Can you 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 and functions.
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 response, it is just one example of the re-introduction of a natural and unrefined food to the diet to promote optimum health.
