Omega 3 organic Flax seed oil, cold pressed

Common Flax is one of oldest continuously harvested plants in world history. Flax with its many uses has generated a rich mythology in many cultures over the millennia. In Teutonic myths, flax flowers were believed to serve as protection from sorcery under the watch of the goddess Queen Hulda, who lived in a secret cave in the mountains.

In Bohemian lore, peasants believed that if seven-year-old children danced in the flax fields, they would become beautiful. From prehistoric times to the present, flax has been a source for food, fiber (linen), oil, and has been used in herbal preparations.

Flaxseed oil (also known as Linseed Oil) is one of the best vegetarian sources of essential fatty acids. It contains approximately 50-60% of the omega-3 essential fatty acid, known as linolenic acid or alpha-linolenic acid, and roughly 18-20% of the omega-6 essential fatty acid known as linoleic acid. Flaxseed oil is nature�s richest source of linolenic acid, which is frequently deficient in American diets. The essential fatty acids have several important functions. They are a necessary component of cell walls and cellular membranes throughout the body, they help in energy production and they help regulate the breakdown of cholesterol and triglycerides.

Most Americans consume diets that contain too much of the omega-6 fatty acids and not enough of omega-3 fatty acids. Flaxseed oil is a very important nutritional supplement because it is nature's best source of omega-3 fatty acid.
