Flaxseed oil has been used for over 3,000 years, and it was cultivated in ancient Egypt. It was spun into cloth, and the seeds were ground and pressed to extract the oil. Modern flax oil is well known for its nutrient value. Flaxseed oil is a great source of omega-3s: just one teaspoon provides about twice the amount of omega-3s most people get through their diets.
Our Flaxseed Oil Blend delivers a carefully balanced ratio of 7,000 mg of Omega-3 to 1,800 mg of Omega-6 to 2,700 mg of Omega-9. This 3-6-9 combo provides a superior source of EFA’s derived from flaxseed, which is the optimal ratio. In addition to the omega fatty acids, flaxseed has a high level of dietary fiber and lignans, which contain plant estrogens and antioxidants. Although not as well known to the public as the omega-3s, the omega-9 fatty acids offer many health benefits. A recent study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition indicates omega-9 fatty acids may play a role in increasing metabolism and improving mood.
The benefits of flaxseed oil supplementation are far ranging, and include:
- Cardiovascular support
- Promotion of digestive health
- Joint comfort and mobility
- Healthy skin and hair
It’s a great way to increase the amount of fatty acids in the diet — especially if you who can not swallow pills and capsules, or don’t find fish and other dietary sources particularly palatable. Also a great addition for kids who are picky eaters.
Our Flaxseed Oil Blend is cold pressed, and it is packaged in an 8 ounce, light-resistant bottle to preserve the quality and freshness of the oils. Please refrigerate after opening.
