Omega 3-6-9 Flaxseed Oil by Osavi

Want to keep your cardiovascular system in good shape? Ensure an adequate supply of omega 3-6-9 essential fatty acids, and one of the best sources of these health-promoting acids is flaxseed oil. Reach for it and see how it can improve your wellbeing.

Cold-pressed flax seed oil (Linum usitatissimum) is a source of many beneficial components for the body. It is characterised by a high content of omega 3-6-9 essential fatty acids, which are important for, among other things, the proper functioning of the cardiovascular system. Flaxseed oil has been shown to increase the concentration of cardioprotective omega-3 fatty acids [1] and to affect the metabolic profile by contributing to a significant reduction in insulin levels and CRP (C-reactive protein, an acute phase protein) levels, high levels of which are indicative of ongoing inflammation in the body. Linseed oil has also been attributed with antioxidant properties, i.e., against the proliferation of free radicals [2]. Regular consumption of flaxseed oil also affects the condition of the skin. It has been shown to contribute to a significant decrease in epidermal sensitivity, prevent water loss, reduce skin roughness and flakiness and increase skin smoothness and hydration [3].

A deficiency of essential fatty acids - omega-3 or omega-6 - can lead to scaly and inflamed skin. In addition, higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of cardiovascular problems. Alpha-linolenic acid (omega-3) and linoleic acid (omega-6) are considered essential fatty acids, which means they must be obtained from the diet. Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) and linoleic acid (LA) can be found in walnuts and chia seeds, among others, as well as in vegetable oils - soybean, rapeseed and linseed [4]. On the other hand, omega-9 oleic acid (OA) is categorised as a partially essential fatty acid and its main sources are both vegetable and animal oils, e.g.: sesame oil, linseed oil, olive oil, pumpkin seed oil and cod liver oil. It is credited with lowering inflammatory markers in the body [5]. Taking flaxseed oil, which has a high content of omega 3-6-9 essential unsaturated acids, may be helpful in caring for cardiovascular health [6, 7].

Omega 3-6-9, Flaxseed Oil 1000 mg is a supplement containing highly standardised, cold-pressed flaxseed oil. It is rich in essential omega-3 (alpha-linolenic acid - ALA), omega-6 (linoleic acid - LA) and omega-9 (oleic acid - OA) acids. The product comes in the form of a soft capsule and is available in two versions - for 2 or 4 months of supplementation. One capsule per day provides up to 1,000 mg of flaxseed oil, min. 500 mg ALA, min. 110 mg LA and min. 110 mg OA.
