Provides Omega-3s in a Cheap, Convenient Form!





Flax Oil is the richest vegetarian source of the essential omega-3 EFAs, in the form of alpha linolenic acid (ALA). Our bodies cannot produce EFAs, so they must be obtained from our diet.


Several prospective cohort studies have examined the relationship between dietary ALA intake and the risk of coronary heart disease (CHD). In a cohort of more than 45,000 U.S. men followed for 14 years, each increase in dietary ALA of 1 g/day was associated with a 16% reduction in the risk of CHD, with 3 g/day giving nearly a 50% reduction in risk (Mozaffarian et al., 2005). That's equivalent to just one teaspoon of Flax Seed Oil. Moreover, in those who ate little or no seafood, each 1 g/day increase in dietary ALA was associated with a 47% reduction in the risk of CHD (Mozaffarian et al., 2005). In a cohort of more than 76,000 U.S. women followed for ten years, those with the highest ALA intakes (above 1.4 g/day) had a risk of fatal CHD that was 45% lower than women with the lowest ALA intake (below 0.7 g/day) (Hu et al., 1999).


It has been known for many years that atopic (allergic) individuals have abnormal proportions of various polyunsaturated fatty acids in their blood. There is a greater prevalence of allergic disease in different regions with a high ratio of the plasma concentrations of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids. Linoleic acid (LA, or omega-6) is a precursor of arachidonic acid, which, in turn, is a precursor of prostaglandin E2 (PGE2). PGE2 tends to increase IgE, and in turn increases histamine — i.e., the development of allergy is associated with a deficiency of omega-3 (Prescott & Calder, 2004).


All Flax Oil from Omega Nutrition is processed according to the omegaflo® process, which prevents damage and oxidation of the fragile omega-3s. Do not freeze. Certified organic Flax Oil.


Also available in 1,000 mg Flax Oil Capsules. The oils, with valuable nutritional value still intact, are further light-protected in naturally carob- darkened capsules. Great for the office, for those who hate the taste of oil, and frequent travelers.
