Thompson's Flax Seed Oil 1000 provides essential fatty acids are just that - essential for growth and development throughout the human lifecycle. They must be included in the diet of pregnant women, premature infants, full-term infants, children, young adults and elderly adults. Humans, like all mammals cannot manufacture Essential Fatty Acids. A healthy human body uses Omega 3 or Alpha Linolenic Acid (derived from Flaxseed Oil, Salmon, Sardines, and Canola Oil) and Omega 6 Linoleic Acid (derived from Evening Primrose, Sunflower, Safflower Oil) to produce prostaglandins, tiny chemicals responsible for regulating actions in the body such as the widening and narrowing of arteries, the onset of inflammation, clotting of blood, and combatting fever and pain.

Flax Seed Oil is a rich source of valuable Omega 3, providing 60% Alpha Linolenic Acid (Omega 3), 20% Linoleic Acid (Omega 6) and 20% Oleic Acid (Omega 9). Flax was traditionally grown for its fibre, which was woven into linen cloth. Its seeds were used for linseed oil.

Thompson’s Flax Seed Oil is extracted by ‘cold-pressing’, the mechanical extraction of the oil from the seed, at a temperature less than 50 degrees Celsius, before undergoing filtration. No chemicals are added. After filtration the oil is nitrogen blanketed and stored at low temperatures to avoid oxidation. The oil is encapsulated in Non-gelatin capsules providing a well-sealed environment which prevents oxidation and maintains freshness of the oil – this results in a high quality product which is rich in Essential Fatty acids.
 
Flax Seed Oil is beneficial in preventing constipation, aiding the digestion of dietary fats and maintaining general wellbeing. It also promotes healthy skin, hair and nails.

Several clinical trials have proven Flax Seed Oil to be beneficial in assisting to reduce fatty plaque build up on the arteries of the heart by 46%, and in doing so benefiting the health of the cardiovascular system. A second trial shows reduced mental performance after dietary restriction of Omega 3 fatty acids. Yet a third trial shows that dietary supplementation with Flax Seed Oil increases Calcium absorption, bone Calcium and bone density. In other words, it may slow the rate of postmenopausal bone loss in many woman and preserve bone density.

Please Note:
Due to regulations in Australia Thompson's can no longer have
the word “organic” on the label of their Flax Seed Oil.  However please be
aware that Thompson's Flax Seed Oil stills carries organic status.
