega-3 fatty acid that can be converted by the body into eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), the more biologically active omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3's are known as essential fatty acids (EFA?s) because they cannot be produced by humans and therefore must be obtained from the diet. Omega-3 fatty acids are critical for the maintenance cell membrane fluidity and healthy cellular signaling. In addition, omega-3 fatty acids are known to support balanced immune and inflammatory responses.*
Flax Seed Oil has been specially processed and cold pressed to be as faithful to the original seed oil source as possible. This exceptional product comes in soft gels in order to seal the oil and protect it from oxidation and contamination.
