Flaxseed oil comes from the seeds of the flax plant (Linum usitatissiumum, L.). Nutrascriptives® Flaxseed oil is organic and cold pressed, to retain nutrients without the use of added and damaging heat. Flaxseed Oil contains both omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids as well as the essential fatty acid, alph-linolenic acid (ALA). Alpha-linolenic acid is the primary omega-3 fatty acid in flaxseed oil and can be converted to both eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Flaxseed oil may provide nutritive support for cardiovascular function and healthy lipid balance.
