Flaxseed is the richest known source of omega-3 fatty acids and lignans; it’s therapeutic benefits are wide-ranging. A-Linoleic Acid (ALA) is the highest unsaturated fatty acid found in Flaxseed, and has been shown to exert anti-inflammatory activities through its conversion to Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA)
Omega 3’s also suppress the production of inflammatory cytokines interleukin, tumor necrosis factor (TNF) and leukotriene’s.
A recent paper also explores the possibility of ALA increasing the tissue concentration of DHA (Docosahexaenoic acid), a special fatty acid stored in the brain. It is considered as food for the brain and can improve visual acuity and enrich brain cell communication and development.
Omega-3 ALA can be converted in our bodies to the longer chain EPA and DHA found in fish oils in the same way that fish eat algae to convert plant ALA to EPA and DHA. The National and Medical Research Council recommend we increase our consumption of omega-3 fats. To reverse the present imbalance we need to increase consumption of oils rich in Omega-3 fatty acids – Flaxseed (52-62%), Fish Oil (30%) and Cod Liver Oil (up to 25%), and reduce Omega-6 oils – Safflower, Sunflower, Sesame, Peanut, most other vegetable oils and fatty meats. The ultimate objective is to have an equal (1:1) ratio of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids. Everyone can enjoy the benefits of Flaxseed Oil.
