Organic Flaxseed Oil contains Omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential fatty acids that the body needs to function and cannot create on its own. Omega-3s are considered important for overall health, plus, healthy hair, skin and nails. Studies show that omega-3s may also reduce inflammation, helping to balance the pro-inflammatory effects of the typical American diet.
Rise-N-Shine's Organic Flaxseed Oil is a plant-based source of omega-3 essential fatty acids. Flaxseed oil is 60% ALA (alpha-linolenic acid), an omega-3 fatty acid which the body can convert into other essential omega-3s, such as EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), which are commonly found in fish oils. Flaxseed oil is free of the toxins often present in fish oils and offers a more sustainable, alternative source of essential omega-3s.
