As a leading source of Omega-3 fatty acids, Flaxseed Oil is the prized liquid byproduct of the flax plant used for culinary and beauty purposes. This natural oil has been part of ancient medicinal, therapeutic and cosmetic practices for over 13 centuries. It is said to be one of the oldest sources of fiber, cultivated in ancient Egypt and China.
Flaxseed is most popular for its extreme Omega-3 fatty acid content. This three-pronged chain of essential fatty acids is made up of alpha-linolenic (ALA) fatty acid, eiscosapentaenoic fatty acid (EPA) and docosahexaenic fatty acid (DHA). What makes Flaxseed an incredible health resource is its bioavailability of ALA, which helps the body metabolize and absorb EPA and DHA. Without a high concentration of ALA, Omega-3s do not provide the maximum potential health benefits that this incredible fatty acid has to offer. Flaxseed Oil contains a whopping 57% of ALA, one of the highest levels known to humankind.
Omega-3 fatty acids like those found in Flaxseed Oil support a range of internal and external organs. Omega-3s is a known brain booster, which can help maintain normal concentration, alertness and clarity, as well as help prevent degenerative diseases that affect cognition and memory. Omega-3s also aid in heart function as it is believed to lower cholesterol and help regulate the free flow of blood throughout the body. As an excellent source of fiber, Flaxseed Oil can be a natural laxative and useful supplement for digestive disorders because it calms the intestines. Additionally, Omega-3s support the kidneys and promotes hormone balance.
For cosmetic applications, Flaxseed Oil offers amazing benefits for the skin, hair and nails. Omega-3 fatty acids help cell growth and renewal, which is just what skin needs to repair, refresh and rejuvenate for a younger looking appearance. Flaxseed Oil aids in cleaning and purifying pores to reduce blemishes and acne. For dry, cracked skin, hair and nails, Flaxseed oil is an excellent moisturizer that offers soothing relief to calm irritation and heal problem areas. It stimulates thick, luminous hair and nail growth as well.
