Product Brief: Flaxseed Oil is a valuable Essential Fatty Acid supplement. In particular, Flaxseed Oil is rich in Alpha Linolenic Acid or ALA. ALA is called an Essential Fatty Acid, because it is a “good” fat essential for life. Because our bodies cannot make ALA, we must get it from our diet. That’s why Flaxseed Oil, containing approximately 55% ALA, is so important as a supplement.
Once our body gets the ALA it needs from Flaxseed Oil, it is transformed into two other fatty acids: EPA and DHA (the same beneficial compounds found in fish oil). Research shows that EPA and DHA can help protect us from heart disease, lower bad cholesterol, improve our immune system, assist in brain functions, protect against certain cancers
and reduce the pain from arthritic inflammation.
Health First’s Flaxseed Oil is grown in Canada under certified organic conditions. The oil is then cold-pressed to avoid damaging the EFA content.
