Blackmores Flaxseed Oil 1000mg Capsules x 100
Blackmores Flaxseed Oil 1000mg is a source of beneficial omega-3,6, and 9 fatty acids, in particular it is a rich source of omega-3 containing 60%, alpha-linolenic acid. In Western diets today, the ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 is significantly lower than recommended.
The richest sources of omega-3 are fish and eggs, therefore vegetarians often are at risk of having low levels of omega-3 in their diet.

Pure & organic (utilising organic flax)

How it works:
Flaxseed is a vegetable source of omega-3 essential fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), the parent fatty acid of all omega-3 fatty acids such as eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).
The essential fatty acids in flaxseed oil are part of the basic building block of cell membranes and a good source of energy.
Flaxseed oil may contribute to the reduction of inflammation by providing a building block of anti-inflammatory biochemicals and by decreasing the inflammatory effects of excess omega-6 fatty acid linolenic acid (AL) so abundant in vegetable oils. ALA may also reduce platelet aggregation. All important for maintaining good heart health.
