Benefits & Recommended for:
- Both men and women are recommended to take from 1.1 to 1.6 g of omega-3 daily, as these fatty acids are often lacking in our North American diet. Flax oil contributes to rebalancing the proportion of omega-3 compared to omega-6 in our diets. Currently, this ratio is about 10:1 to 30:1. Ideally, it should be around 1:1 to 4:1.
- Flax seed oil is the best source of alpha linolenic acid (ALA), the only vegetable omega-3. Other omega-3, such as DHA and EPA, come from fish oils. ALA is the health alternative for vegans or those that do not well tolerate fish oil.
- All AG Natural Health omega products have been tested for contaminants (lead, mercury, bacteria, PCBs, etc.) and have passed pharmaceutical quality and purity standards.
