Organic flax oil is the richest vegetarian source of omega-3 essential fatty acids (EFA 's). Since our bodies cannot produce EFA 's, they must be obtained from our diet. Flax seed oil is unique because it contains both omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids that are necessary for maintaining good health.
Our bodies depend on EFA 's for normal cell function. Essential fatty acids act as building blocks in cell membranes, and produce hormone-like substances necessary for energy metabolism and cardiovascular and immune health. Flax seed oil contains more than twice the amount of omega-3 fatty acids as fish oils.

Safe and nutritious for all age groups.
Unrefined and non-hydrogenated.
Flaxseed and Falxseed Oil
Flaxseed, called linseed in some countries, is a good source of dietary fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, and lignans. Each of these components may contribute to the health effects of eating flaxseed, but flaxseed oil contains no fiber and very little lignan.
Where is it found?
In addition to its presence in flaxseed oil, small amounts of ALA are also found in canola, soy, black currant, and walnut oils. Small amounts of lignans are present in a wide variety of foods of plant origin.
