Flaxseed Oil
Flaxseed Oil is a rich plant source of essential fatty acids, Omega-3, 6 and 9, which are important for maintaining optimum health. Essential fatty acids are necessary for the production of prostaglandins, hormone-like substances, which are beneficial for cardiovascular health, joint health and skin condition.
Ingredients: Each capsule contains: Organic Flaxseed Oil 1000mg. Providing: Alpha-linolenic Acid (Omega 3) 520mg, Linoleic Acid (Omega 6) 180mg, Oleic Acid (Omega 9) 210mg. The organic, cold-pressed flaxseed oil used in this product is certified by the USDA National Organic Program and ECOCERT SA.
Suggested Use: Adults – Take 1-2 capsules three times daily with food, or as professionally prescribed.
