Flaxseed - Flaxseed Oils & Lignans

Latin: Linum usitatissimum (L), also known as linseed, common flax, lint bells, winterlien

Clinical studies have demonstrated that omega-3 fatty acids can offer us some protection against a number of Western degenerative diseases such as cancer, heart disease, arthritis and kidney failure. Recent studies also show their importance in the maintenance of eye and brain function (particularly EPA & DHA).

There are 3 types of Omega 3 fatty acids:

  • Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) is obtained from plant sources including kidney beans, soybeans, flaxseed and flaxseed oil.
  • Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) from fish oils
  • Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) from fish oils

This section of our site focuses on the nutritional value of Flaxseed & Flaxseed Oils, a rich source of Alpha Linolenic Acid (ALA) an Omega 3 Essential Fatty Acid.
