Benefits of Nature’s Sunshine Flax Seed Oil:
- Vegetable Omega 3, 6 & 9 fatty acids.
- Precursor to prostaglandins.
- Immune system support.
Flax seed oil is an excellent source of heart-healthful fatty acids while lignans help boost immunity and support breast and prostate health.
How It Works:
Several scientific studies show that consumption of omega-3 essential fatty acids (EFAs) can benefit good health. Flax Seed Oil is a rich source of EFAs, including linoleic acid. Fatty acids are termed “essential” because the body cannot manufacture them. Flax seed oil is a convenient pant-source alternative to fish oils. The body produces prostaglandins— precursors to hormones and other compounds. Some of these initiate beneficial reactions while others produce negative effects. An improper balance of EFAs in the diet can lead to increased production of the “bad” prostaglandins. Flax Seed Oil with Lignans provides the ideal ratio of omega-3, omega-6 and omega-9 EFAs required to maintain the necessary balance between good and bad prostaglandins. Lignans are phytoestrogens that provide powerful benefits, including boosting the immune system and maintaining hormone balance.

Description: Flax Seed Oil with Lignans [Circulatory, Immune]. Several scientific studies show that consumption of omega-3 essential fatty acids (EFAs) can benefit the heart. Flax Seed Oil is a rich source of these EFAs. It also contains lignans-substances known to stimulate immune activity-and linoleic acid, another essential fatty acid. These two fatty acids are termed “essential” because the body cannot manufacture them. EFAs are precursors to prostaglandins.
Until recently, experts believed the best sources of omega-3 were fish oils. While fish oils are a good source, flax seed oil contains twice as much omega-3 essential fatty acids as fish oil products, without the fishy aftertaste. Each softgel capsule contains omega-3, omega-6 and omega-9 essential fatty acids plus lignans.
Take 1-2 softgels with a meal three times daily.
Also available in a liquid for those who desire an easy way to get a greater concentration. One tablespoon equals approximately 14 softgels. Take 1 tablespoon one to two times daily.
