Info: Available as a 500 ml Liquid in a Bottle or as 100 Softgel Capsules

Flaxseed oil may be one of the healthiest edible oils around due to its high omega-3 content, whose benefits may include reduced inflammation, cholesterol, heart disease, and constipation; and improved brain development, cardiovascular system, and hair, skin and nail health. As a food oil, its nutty flavour makes a welcome addition to dips, salad dressings, toppings, or smoothies, or if you prefer, it can go 'straight down the hatch' as softgel capsules.

Product Notes:

Flaxseed oil has a very high concentration of ALA, which is one form of the essential fatty acid Omega-3 which our livers can then convert to the EPA and DHA forms that people usually turn to fish oils for. Flax is of course a plant rather than a fish, which is produced as a highly sustainable crop with virtually no negative impact on the environment and without acquiring heavy metals or other toxins, and many find it a far more neutral or even pleasing taste, and it can be seamlessly integrated with your diet in many more ways.

Or for those who truly don't care for incorporating more food oils into their diet, there are softgels, which spare you the mouth feel and taste of the flax seed oil and hermetically seal it to protect it from oxidation and contamination.

The price of the liquid version may vary in-store. Related product: Also see Aviva Flax Hull Lignans.
