Flax Seed Oil

Flax Seed Oil Information

Flaxseed oil is derived from the seeds of the flax plant. Itl is one of the best sources of the essential fatty acids. It contains approximately 50-60% of the omega-3 essential fatty acid, known as alpha-linolenic acid, and roughly 18-20% of the omega-6 essential fatty acid known as linoleic acid. Flaxseed oil is nature’s richest source of linolenic acid, which is frequently deficient in American diets. Flaxseed oil and flaxseed contain substances that promote good health. Flaxseed oil is rich in alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), an essential fatty acid that appears to be beneficial for heart disease, inflammatory bowel disease, arthritis and a variety of other health conditions. Flaxseed, in addition to ALA, contains a group of chemicals called lignans that may play a role in the prevention of cancer. The essential fatty acids have several important functions. They are a necessary component of cell walls and cellular membranes throughout the body, they help in energy production and they help regulate the breakdown of cholesterol and triglycerides. Flaxseed oil is a very important nutritional supplement because it is nature’s best source of omega-3 fatty acid.
