Vegetable source of heart-healthy omega-3s
Certified Organic Flax Seed Oil provides a vegetarian source of alpha-linolenic acid, an omega-3 essential fatty acid you must obtain from your diet. Your body naturally converts this fatty acid to EPA and DHA -- the same types of omega-3s found in fish oil.* Just one tablespoon provides approximately 7.6g of omega-3s.
Great for skin, joints, heart and immunity
Omega-3s play a role in skin and joint health, heart health, immunity, hormone balance, behavior, athletic performance, cell membrane structure and over 1,000 other biological actions.*
Easily add flax oil to your diet with the easy-pour spout
Add a tablespoon of Organic Flax Seed Oil to a protein shake and its bland taste will almost be completely masked by the protein. Another benefit is the fat in flax seed oil helps slow the digestion of a protein shake to keep you full longer.
Another way to use flax seed oil is to drizzle it on a salad. Just add a little vinegar and you'll have your own oil and vinegar dressing. This helps you combat the excess omega-6s that creep into your diet as many salad dressings use high omega-6 oils such as safflower, sunflower, soy or canola oil. All of these oils have higher omega-6s than omega-3s.
You can also take it right from a spoon. It has a convenient easy-pour spout creating a fine stream of oil to help you regulate how much oil you want.
If I take fish oil, should I take flax seed oil too?
We think the answer is yes. We carry have a regular strength and extra strength fish oil softgel that provides from 300 to 500 mg of omega-3s (EPA and DHA). To help counteract excess omega-6s in your diet, a single tablespoon of flax seed oil contains 7,600 mg of omega-3s (ALA), which is 15-25 times the omega-3s in a fish oil softgel. For this reason, flax is better at balancing the omega-6s you consume. Yet the type of omega-3s in fish may be preferred for brain health for example, which is why we think both fish and flax have a role in your diet.*
So be sure to give flax seed oil a try. Our Organic Flax Seed Oil is carefully crafted from certified organic flax seeds, then pressed and specially bottled to protect the delicate oil from free-radical damage. The result is a fresh-tasting golden oil that is never bitter. Guaranteed!
