they're essential for human growth and development, but not naturally produced by the body. EFA's are important for the production of prostaglandins, which are hormone-like transmitters that help regulate fat metabolism, inflammatory response, hormones, as well as the cardiovascular, immune, and central nervous system.
Flax oil is taken from the seeds of the flax plant. It contains alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), which is the precursor fatty acid for the omega-3 series. In order for the body to use ALA, it must be converted into EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), two nutrients that are constituents in many cells and are particularly abundant in brain and retina tissue, nerve relay stations (synapses), adrenal glands and sex glands.
NSI High Lignan Flax Oil is one-hundred percent organic and provides 20 percent lignans per each tablespoon serving. Lignans are a type of fiber, as well as a type of phytoestrogen, which are hormone-like molecules from plants that may have antioxidant properties and contribute to healthy bone growth and cardiovascular function.
While NSI® High Lignan Flax oil is delicious drizzled on pasta, vegetables, potatoes, popcorn, rice and other grains, it's not recommended for high-temperature cooking.
