100% Organic Golden Flax Seed Oil 500ml. A rich source of Omega 3 fatty acids. Average Reviews Customer Reviews Write Review
Flax seed oil (also known as linseed oil) is one of the richest sources of Omega-3 essential fatty acids - providing 57% more then fish oils and containing both alpha-linolenic (an Omega-3 fatty acid) and linoleic acid (an Omega-6 Fatty acid) in generous amounts.
Our bodies are unable to produce these essential fatty acids (EFA's) contained in flax seed oil and surveys show that around 80% of the population is deficient in essential fatty acids. The only way to supply our body's need of these natural oils is to make them a part of our diet. We can do this either by eating foods in which essential fatty acids are naturally abundant or by taking the EFA's as a supplement.
The action of omega 3 fatty acids is believed by some to block the action of cancer promoting cells and may help prevent heart disease by lowering cholesterol. Omega 3 fatty acids are natural blood thinners and may reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke by preventing blood clots. Omega 3 essential fatty acids are anti-lipogenic and increase beta oxidation which means that they block fat storage and increase fat burning.
Dosage: 5-15ml - Higher levels can be used under the guidance of a nutritionally orientated physician.
This highly nutritious oil can be added to fruit or vegetable smoothies, salad dressings, dips, soups or as a condiment drizzled onto vegetables, pasta, rice, potatoes etc... or just taken from the spoon.
Flax oil would appear best taken with other food as research reveals that protein and fats work together, however you cannot cook with it as in liquid form it is very sensitive and is degraded by light, heat and air.
Each 5ml teaspoon typically provides:
Alpha linolenic acid (omega 3) 2450mg, Linoleic acid (omega 6) 750mg, Oleic acid (omega 9) 770mg.
Flax may offer double protection against serious health conditions due to its high concentration of omega 3 fatty acids. Natural blood thinners, omega-3s may prevent dangerous blood clots, which can increase the risk of heart attack and stroke. Keep out of sight and reach of children.
Manufacturers often recommend that Flax Seed Oil be kept inside its original box, inside the fridge.
Approx 100 teaspoons per bottle.

With a good balanced diet and including this flax oil, makes my skin healthy and gives it a lovely glow.
Best mixed in a smoothie or I enjoy putting it in my yoghurt with some fruit first thing in the morning. Don't put it on hot food as the properties of the oil will be destroyed.Reviewer's Name:
