Flax Oil (1000mg) - Certified Organic Overview
Now Flax Oil is specially processed to be as fresh as possible in a convenient, long-lasting form. Pure Flaxseed Oil tends to turn rancid very quickly, but this softgel form is protected from oxidation and contamination that causes spoiling. Flax Oil is a potent source of Essential Fatty Acids, EFA's, and other healthy fats. EFA's are fatty acids that we need but our bodies can't produce on their own. Flax oil provides the EFA's Omega-3 and Omega-6 as well as other extremely healthy fatty acids.
Alpha Linolenic Acid, an Omega-3, aids in heart and circulation health and is the most abundant fatty acid in Flax oil. Deficiency of the EFA Omega-6, provided by Linolenic Acid, can result in dry hair, hair loss, and poor wound healing. Together, Omega's 3 and 6 aid your body's control of inflammation and the central nervous system. Flax Oil also provides a large amount of Oleic Acid, Omega-9, which isn't an EFA, but it is a healthy polyunsaturated fat, and it may help boost memory. For a rich source of essential and beneficial fatty acids, try Now Flax Oil.
