Pure Lignan Flax Seed Oil - Certified organic, Cold-Pressed, Unrefined and NON-GMO
Did you know that Flax Seed Oil is a vegetable source of Omega 3-6-9 fatty acids? Flax Seed Oil is also one of the richest sources of AlphaLinolenic Acid (ALA). ALA is converted into EPA and DHA, two well known compounds that are recognized for support and maintenance in heart health and brain health. Flax Seed is a rich source of soluble fiber and has strong antioxidant power. It is associated with reductions in total and LDL cholesterol, especially for people with high cholesterol.
Flaxseed oil is one of the richest sources of Alpha Linolenic Acid (Omega-3 ALA) and also contains Alpha Linoleic Acid (Omega-6 ALA), another essential fatty acid (EFA). The essential nutrients must be obtained through the diet and cannot be biosynthesized by the human body. These EFA's are converted into EPA and DHA, two well-known compounds that are recognized for their benefits in heart health, brain function and arthritis.
Consumption of flaxseed oil may be extremely important for vegetarians and for people who do not eat fish. The role of ALA in the prevention of arteriosclerosis has also been well documented. Supplementation with EFA's may decrease harmful low density lipoproteins (bad cholesterol) and increase beneficial high density lipoproteins (good cholesterol).
Olympian Labs Flaxseed Oil is certified organic, cold pressed, unrefined and GMO free. Lignans are frequently considered as a type of fiber, but are most suitably considered as a type of phytoestrogen, a plant compound with estrogen like activity.
