Waihi Bush Flax Original


Waihi Bush Flax Origonal Organic Flaxseed oil is a great way to supplement the whole family with omega 3. Because it is plant based it has a better effect on the environment than Fish and Krill oils. It is also cheaper per ml and has less tendency to oxidize inside the bottle than the fish oils and it tastes better. It is much more efficient to use Flaxseed oil t o prevent 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 and 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 sources of omega 3 which makes Flaxseed oil one of the best ways to get this important nutrient. We think the Waihi bush oils are one of the best produced and they have done all of the relevant tests to show the quality of their oils are high. 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.
