Flax is a blue flowering plant that grows mainly in Western Canada and is rich in its oil seeds. Flax seed oil is the richest plant derived with Omega-3 fatty acids. These essential Omega-3 fatty acids are required for the health of almost all body systems and yet it cannot be produced by the body. Besides being the best source of Omega-3 fatty acids, flax seed oil is also a good source of Omega-6 and Omega-9 fatty acids.
Essential fatty acids (EFAs) are vital to regulate heart rate, blood pressure, blood clotting, fertility, and plays an important role in immune functions. Deficiencies in fatty acids may link to serious health conditions such as heart attacks, cancer, stroke, diabetes, obesity, etc. Sufficient EFAs must be obtained through daily diet in order to prevent EFAs deficiency. EFAs are needed by the body to produce prostaglandin which is important for all body hormone production, ie: Testosterone level.
Flax seed oil has demonstrated significant success in treating inflammation, blood pressure, diabetes, cardiovascular and health problems.
