Swiss Herbal Remedies Organic Flexy Flax Linseed Oil 500ml
We are bombarded nowadays with information and publicity about how the Omega-3 essential fatty acids help to maintain the health of the joints, heart and circulation and boost the brain power of children.Fish oil is then usually recommended as the best source of the Omega-3’s. Well, it is the best source of the essential fatty acids EPA and DHA which are the end line of essential fatty acid metabolism.These two essential fatty acids are made however from the Omega-3 essential fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid which is found in many plant oils. The best available source being flaxseed oil, also known as linseed oil. The reason fish oils contain EPA and DHA is because the fish eat plankton etc high in alpha-linolenic acid. Our bodies, just like the fish, are perfectly able to produce EPA and DHA from alpha-linolenic acid.
So, throw the fish back into the sea, stop squeezing the oil out of them and use pure, organic flax instead. Two teaspoonfuls of ‘Flexy Flax’ daily will provide you with 4.5g of alpha-linolenic acid and 1.46g of the Omega-6 essential fatty acid linoleic acid. There is also 1.9g of the Omega-9 essential fatty acid, oleic acid in two teaspoonfuls
