Flax Seed Oil is a very rich source of alpha-linolenic acid (LNA). LNA is an omega-3 fatty acid that can be converted by the body into eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), the more biologically active omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3's are known as essential fatty acids (EFA’s) because they cannot be produced by humans and therefore must be obtained from the diet. Omega-3 fatty acids are critical for the maintenance of cell membrane fluidity and healthy cellular signaling. In addition, omega-3 fatty acids are known to support balanced immune and inflammatory responses.
