Did You Know?
Several scientific studies show that consumption of Omega-3 essential fatty acids (EFAs) leads to a lower risk of coronary heart disease. Flax Seed Oil is a rich source of these EFAs, it also contains lignans, and linoleic acid, another EFA. These two fatty acids are termed ‘essential’ because the body cannot manufacture them. Until recently, experts believed the best sources of Omega-3 were fish oils. While fish oils are a good source, Flax Seed Oil contains twice as much Omega-3 EFA’s as fish oil products.
What are the benefits?
When you think of fats, you may think of foods that will deteriorate your health and even cause you to gain weight. Some fats, especially saturated fats, should be avoided, but some fats are essential to maintaining good health. The body needs Omega-3 EFA’s to manufacture and repair cell membranes, enabling the cells to obtain optimum nutrition and expel harmful waste products. These important nutrients can be found in flax seeds, marine fish and green leafy vegetables, but some people may not consume enough of these foods to meet the body’s needs. Essential Fatty Acids (EFA’s) are just that – essential to life! We cannot manufacture these within our body, so we must rely on getting what we need from our diet. Brain tissue is largely made up of fatty acids, which are essential to healthy brain development and maintenance. As well as providing the building blocks for cell membranes, EFA’s have been found to have multiple health benefits for the whole body.
Rich in Omega 3, 6 and 9 flax seed oil contains nearly twice as much Omega-3 EFA’s as fish oil products. As well as providing the building blocks for cell membranes, EFA’s have been found to have multiple health benefits for the whole body, including the nervous and cardiovascular systems. Flax Seed Oil is a rich source of these EFAs. It also contains lignans, and linoleic acid, another EFA. These two fatty acids are termed ‘essential’ because the body cannot manufacture them.
