About Flax Seed Oil
Flax is a plant with seeds filled with flaxseed oil, which contains more than twice as much omega-3 oil as fish oils. Several studies have validated the use of essential fatty acids, such as omega-3s in fish and flaxseed oils, in relieving joint discomfort and mobility. Fatty acids can also help support healthy bone density, energy endurance, a healthy cardiovascular system, and cholesterol levels. There is also evidence to suggest that flaxseed oil can promote IQ, improve behavior, and enhance focus in children.
About Omega-3s Generally, people receive adequate amounts of the omega-6 fatty acids, but their diets often lack in omega-3 fatty acids. The average American's diet--which is often filled with fast foods and prepackaged meals containing high amounts of saturated fat, cholesterol, and trans fats--causes cell membranes to become stiff. This is in stark contrast to the healthy, fluid membranes of a person consuming optimal levels of omega-3 fatty acids, and may compromise overall health and wellness.
When it comes to children, learning specialists now believe omega-3 fatty acid deficiency is associated with childhood behavioral problems. Although omega-3 fatty acids are available in some types of seafood such as wild salmon, mackerel, and sardines, many children -and adults who are picky or have dietary restrictions--simply will not consume those species of fish. Flaxseed, which can be inconspicuously incorporated into meals, is a good alternative. Flaxseed oil may be used in baking, salad dressings, and smoothies, as well as many other tasty dishes that the whole family can enjoy. You may even find that Omega Swirl Flax Oil with its fruity taste is easily accepted by your children, either taken straight or drizzled over warm cereals or toast.
