Flax Seed Oil is a rich balanced source of essential fatty acids. These beneficial fats play important roles in supporting brain, nerve, glandular and eye functions. In addition, they are involved in the transport and metabolism of cholesterol and triglycerides.
Essential fatty acids are further metabolized into hormone-like substances in the cell known as prostaglandins. Prostaglandins are involved in the regulation of many important physiological functions.*
As a dietary supplement, take one tablespoon (14 mL) 1 to 2 times daily preferably with meals. Suitable in salad dressing oil, sauces, peanut butter, yogurt and protein shakes; it can also be used in place of butter on rice, potatoes or toast.
KEEP REFRIGERATED. In order to retain freshness, keep the bottle tightly closed and refrigerated. For maximum freshness, consume within 6-8 weeks after opening.
