Lamberts® Flax Seed Oil is an excellent alternative to fish oils as the oil is 50% by weight Alpha-Linolenic Acid and therefore contains almost twice as much Omega 3 per gram of weight than standard strength fish oils.
Alpha-Linolenic Acid is converted by the body into the omega 3 fatty acids EPA and DHA according to its need. Alpha-Linolenic Acid is required in large amounts by the body but modern day diets are often low in this essential nutrient. Lamberts® Flax Seed Oil is cold pressed to ensure that the nutritive qualities are retained and to protect the ALA from oxidation we use opaque capsule shells and add vitamin E as an antioxidant. Our tests on the degree of saturation (a measure of freshness) show that the precious ALA is stable during the shelf life of the product.
