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.
