FLAXSEED OIL

FLAXSEED OIL contains Alpha-linolenic acid, an essential polyunsaturated fatty acid that belongs to the group of Omega 3 fatty acids.
Alpha-linolenic acid can be converted into other Omega-3 fatty acids in the body, including Eicosapentaeonic acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).
Scientific research shows that the daily intake of 2g Alpha-linolenic acid contributes to the maintenance of normal cholesterol levels in the blood.
