Solgar - Flaxseed Oil Cold Pressed Omega 3 EFA 1250 mg. - 250 Softgels
Flaxseed Oil is one of the premium sources of Alpha Linolenic Acid (Omega 3), an essential fatty acid that can't be made by the body and must be obtained from diet. The oil is derived from the seeds of the Flax plan (Linum usitatissimum), one of the most concentrated vegetarian plant sources of Omega 3 fatty acids found in nature. Studies indicate flaxseed oil helps to promote cardiovascular, immune, and skin health. This formulation offers premium, organic flaxseed oil, cold pressed without the use of chemical solvents.
Each softgel supplies 1250 mg of fresh, cold pressed flaxseed oil, a source of linolenic acid, an omega-3 polyunsaturate; and linoleic acid, an essential omega-6 polyunsaturate. Flaxseed — the most concentrated vegetarian source of Omega-3 fatty acids found in nature — contributes to heart and nerve health while providing an energy source for the body.
Solgar's Commitment to Excellence
Solgar has been innovating and producing fine quality nutritional supplements since 1947. Solgar's ongoing mission is to provide consumers with top-quality, innovative, science-based nutritional supplements to enhance their total health and well-being. Solgar is committed to exclusively distributing our products in the natural products industry where knowledgeable retailers worldwide can guide consumers through the vast array of choices.
The Solgar Gold Standard
Solgar has been manufacturing fine quality nutritional supplements for over 60 years in an industry that is constantly evolving. Throughout these changes, Solgar has never lost sight of their original mission - to provide consumers with the highest quality nutritional products and information to help promote optimal health. Solgar's attention to detail from manufacturing through distribution has enabled them to set, maintain, and continually raise the Gold Standard™ for quality nutritional supplements, education, and service. The Solgar Gold Standard™ is much more stringent than the government requires.
Researched, Science-Based Products. Solgar is known globally for producing innovative, science-based, efficacious products. All Solgar products have been thoroughly researched by their R & D department. Solgar has a team of experts dedicated exclusively to research. Solgar also sponsors research on existing and potential new products by donating funding, their products, and their experts to studies across the world.
State-of-the-Art Manufacturing. Solgar's state-of-the-art manufacturing facility meets pharmaceutical standards for machinery, procedures, quality control, and environmentalism. These standards exceed those required by the supplement industry, but Solgar feels they are necessary to provide their customers with the best quality products possible. With their own manufacturing, laboratory, and distribution facilities, Solgar ensures quality throughout the entire process.
Quality Control. Solgar has high standards for quality. Solgar has a rigorous quality control system in place to test products at every stage, from raw material to finished product. All materials coming into Solgar's facility are subject to stringent tests to ensure they are the highest quality; any that don't meet Solgar's standards are rejected and immediately sent back to their suppliers. A rarity in the industry, Solgar has its own on-site Quality Laboratory that ensures that each product leaving their door meets Solgar's Gold Standard™ for excellence. Solgar doesn't just do one test on their products. They do many.
USP Water Purification System. Solgar invested over $1 million in a state-of-the-art USP reverse osmosis water purification system - widely considered the finest type of filtration available. This isn't required by Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs), but the Solgar Gold Standard™ requires that they have the best system possible.
HEPA Air Filtration System. All of the air that circulates through the Solgar facility passes through a bank of HEPA filters that remove 99.9% of airborne particulates. Both air and water samples are routinely tested in Solgar's in-house laboratory.
Cleanliness. Solgar disassembles and cleans every piece of machinery after each formula change. In some cases, the equipment is broken down into hundreds of parts and may take up to eight hours to clean and reassemble. Solgar also uses food-grade, environmentally friendly cleaners to sanitize equipment between batches.
Gluten Free. Most Solgar products are gluten free.
Kosher Certified. Solgar selected KOF-K Kosher Supervision, an international organization that follows the strictest laws of the kosher observance, to certify Solgar's products.
Halal Certified. Solgar chose the Halal Food Authority (HFA), a U.K.-based organization that adheres to the strictest laws of Halal, to certify their products.
Aqueous Coated Tablets. Solgar was one of the first in the Natural Products Industry to integrate a natural, water-based coating for all of Solgar's coated-tablet products as an alternative to using the more common solvent-based coating agent, shellac (pharmaceutical glaze). This natural, water-based coating improves disintegration and dissolution, providing better absorption of the nutrients.
Recyclable Amber Glass Bottles. Solgar's 100% recyclable glass bottles are non-leaching, non-porous, and odorless. Although these "old style" medicine bottles cost more, Solgar uses them because they protect against heat, light, and moisture, thereby preserving nutrient potency.
