Flax Seed Oil is regulated as a food in New Zealand and Australia. It keeps you healthy and vibrant as part of a balanced diet.
Because the goodness of pure, fresh, cold pressed, unrefined, extra virgin flax seed oil is enriched withblackcurrant seed and evening primrose seed oils, this blend has a fatty acid profile that includes five important polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fatty acids.
From flax seed oil we have the primary Omega-3 alpha linolenic acid (ALA), the primary Omega-6 linolenic acid (LA) and the monounsaturated Omega-9 oleic acid. Blackcurrant seed oil contributes the secondary Omega-3 stearidonic acid (SDA) and the secondary Omega-6 gamma linolenic acid (GLA). We add evening primrose seed oil to top up the GLA. It is easier for your body to utilise these secondary Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids because no conversion is required.
SDA and GLA are the building blocks used by your body to produce 'good' prostaglandins - those with anti-inflammatory and anti-clotting effects.
This wide range of naturally occurring fatty acids is what makes flax boost so special.
Some health problems can impair our ability to convert ALA and LA to the secondary Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids. flax boost is therefore advised for people with stress, poor diet, vitamin/mineral deficiency, high alcohol intake, exposure to toxic chemicals, forsmokers, and for people with illnesses such as hormone imbalance, infection, allergy, cardiovascular disease, cancer or diabetes
GLA has been shown to bring improvement in PMS, rheumatoid arthritis, eczema, asthma, cardiovascular disease, ADD/ADHD, osteoporosis, diabetic neuropathy, multiple sclerosis and as an adjunct to cancer treatment
In short, flax boost should be the first choice for anyone wanting to ensure intake of a full range of Omega-3 and Omega-6 essential fatty acids.
Please note that GLA is contraindicated with temporal lobe epilepsy.
Flax boost is pressed from certified organic seeds of the flax plant Linum usitatissimum (Linseed) and Evening Primrose. Uncertified blackcurrant seed oil is added. The oil is high quality, extra virgin, unrefined, 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 to further protect it against light damage.
