Flax Oil is the richest plant source of omega-3 fatty acids. The superior choice for obtaining omega-3s, Flax Oil is, not only better tasting than fish oil, but is also less expensive, does not contain ocean-borne contaminants and is produced from a readily renewable resource.
Flora's Flax Oil contains 58% omega-3s (as alpha-linolenic acid, or ALA), 14% omega-6s (as linoleic acid, or LA), and 19% omega-9 (as oleic acid, or OA). Because they're essential, ALA and LA are necessary for the normal functioning of every single cell, tissue, gland and organ in the body. However, due to over-processing of our food supply and other factors, omega-3 is critically lacking from our modern diets.
Flora Flax Oil is the superior choice for both vegetarians and non-vegetarians because it is:
- Made from organic Canadian flax seeds, the richest plant source of the essential omega-3 fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid (ALA)
- Certified gluten-free and non-GMO through independent laboratory testing
- Produced from a readily renewable natural resource
- Free of ocean-borne contaminants
