- Product Details
Flax Oil is nature's richest source of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), an omega-3 essential fatty acid your body naturally converts to EPA and DHA - the same fatty acids in fish oil that support heart health, reduce inflammation and improve cellular integrity. Flaxseed is the most concentrated source of of SDG lignans - phyonutrients that exhibit strong antioxidant properties and can have a balancing effect on hormones. Our Enriched Organic Flax Oil with Lignans has the same fresh, clean taste as our flax oil, with the added benefit of freshly sliced flaxseed added in.
Featuring concentrated amounts of Alpha-Linolenic Acid (ALA), flaxseed oil is nature's greatest vegetarian source of vegetarian Omega-3 Fatty Acids.
ALA is called an esssential fatty acid because it is vital to our health and since our bodies cannot produce it on their own, it is essential that we receive it from dietary sources.
ALA plays an important role in the health of our hearts.
Several studies have suggested that consumption of dietary ALA may reduce the risk of heart disease and promote overall heart health. .
While the oil pressed from flaxseed is rich in Omega-3 Fatty Acids, the seeds themselves are also a concentrated source of lignans - phytoestrogens that are not only suggested to be able to regulate hormone balance but which also have have antioxidant properties.
Flaxseed has been a coveted source of health for millennia.
Ancient Egyptians and Greek physicians like Hippocrates touted its ability to cure various ills.
In the 8th century A.D., King Charlemagne thought flax so essential to health that he wrote a series of laws requiring his subjects to consume a certain amount each year.
In more recent centuries, classic herbal medicine texts note that flaxseed oil has been used to relieve gastro-intestinal pains and infections, colic and hemorrhoids.
Applied topically, flaxseed oil was mixed with calcium oxide to use on burns, and blended with honey to remove facial spots.
The seeds themselves have been used for a bevy of ailments from alleviating constipation to treating coughs, colds, respiratory infections and urinary tract infections.
Lignans are phytoestrogens found in high fiber foods such as cereals, grains, nuts, fruits and vegetables.
Researchers have found flaxseeds to be the richest source of plant lignans, with a lignan content 100-times higher than its nearest competitor, oat bran.
Once ingested, lignans have both an estrogen and anti-estrogen-like effect, similar to soy.
Scientists believe the effects of lignans on estrogen metabolism, in addition to their antioxidant and fiber properties, may explain why populations eating diets rich in lignans have a lower incidence of cancer.
Other studies indicate flax lignans reduce cholesterol and prevent atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) and diabetes in animals.
Clinical studies are currently underway to see if the same effects apply to humans.
