    Products Information

    Flaxseed, also known as linseed in some countries, is a good source of dietary fibre, fatty acids and lignans. Its oil is rich in essential fatty acids, Omega-3, 6 and 9, which are important for maintaining optimum health. They have anti-inflammatory, anti-thrombotic, anti-arrhythmic, hypolipidemic and vasodilatory properties. These beneficial effects have been shown in the secondary prevention of coronary heart disease, hypertension, type 2 diabetes, renal disease, rheumatoid arthritis, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

     

    Dosage

    Take 1-2 capsules daily with meals or as professionally advised.

    Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) is an omega-3 fatty acid that is found abundantly in flaxseed oil. It desaturates and elongates in the human body to eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and by itself may have beneficial effects in health and in the control of chronic diseases.
