Omega NZ Flaxseed Capsules


Omega NZ Flaxseed oil is a great way to supplement the whole family with omega 3 if you prefer to take capsules. Because it is plant based it has a better effect on the environment than Fish and Krill oils. It is also cheaper and better on the environment than the fish oils. It is much more efficient to use Flaxseed oil to prevent inflammation than to treat inflammation {once inflammation has set in the Fish oils are more useful therapeutically}. The benefits of this type of omega 3 {ALA} are anti-inflammatory meaning that the body makes its own anti-inflammatory chemicals from the conversion of ALA into important protective prostaglandins. These healthy fats also protect the cardiovascular system, cellular membrane function and help reduce cholesterol and blood pressure.

Omega 3 fatty acids are essential to get through the diet as the body cannot manufacture these fatty acids from the conversion of sugar into fat – so we must get them through our diet. There are very few plant sources of omega 3 which makes Flaxseed oil one of the best ways to get this important nutrient. For more advice about whether to use Flaxseed oil or Fish oils please consult one of our practitioners at the Apothecary in store or in Clinic.
