Flax Seed Oil by Nutricology
Nutricology Flax Seed Oil - 100 Softgels
Nutricology Flax Seed Oil is the most potent known source of alpha-linolenic acid, an essential omega-3 fatty acid. It is extracted from organically grown flax seeds using a special cold-pressing process, which minimizes the damaging effects of light, oxygen and heat. Flax seed oil is also rich in the omega-6 essential fatty acid, linoleic acid, as well as the omega-9 essential fatty acid, oleic acid. With a total EFA content greater than 70%, and a total unsaturation of greater than 90%, this is a cost-effective source of omega-3, omega-6, and omega-9 fatty acids. Essential fatty acids are involved in prostaglandin synthesis, hormone production, immune response, fat metabolim, and cell membrane integrity and fluidity.
Many individuals consume far too many of their calories as fats. However, essential fatty acids are essential to optimal health. This group includes two fatty acids, namely linoleic acid and alpha-linolenic acid, which appear to have vitamin-like activity: they are essential for metabolism and cannot be produced in the body from simpler molecules. In addition, gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) is a fatty acid intermediate which may help some individuals bypass a weak link in fatty acid metabolism (delta-6-desaturase), so it can be classified as semi-essential.

As a dietary supplement, 1 to 3 softgels three times daily, or as directed by a healthcare practitioner.
