Waihi Bush Flax Magic 250ml - for Children
- Taking care of your child's fatty acid needs -
Flax Magic is the product of choice for infants and children, who may not yet be efficient at converting ALA and LA to the secondary Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids.
What is it?
Flax Magic is pressed from certified organic seeds of flax Linum usitatissimum (Linseed), hemp, golden flax and evening primrose. Uncertified blackcurrant seed oil is added. The oil is high quality, extra virgin, unrefined, and containing no toxic substances or cholesterol. The oils are 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.
Because a child on the average modern diet will be lacking in Omega-3, this blend provides twice as much Omega-3 as Omega-6. Because it contains such a wide range of both Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids, it is easy for the developing body to use, ensuring your child has the building blocks he or she needs for a healthy brain and nervous system and for general health of all body cells.
