Moss Nutrition FLAX OIL ORGANIC is an excellent source of alpha-linolenic acid, an essential omega-3 fatty acid that must be supplied by the diet.
Omega-3 alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) supports health in many ways, beginning with its critical role as a component of healthy cell membranes. ALA is incorporated into the phospholipid bilayer of cell membranes throughout the body, where it enables proper flexibility, fluidity, permeability, and cell membrane-bound enzyme activity.
Alpha-linolenic acid also serves as the biological precursor of two important, longer-chain omega-3 fatty acids: EPA and DHA, which are present in fish oil. EPA and DHA have been shown to directly provide heart-healthy, anti-inflammatory and brain supportive benefits.
The human cardiovascular and immune systems, brain, eyes, hair, nails and skin all depend on an adequate supply of essential fatty acids for health but omega-3 fatty acids are commonly deficient in Western diets. Taking flaxseed oil helps to significantly increase ALA levels and has been studied for numerous benefits including: helping to maintain cholesterol levels that are already within the normal range, helping to support platelet aggregation levels that are already within the normal range, helping to support cartilage and joint function, helping to maintain heart health and helping to support the maintenance of healthy prostaglandin balance.
Research indicates that deficiencies of omega-3 fatty acids may cause a wide range of common symptoms, notably dry skin and scalp, depressed energy levels and issues of metabolic dysregulation. These issues as well as brain and mental function, cardiovascular health and immune system health all may benefit from supplementation with high quality flaxseed oil.
