Flax Seed Oil


Metabolics Flax Seed Oil is obtained from organically grown crushed flax seeds. Flax seed oil is a naturally rich source of the Omega 3 fatty acid, ALA (Alpha Linolenic Acid).

Alpha Linolenic Acid contributes to the maintainance of normal blood cholesterol levels, the beneficial effect being obtained with a daily intake of 2gm of ALA.

Human conversion of ALA to EPA and DHA is slow. About 15% ALA converts to EPA and 5% to DHA. Also a deficiency of any of the vitamin and mineral cofactors, that is B3, B6, Zinc and Magnesium that are required by Elongase and Delta 6 desaturase enzymes  may inhibit conversion to EPA and DHA. Loss of Delta 6 desaturase activity occurs during aging and EPA and DHA are taken up more rapidly into cell membranes from fish oil sources.

However Flax Seed Oil provides a high source of ALA as an alternative to fish oil.

Prostate cancer sufferers are advised to source DHA and EPA from fish oils.

This product is best kept refrigerated.

Not suitable for vegetarians.
