tell me more about Flax Oil?
The beauty of Flax
oil is the high Omega 3 content. Omega 3 is the
most delicate of the essential fatty acids of
which there are three. Essential Fatty acids feed
every cell in the body, every tissue, gland and
organ. They are vital to all body structures andfunctions.
The three essential
fatty acids are Omega 3, Omega 6 and Omega 9.
We know that all of the essential fatty acids
are needed in the right balance, to live and function
normally. All Essential Fatty Acids are sensitive
to destruction by light, air and high temperature,
however Omeaga 3 is five times more chemically
sensitive and therefore five times more quickly
destroyed or damaged than Omega 6.
Omega 3 also know
as alpha linolenic acid (ALA) which is converted
by the body into eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) which
is then metabolized to docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).
Omega 3 is a natural anti-inflammatory.
Omega 6 also known
as linoleic acid (LA) is converted by the body
in gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). These essential
nutrients cannot be manufactured within the body,
they must be obtained from the food eaten.
Flax oil presents
a readily available pure product that enhances
the healing reponse, it is just one example of
the re-introduction of a natural and unrefined
food to the diet to promote optimum health.
