Flaxseed Oil is nature's richest source of vital, vegetable-based Omega-3s, which is an essential fatty acid. The key word to remember here is "essential," meaning that that it cannot be made by the body and must be obtained from your diet. Fatty acids play an important role in providing an energy source for the body.
Top quality Flaxseed Oil 1000mg is derived from 100% organic flax, which means it is free from chemicals, pesticides and herbicides, and it's extracted without solvents, using a cold process to preserve the chemical structures of the fatty acids.

Flaxseed Oil is a Rich Source of Fiber, Vitamins and Minerals
Flaxseed Oil also contains Omega-6 and Omega-9 essential fatty acids, B Vitamins, Potassium, Lecithin, Magnesium, Fiber, Protein and Zinc. In addition, it provides approximately 50% more Omega-3 oils than fish oil, making Flaxseed Oil the perfect Omega-3 choice for vegetarians and everyone interested in optimum health and nutrition.
Flaxseed oil capsules are a vegetarian source of omega-3 fatty acids. Unlike animal sources of this nutrient, however, flaxseed oil contains a type omega-3 fatty acid called alpha-linolenic acid. Your body must first convert ALA into eicosapentaenoic acid, or EPA, and docosahexaenoic acid, or DPA. These two omega-3 fatty acids are naturally found in fish oil.
Proper intake of Omega-3 fatty acids is essential to your health. Unfortunately, the typical people's diet, which is low in fish consumption and rarely includes flaxseeds, does not provide sufficient amounts of this essential fat, making Omega-3 supplementation an important part of a healthy lifestyle.
Not only do flaxseeds provide heart-healthy Omega-3s, they also ensure a rich source of Lignans, a specialized type of fiber.
Flaxseed is the most abundant source of Lignans, boasting up to 800 times more than other foods
