Blackmores Flaxseed Oil
A natural source of beneficial vegetarian omega-3 fatty acids. Suitable for vegetarians. In particular, it is a rich source of omega-3 containing 60% omega-3 alpha-linolenic acid. The most common sources of omega-3 are fish and eggs, therefore vegetarians are often at risk of having low levels of omega-3 in their diet.
- Omega-3, -6 and -9 are the types of fatty acids found in flaxseed oil. Omega-3 alpha-linolenic acid and omega-6 linoleic acids are essential as the body cannot synthesize these. It is important for good health to get the right balance of these fatty acids.
- Most diets are high in omega-6 (mainly from cooking oils like canola, sunflower, safflower and corn oils) and lower in omega-3. Generally people need to increase their intake of omega-3 fatty acids. The common sources of omega-3 are fish and eggs. Vegetarians are particularly at risk of having low levels of omega-3 in their diets.
- Essential fatty acids help to maintain the structural integrity of cell membranes and are beneficial to cell structure. A deficiency in the essential fatty acids (EFAs) can lead to dryness, scaling and redness of the skin.
