|Barlean's Organic Flaxseed Oil |
In nature 50 essential nutrients have been discovered that are necessary to sustain human life. Of these, two essential fatty acids have been identified, alpha linolenic acid, an Omega-3 fatty acid, and linoleic acid, an Omega-6 fatty acid. Of all known food sources organic flaxseed oil has been recognized as nature's richest source of these vital essential fatty acids containing 55% alpha linolenic and 16.7% linoleic acids. Modern manufacturing methods of polyunsaturated oils have done much to remove these important fats from our food chain. Large scale nutritional surveys suggest that much of our population is deficient in essential fatty acids.
Recent scientific research, coupled with flaxseed oil's long history of therapeutic use, has propelled essential fat supplementation into the forefront of human nutrition.
