Pharmacological Action

Flaxseed oil is a rich source of fatty acids. Over 50% of the fatty acid content of flaxseed oil is a form of omega 3 called alpha linolenic acid (ALA). This makes flaxseed oil one of the richest sources of ALA. The body converts small amounts of ALA into eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Some research also suggests that higher serum levels of ALA might also have beneficial cardiovascular and brain effects, and support healthy immune system function.
