Flaxseed Oil 1000mg x 90 Softgels
Omega 3 essential fatty acids (EFAs) are required to support key areas of health but are not made in the body. They are obtained from dietary sources such as oily fish, seeds and nuts, and supplements.
Flaxseeds (Linum usitatissimum) are one of the world’s oldest crops and contain fibre, phytonutrients, vitamins and minerals as well as Alpha-Linoleic Acid (ALA), the parent fatty acid from which the bioactive Omega 3 fatty acids EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) are derived.
ALA specifically contributes to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels and EFAs are needed for normal growth and development of children.
The Omega 3 ALA rich oil is extracted from flaxseeds using technology to ensure the stability of the volatile bioactive fats. This makes flaxseeds a valuable source of Omega 3 EFAs especially for those following vegetarian and vegan diets where sources of Omega 3 EFAs can be more limited.
Nutrigold’s Flaxseed Oil delivers 1000mg Flaxseed Oil, which contains 450mg bioactive ALA as well as other phytonutrients, per capsule in capsule shells suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
