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. Lamberts quantity – 90 capsules flax seed oil 1000mg.
