Organic Flax Seed Oil is high in Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) which is an essential fatty acid (meaning it is not synthesized in the body) and a precursor to the production of EPA and DHA. EPA and DHA are Omega-3 fatty acids that are highly beneficial to the cardiovascular system as well as the brain and nervous system.1 Pharmacological studies have validated that ALA has many beneficial physiological effects.2 These include antioxidant activity, anti-metabolic syndrome, anti-inflammatory, neuroprotection, and support for a beneficial balance of the gut microbiome.3
Organic Flax Seed Oil is the richest source of the Omega-3 fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid in comparison to other foods such as chia seed, hemp seed, and walnuts, an essential fatty acid that helps to improve the metabolism of fats.
