A vegetarian source of omega-3 fatty acids.

Research indicates that omega 3 fatty acids are important for the maintenance of a healthy heart, and in helping to maintain joint mobility, as well as healthy skin. Flax seed oil is an excellent alternative to fish oils, as the oil obtained from flax seed has 60% by weight alpha-linolenic acid and contains almost twice as much omega 3 per gram of weight than fish oils.
  • Suitable for those following a vegetarian diet.
  • 90 Capsules.
  • Helps in maintaining healthy skin and joint mobility.
  • Used for maintenance of a healthy heart and supporting the cardio vascular system.
  • Suitable for those who cannot tolerate fish.
  • No after taste.
Flax seed is richer in omega 3 than fish oils and is also a useful source of linoleic acid, the 'parent' fatty acid to the omega 6 fatty acids, for which Evening Primrose is so well known. The other main essential fatty acid that our diets must provide.

Alpha-linolenic acid is converted by the body into the omega 3 fatty acids present in fish oil, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), according to their need. As an essential nutrient alpha-linolenic acid is required in large amounts by the body but because it is highly unstable, it is not always possible to be sure how much is available in the diet. Together with its derivatives EPA and DHA, it has been shown to be extremely useful in supporting the cardiovascular system.

Lamberts flax seed oil is cold pressed to ensure that the nutritive qualities are retained.
