Thompsons Flax Seed Oil is an organic flaxseed oil supplement introducing a rich, natural source of linolenic acid, one of the omega 3 essential fatty acids. Plus, this high potency formula is rich in omega 3, 6, and 9 fatty acids. The flaxseed oil is harnessed using a cold extraction method to ensure high quality and superior effectiveness.
Flax seed oil is a rich natural source of fatty acids like Alpha Linolenic Acid (Omega 3), Linoleic Acid (Omega 6) and Oleic Acid (Omega 9). Humans do not have the ability to synthesize these nutrients so they must be obtained from foods like flaxseed oil, salmon, canola oil, sardines, evening primrose, and sunflower and safflower oils. Omega 3 and Omega 5 fatty acids are needed to maintain vascular health. They prevent the loosening or tightening and narrowing of arteries, as well as inflammation. Pregnant women, infants, children and the elderly usually are in need of these fatty acids.
Clinical trials show that flax seed oil helps in decreasing fatty build up or plaques in arteries by up to 46%. This is good news for maintaining healthy cardiovascular system. Studies also reveal that flax seed oil enhances calcium absorption and improves bone density as a result. This is beneficial for postmenopausal women who are at risk of bone loss and osteoporosis.
Added benefits of flax seed oil include healthy digestion of dietary fats to prevent constipation. It also promotes optimal skin, hair and nail health.
