Organic Flaxseed Oil is a rich source of essential fatty acids of the Omega 3, 6 and 9 groups including Alpha Linolenic (LNA), Linoleic (LA) and Oleic fatty acids, which are important for good health. Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids are necessary for the production of prostaglandins also important for general well-being.
Organic Flaxseed Oil can be helpful for skin complaints, muscle and joint pain, to help maintain heart health (eg. lower blood fat levels, manage blood cholesterol levels), healing and repair, and for overall health and well being.

Special Benefits

LNA, LA AND OLEIC ACID - FOR HEALTH & WELL BEING
Flaxseed Oil contains around 50 to 60% of the Omega 3 essential fatty acid (EFA), Alpha Linolenic Acid (LNA), and 12 to 15% of Linoleic Acid (LA), an Omega 6 fatty acid (EFA) which can be converted to Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA). Flaxseed Oil is also a rich source of Oleic Acid, an Omega 9 monounsaturated fatty acid found in olive oil.

LNA, LA and Oleic acids are increasingly used as supplements for their health benefits. The two Omega 3 fatty Acids, Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA), produced in the body from the Alpha Linolenic Acid (LNA) found in Flaxseed Oil, are also important for good health.

Essential fatty acids (EFA) used for manufacturing prostaglandins cannot be manufactured in the body and need to be provided from the diet.

PROSTAGLANDINS - THE HEALTH CONTROLLERS
The Omega 3 fatty Acids LNA, DHA and EPA are converted to Prostaglandins E3 (PGE3) in the body. PGE3 is a hormone - like compound which controls many of the body’s essential functions. These include the inflammatory, healing and repair processes, the immune system, the neural circuits in the brain, cardiovascular, digestive and reproductive systems, the body thermostat and calorie loss mechanisms.1

FOR SKIN, HAIR AND NAILS
Essential fatty acids are needed for healthy skin and hair. Deficiency in EFA’s may result in skin flaking, dandruff, brittle nails and thinning hair. Supplementing the diet with Flaxseed Oil can have beneficial effects on the skin, and many common and difficult to treat skin complaints respond favourably when flaxseed oil is included in the diet.

CONTROLLING INFLAMMATION
Flaxseed Oil is widely used as a nutritional supplement in arthritis, to help manage joint tenderness and improve mobility. This appears to be dthe result of the conversion of the Omega 3 essential fatty acids EPA and DHA to the series 3 prostaglandins (PGE3). PGE3 controls the inflammatory process by blocking the production of the inflammatory Series 2 prostaglandins (PGE2) and leukotrienes.

A diet high in Arachidonic acid, which is found in many animal fats, can result in the production of high levels of inflammatory PGE2, which can damage tissues and cells resulting in painful joints and skin conditions.

MANAGING CHOLESTEROL
Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids in Flaxseed Oil help control cholesterol levels by helping HDL cholesterol (the beneficial cholesterol) to remove LDL Cholesterol from the arteries and return it to the liver for removal. HDL cholesterol travels smoothly through the blood stream and is converted into bile salts, the mechanism by which the body controls cholesterol levels. 1

REDUCING BLOOD STICKINESS
Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids also help maintain the fluid nature of blood, by controlling the tendency of the blood toform clots in the veins and arteries.

STRENGHTEN CELL MEMBRANES ... HEALING & REPAIR
Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids help to strengthen cell membranes which make them more fluid and flexible allowing them to exchange materials between inner and outer cell membrane layers more effectively. Fluid and flexible cell membranes also help the building of new tissue and the speeding of the healing process.

BRAIN FUNCTION
Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids aid brain function by assisting transmission and reception of nerve impulses between the brain cells Lack of essential fatty acids (EFA) can cause a reduction in number and size of brain cells and reduce the communication between the brain cells and thus affect learning, growing and thinking.1

Low levels or imbalances of Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids may affect cell function and result in problems associated in many of the degenerative conditions seen today.

A study by Rudin in the US has shown that Omega 3 fatty acid deficiency may be a significant factor in the onset of some mental illnesses.2
