Description 

Melrose Flaxseed Oil is unrefined and cold pressed at less than 40ºC. The bottles are flushed with nitrogen prior to filling and immediately capped and placed an opaque carton. This prevents both photon decay and auto oxidation of the oil thereby retaining its unique fresh pressed taste and integrity. Pressed and packaged under the most stringent conditions.

 

Melrose Organic Flaxseed Oil is a uniquely processed flaxseed product for the specific purpose of maintaining all the benefits of its omega essential fatty acid content normally lower quality produced products.

Flaxseed Oil is plant oil rich in Omega-3 fatty acids (ALA). Today, many people are now realising that there is a necessity to consume the good fats and reduce the harmful fats. The good fats are the two essential fats: Omega-3 Alpha Linolenic Acid (ALA) also called super polyunsaturated and Omega-6 Linoleic Acid (LA), more commonly known as polyunsaturated fat. These fats are essential because our bodies cannot exist without them and most importantly of all, they must come from food. A serious deficiency of either results in progressively poorer health. For these reasons, healthy fat is every bit as important as protein, minerals and vitamins. Our eating habits have changed since the arrival of processed food.

Is Flaxseed Oil the same as Fish oil?
Flaxseed Oil is plant oil high in Omega-3 (ALA). Fish eat plants and algae also rich in Omega-3 ALA and then convert the ALA to EPA and DHA in their bodies. Humans can convert ALA to EPA and DHA in their bodies, especially if they reduce their consumption of Omega-6 (polyunsaturated) oils such as safflower and sunflower salad oils and meat
