Flax Seed Oil is a very rich source of alpha-linolenic acid (LNA). LNA is an omega-3 fatty acid that can be converted by the body into eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), the more biologically active omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3?s are known as essential fatty acids (EFA?s) because they cannot be produced by humans and therefore must be obtained from the diet. Omega-3 fatty acids are critical for the maintenance of cell membrane fluidity and healthy cellular signaling. In addition, omega-3 fatty acids are critical for balanced immune and inflammatory responses.
Flax Seed Oil has been specially processed and cold pressed to be as faithful to the original seed oil source as possible. This exceptional product comes in soft gels in order to seal the oil and protect it from oxidation and contamination.

At higher intakes, the oil may decrease platelet aggregation. This suggests that caution should be exercised by those taking warfarin or other agents that increase clotting time and that supplementation should be halted prior to surgical procedures.
