Flax Seed Oil contains linoleic acid, an important fatty acid. In addition, it
contains high amounts of alpha linolenic acid (ALA), another essential fatty
ALA is an omega-3 oil, and the body turns it into EPA (an omega-3 oil found in Fish Oil Oil). EPA is then turned into 3-series prostaglandins.
Flaxseed oil does not have all the same effects as Fish Oil Oil, since the amount of ALA that is converted into EPA is far less than the amount of EPA found in Fish Oil Oil. However, flaxseed oil has some effects that are not found with Fish Oil Oil: it is an anti-inflammatory1 and also lowers blood pressure.2
ALA deficiencies are rare; they most commonly occur in formula fed infants.
Natural Sources: ALA, the major component of flaxseed oil, is found in lesser amounts in canola, soy, and walnut oils.
Useful in treatment of: Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia, Constipation, glaucoma, migraines, Vaginitis.
Recommended Dosage: 1 tablespoon, or 5 capsules. Should be taken in conjunction with Fish Oil Oil for best results.
