Flax Seed Oil/High Lignans
Flax Seed Oil is a natural source of Alpha Linolenic Acid (ALA) and of Linoleic Acid (LA). Today's diets and lifestyles may require supplementation of these essential fatty acids.
Flaxseed oil is one of the richest sources of Alpha Linolenic Acid (Omega-3 ALA) and also contains Alpha Linoleic Acid (Omega-6 ALA), another essential fatty acid (EFA). The essential nutrients must be obtained through the diet and cannot be biosynthesized by the human body. These EFA's are converted into EPA and DHA, two well-known compounds that are recognized for their benefits in heart health, brain function and arthritis. Consumption of flaxseed oil may be extremely important for vegetarians and for people who do not eat fish. The role of ALA in the prevention of arteriosclerosis has also been well documented.
Supplementation with EFA's may decrease harmful low density lipoproteins (“bad” cholesterol) and increase beneficial high density lipoproteins (“good” cholesterol). High Lignans is certified organic, cold pressed, unrefined and GMO free. Lignans are frequently considered as a type of fiber, but are most suitably considered as a type of phytoestrogen, a plant compound with estrogen like activity.
