Our modern diets provide up to 20 times more omega 6 than omega 3, more than at any time in our history. But omega 3 is vital for proper brain function, healthy skin and many bodily functions.
EPA and DHA are the key omega 3 fatty acids, important for a healthy heart and arteries, the brain and for flexible joints.
Flax seed oil is an excellent alternative to fish oils as the oil obtained from flax seed is 60% by weight alpha-linolenic acid and contains almost twice as much omega 3 per gram of weight than fish oils. Alpha-linolenic acid is converted by the body into the omega 3 fatty acids present in fish oil (EPA and DHA) as required. As an essential nutrient, alpha-linolenic acid is required in large amounts by the body but because it is highly unstable, it is not always possible to be sure how much is available in the diet.
Flax seed oil is also a useful source of linoleic acid, the ‘parent’ fatty acid to the omega 6 fatty acids, for which evening primrose is so well known.
The flax seed oil from t3 ensures that the nutritive qualities are retained. 1000mg of pure flax seed oil, without the aftertaste or odour associated with fish oils.
Essential fatty acids (EFAs), such as omega 3 and 6, make up the cell membranes of every cell in the body, and produce hormone-like substances that are important for many biochemical processes, including energy metabolism, cardiovascular and immune system health.
