Plant source of Omega-3, 6, 9
ESSENTIAL FATTY ACIDS NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENT
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.
Wellness Concept Flax-1000 had added in milled Flaxseed to our flaxseed oil to increase lignans content. Lignans are one of the major classes of phytoestrogens, which act as antioxidants. Lignans have received a lot of attention because of its anti-oxidant and cancer-preventing properties especially in relation to breast and colon cancers. Besides anti-tumor properties, lignans also have anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral properties.
DID YOU KNOW
Flax seed oil contains high essential fatty acids and generations of people have used it for its health benefits. These fragile essential fatty acids are highly unsaturated and can rapidly become oxidized upon exposure to light and oxygen.
Hence, flax seed oil should be cold pressed below 40˚C in order to preserve the freshness of the essential fatty acids into a softgel. It should not be refined, filtered, bleached or deodorized. In addition, this essential oil should be kept away from light and oxygen.
Why Should We Consider Supplementing With Wellness Concept FLAX-1000?
Flax Seed Oil is one of the richest sources of Omega-3 EFAs.
It has 57% more Omega-3 Fatty Acids than fish oils.
Our bodies are unable to produce the essential dietary fatty acids (EFAs) contained in Flax Seed Oil that we need. In order to gain these, we must consume this natural substance through dietary or supplementary sources.
Commercial refinement of food and oils have almost
eliminated EFAs from our food chain.
Surveys indicate that 80% of the population are EFAs deficient.
EFAs are needed by the body to produce prostaglandin
which is important for all body hormone production,
ie: Testosterone level.
WHAT IS PROSTAGLANDIN ?
The body takes fatty acids from Omega 3 and Omega 6 and transform them into powerful substances called prostaglandins. Prostaglandins are used by every tissue cell and organ in the body to regulate and control. When something needs to be done the body will take some fatty acids, turn them into prostaglandins and get the job done. i.e. movements of calcium and other substances, dilation and contraction, inhibition and promotion of blood clotting, regulation of secretions including digestive juices and hormones, control of fertility and sexual relationships.
As such, our body requires a good balance of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids so that it can use prostaglandins to fine tune the work that needs to be done.
Along with hormones, these are very powerful and complex substances and can be easily influenced by external factors through diet. Our emotions as well as stress can alter and influence the way these natural body chemicals work.

Relying on Pain Killer for Gout Pain
Since 1995, I developed a severe gout problem where I had to constantly take painkiller. I also haven’t had enough sleep due to my work schedules, besides coping with high blood pressure, bowel problems and weight gain issues.
A friend of mine encouraged me to take Flax-1000 from Wellness Concept. I noticed my health problems improved. By taking FiberGreen, it helps in improving my bowel movement and with SUPERFOOD ORGANIC BARLEYGREEN®, it helped with detoxification. I no longer rely on any medication ever since consuming SUPERFOOD ORGANIC BARLEYGREEN® and Flax-1000. Within the past one and a half years, I’ve slimmed down from 89 kg to 79 kg. Thank you, Wellness Concept!
