WHAT IS FLAXSEED OIL?

Flaxseed oil comes from the seeds of the flax plant and contains approximately 40% flaxseed oil by weight per flax seed. 68% of this oil is omega-3 fatty acid, making it an incredible source of omega-3 fatty acids. You may have stumbled upon flaxseeds in the form of being whole, cracked or grounded in baked products. Flaxseeds are extremely high in fibre and rich in potassium, which makes them an absolute favourite amongst nutritionists and people seeking a healthier diet. So why do we need Flaxseed oil in a tablet form?

Flaxseed oil in tablet form makes it easy for vegans, vegetarians or people on plant-based diets to get the incredibly powerful omega-3 fatty acids used by the body on a daily basis. The ‘3’ in Omega-3 refers to the major types of fatty acids that are ingested in foods: alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Once taken, the body converts ALA to EPA and DHA, which are more readily used by the body. As the body is unable to produce ALA on its own, Omega-3 fatty acids are essential dietary additions and an important component to any good health.
