Lamberts Flax Seed Oil capsules, an omega 3 supplement, are an excellent alternative to fish oils as the oil obtained from flax seed is 60% by weight alpha-linolenic acid. Healthy bodies are able to convert alpha-linolenic acid into the omega 3 fatty acids present in fish oil (EPA and DHA) as required.
Alpha-Linolenic Acid is converted by the body into the omega 3 fatty acids EPA and DHA according to its need. Alpha-Linolenic Acid is required in large amounts by the body but modern day diets are often low in this essential nutrient. Lamberts® Flax Seed Oil is cold pressed to ensure that the nutritive qualities are retained and to protect the ALA from oxidation we use opaque capsule shells and add vitamin E as an antioxidant. Our tests on the degree of saturation (a measure of freshness) show that the precious ALA is stable during the shelf life of the product.
- Cold pressed to ensure nutrtive qualities are retained.
- 1000mg of pure flax seed oil per capsule.
- No aftertaste or odour associated with fish oils.
- Suitable for vegetarians.
