What is it?
Flax Seed Oil is regulated as a food in New Zealand and Australia. It keeps you healthy and vibrant as part of a balanced diet.

Because the goodness of pure, fresh, cold pressed, unrefined, extra virgin flax seed oil is enriched with blackcurrant seed and evening primrose seed oils, this blend has a fatty acid profile that includes five important polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fatty acids.

From flax seed oil we have the primary Omega-3 alpha linolenic acid (ALA), the primary Omega-6 linolenic acid (LA) and the monounsaturated Omega-9 oleic acid. Blackcurrant seed oil contributes the secondary Omega-3 stearidonic acid (SDA) and the secondary Omega-6 gamma linolenic acid (GLA). We add evening primrose seed oil to top up the GLA. It is easier for your body to utilise these secondary Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids because no conversion is required.

SDA and GLA are the building blocks used by your body to produce 'good' prostaglandins - those with anti-inflammatory and anti-clotting effects.

This wide range of naturally occurring fatty acids is what makes flax boost so special.
Why use it?
    * Some health problems can impair our ability to convert ALA and LA to the secondary Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids. flax boost is therefore advised for people with stress, poor diet, vitamin/mineral deficiency, high alcohol intake, exposure to toxic chemicals, for smokers, and for people with illnesses such as hormone imbalance, infection, allergy, cardiovascular disease, cancer or diabetes
    * GLA has been shown to bring improvement in PMS, rheumatoid arthritis, eczema, asthma, cardiovascular disease, ADD/ADHD, osteoporosis, diabetic neuropathy, multiple sclerosis and as an adjunct to cancer treatment

In short, flax boost should be the first choice for anyone wanting to ensure intake of a full range of Omega-3 and Omega-6 essential fatty acids.
