*Concentrated source of omega-3 fatty acids Pure Encapsulations Flax Seed Oil is certified organic and cold pressed, a process that helps preserve the oil's health-promoting constituents. Alpha-linolenic acid, or ALA, is the main omega-3 fatty acid in flax seed oil and can be converted into eicosapentaenoic acid, or EPA, in the body, supporting healthy prostaglandin activity and cardiovascular function. High in omega-3 fatty acids, flax seed oil is also a source of other health-promoting fatty acids. Together, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids are supportive for immune system function, cell membrane integrity, joint function and lipid metabolism. Furthermore, this flax seed oil is specially processed to contain higher levels of naturally occurring lignans, the phytoestrogen compound multiple studies have indicated may help support breast, prostate, intestinal and cardiovascular health. Flax seed oil, containing omega-3 fatty acids and constituents including lignans, provides support for a number of physiological functions, including cardiovascular health.
