Flax original can top up your Omega-3 levels if you are experiencing symptoms of Omega-3 deficiency such as:
-Dry skin and hair conditions, soft or brittle nails. The most common symptom is some form of skin problem
-Inflammatory conditions - acne, eczema, psoriasis and arthritis
-Lowered immunity, slow healing and allergic conditions like asthma
-Vision problems and dry eyes
-Learning disorders and behavioural changes like ADD/ADHD
-Mental deterioration, depression and mood swings
-Weakness, low energy and fatigue
-Tingling sensations in arms and legs
-Excessive thirst or frequent urination
Furthermore, Omega-3 fatty acids have been associated with reduced risk of cardiovascular disease. Studies have found that the Omega-3 in flax seed oil, alpha linolenic acid showed positive results in these areas:
-Protection against arrhythmia, a common cause of sudden cardiac death
-Reduction of LDL cholesterol, a risk factor for atherosclerosis
-Reduction of inflammation, a risk factor for atherosclerosis
-Protection against heart attack and stroke
-Possible beneficial effect on high blood pressure
The anti-inflammatory properties of flax seed oil hold promise for cancer prevention and tumour reduction.
Athletes looking for enhanced performance, endurance and shortened recovery time can find that flax seed oil helps in these areas due to improved oxygen transfer across cell membranes and increased breakdown of lactic acid. For your convenience, flax original is available in both liquid oil and capsule form.
Flax original is pressed from certified organic flax seed, Linum usitatissimum (Linseed). The oil is high quality, extra virgin, unrefined and contains no toxic substances or cholesterol. It is cold pressed in the absence of light, air and reactive metals and packaged in black HDPE plastic under an inert gas blanket to further protect it against light and oxygen.
To enhance absorption of essential fatty acids, take them with a natural emulsifier such as lecithin. This is particularly useful for those taking high quantities of omega oils. Lecithin, on its own, also has a number of other health benefits.
Flaxseeds are high in omega-3, the oil can be drizzled on salads, added to cooled porridge and smoothies or taken straight off the spoon as a daily supplement.
