Flaxseed Oil (23 products)


Flaxseed Oil, also known as linseed oil, is a concentrated vegetable oil obtained from flax, has been known to humans for a surprisingly long time. Flax, which is scientifically known as Linum usitatissimum, has many uses and has been a part of various cultures.


Flaxseed Oil is a source of beneficial omega-3, -6, and -9 fatty acids, which are important for healthy skin and hair. Taking a Flaxseed Oil Supplement regularly may have an anti-inflammatory action and may help maintain healthy heart function. Specifically, Flaxseed Oil contains alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), a form of omega-3 fatty acid that is only converted in small amounts to active forms of omega-3, like EPA and DHA.


If you aren’t getting enough DHA and EPA in your diet, most guidelines recommend at least 1,600 mg of ALA omega-3 fatty acids daily for men and 1,100 mg for women.


Just one tablespoon of Flaxseed Oil can meet and exceed your daily ALA need.


Omega-3 fatty acids are essential to health and have been associated with benefits like reduced inflammation, improved heart health and protection for the brain against aging.


Flaxseed Oil Supplements come in either Cold Pressed Liquid or as Flaxseed Capsules.
