MELROSE ORGANIC FLAXSEED OIL 500MIL

Eating the right fats is now essential for optimum health, today many people are now realising that there is a necessity to consume the good fats and reduce the harmful fats. The good fats are the two essential fats: Omega- 3 Alpha Linolenic Acid (ALA) also called super polyunsaturated and Omega-6 Linoleic Acid (LA), more commonly known as polyunsaturated fat.

These fats are essential because our bodies cannot exist without them and most importantly of all they must come from food. A serious deficiency of either results in progressively poorer health. For these reasons, healthy fat is every bit as important as protein, minerals and vitamins. Our eating habits have changed since the arrival of processed food.

Studies show the change in Omega-3 and Omega-6 fat consumption over the past million years. Note the reduced consumption of Omega-3 since 1900. It is true to say that we now consume too much Omega-6 and insufficient Omega-3. To correct this imbalance we need to consume more Omega- 3, (the richest source is Flaxseed Oil with 52-62%) whilst reducing Omega-6.

To reduce Omega-6, avoid purchasing products such as Margarine that emphasise Polyunsaturated and replace with monounsaturated products or products emphasizing Omega-3.
