Usage & Administration
1 to 3 capsules daily.
Research indicates that omega 3 fatty acids are important for the maintenance of a healthy heart, and in helping to maintain joint mobility, as well as healthy skin. Lamberts® Flax Seed Oil is an excellent alternative to fish oils as the oil obtained from flax seed is 50% by weight Alpha-Linolenic Acid and therefore contains almost twice as much omega 3 per gram of weight than standard strength fish oils.
Alpha-Linolenic Acid is converted by the body into the omega 3 fatty acids EPA and DHA according to its need. As an essential nutrient, Alpha-Linolenic Acid is required in large amounts by the body but because it is highly unstable, it is not always possible to be sure how much is available in the diet. The Flax Seed Oil from Lamberts® 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.
Flax seed oil is also a useful source of linoleic acid, the other main essential fatty acid that our diets must provide.
Lamberts® Flax Seed Oil capsules provide:
- A vegetarian source of omega 3s
- Omega 3s protected from oxidation by the capsule shell and vitamin E
- A rich source of omega 3s without the aftertaste
