12/01/00 Promote heart health with flaxseed oil. Because
a typical American diet may not include a sufficient amount of
essential fatty acids (EFAs), it is vital that we include
sources of these EFAs in our diet because the body cannot
produce them on its own. Flaxseed oil is an ideal source of
omega-3 fatty acids, specifically alpha linolenic acid.
Supplementing the diet with omega-3 oils can aid or promote
cardiovascular health, metabolize cholesterol and fats, and
combat autoimmune disorders like rheumatoid arthritis.
