What are Essential Fats?

Essential fats have been given their name by scientists because the body must have them to survive, but cannot synthesize them from any other substance we eat. A direct food source is required, hence the name "essential".

There are many kinds of fats but only two kinds of essential fats:

Omega 3 Alpha Linolenic Acid (ALA) and

Omega 6 Linoleic Acid (LA),

- both of which are unsaturated fats. Each essential fatty acid (EFA) is turned into several derivatives by the body, provided enough undamaged Omega 3 and Omega 6 are supplied in the right ratio. All other fats, such as Omega 9 (monounsaturated), Omega 7 and saturated fat are not called "essential" because the body is able to produce them from sugars and starches.

The benefits of Flax Oil Flax Oil

This oil has been used as a therapeutic remedy since the days of Ancient Greece and Rome and it provides you with the richest source of omega 3 essential fatty acids (EFA's) to improve:

  • Skin irritations, such as eczema and psoriasis.
  • Symptoms of inflammatory and rheumatoid arthritis.
  • To increase energy level, metabolism and stamina.
  • To increase required levels of omega 3 EFA's during pregnancy and nursing for the optimal development of children.
  • To decrease high blood cholesterol levels

About this quality nutritional oil:

  • Freshly pressed in an oxygen and light-free environment, at temperatures not exceeding 36 C (97 F).
  • Unrefined, non deodorised and unfiltered - leaving in all the minor ingredients and co-factors that are essential for the body to utilise the oil, whilst not damaging the delicate Omega 3s.
  • The taste and colour of this oil occasionally varies from one pressing to another - proof that the oil is unrefined and unbleached, because its taste reflects the climatic conditions in which the seeds were grown.
  • Packaged in nitrogen flushed, amber bottles to preserve freshness.
  • Certified Organic - the oil is pressed from certified organic seeds, carefully selected for flavour and maturity.
  • Fresh, highly nutritious and rich in Omega 3 as opposed to poor quality oils and supermarket oils whose vital nutrients are destroyed during processing.
  • Produced for health and nutritional value - not shelf life.
  • To ensure maximum freshness and nutritional value this oil has been kept chilled and we ask that you also store your oil refrigerated before and after opening.
