Containing the Essential Fatty Acids Omega 3, 6 and 9, Flax Seed Oil is nature’s richest source of Omega 3. With the unique soil and climate combination of the Canterbury Plains of New Zealand, this is typically around 60% and considered to be the highest Omega 3 percentage obtained from non-genetically modified seed.
Cold-pressed from Linseed seed grown annually for Bio Oils, our Flax Seed Oil is pure, natural and unrefined….and with no depletion of any of nature’s resources too!
Flax Seed Oil helps to re-address any imbalance of the Omega 3: Omega 6 ratio in our diet. There is scientific research and belief to suggest that one of the causes of cardiovascular and inflammatory type symptoms is the increase in Omega 6 in our diets. Traditionally (from cavemen onwards) we have eaten higher Omega 3 in our diet. In the mid 50-70’s this changed due to farming practices, for example lot feeding, grain fed and barn raised cows, and our meat therefore is not eating as much green grass (high in Omega 3) and eating more grains (high in Omega 6). Add to this the increase in fried food in our diet, and the use of vegetable oils such as sunflower, soy and corn, our diets now have 6 to 10 times more Omega 6 in them than Omega 3. Some Omega 6 have been shown to be inflammatory, hence the rise in inflammatory conditions today. So to address the balance we need to consume more Omega 3 rich foods and supplements ...Flax Seed Oil is the richest source.
