What Are Essential Fatty Acids?
There are two essential fatty acids (EFAs) that the body requires for health, but that it cannot manufacture itself. These two EFAs are linoleic and linolenic acids. EFAs have several vital physiological functions. They increase metabolic rate, improve metabolism, increase oxygen uptake and increase energy production. EFA's and their derivatives are components of membranes that surround each cell. Lack of EFA's cause cells to leak, thus allowing beneficial substances to leak out and harmful substances to sneak in. EFA's are required for the transport and metabolism of cholesterol and triglycerides. They can lower high cholesterol levels by 25% and high triglycerides by 65%. In addition, they are required for the normal development of the brain and brain function in the adult. Finally, the body makes hormone-like substances called prostaglandins from EFA's. Prostaglandins regulate arterial muscle tone, sodium excretion through the kidneys, platelet stickiness, inflammatory response and immune functions. The best source of EFA's is flaxseed oil.
For all individuals, especially those who need immune boosting benefits and are concerned about preventing cancer.
This Lignan rich product provides all of the benefits of regular flax oil gelcaps plus a few more.
Flax oil gelcaps contain a 3:1 ratio of Omega-3 to Omega-6 fatty acids.
Supplementation with flax oil gelcaps reverses the deficiency of Omega-3 found in 80% of the American population.
It contains plant lignans which are soluble and insoluble fibers. The lignans in flax are the richest source found in nature at 100 times the density of other sources such as wheat, oats and barley.
The lignans found in flax oil are classified as phenolic compounds. They form fibrous chains which act as toxin repositories for insoluble and spent wastes in the intestinal tract and colon.
Research has shown that patients with breast or colon cancers experience a dramatic lowering of lignan content in bodily wastes. This evidence suggests that phenolic lignan compounds act to assist in modulating immunological responses and detoxification of multiple metabolic processes.
