Omega-3 rich fatty acid formula for optimal health.

Adding foods that provide omega-3 fatty acids to your diet is important, and Flax Seed Oil from Genestra is a supplement that contains the essential fatty acids that work together to omega-3 - an important alpha linolenic acid vital to health and wellness. Flax oil is the richest plant source of omega-3 and is derived from flax seeds, which are then pressed to release the beneficial oil. Genestra’s Flax Seed Oil capsules are easy to swallow, effective, and a perfect fish oil alternative for vegetarians or vegans.

  • Provides 1100 mg of ALA per daily dose
  • Includes 300 mg of LA per daily dose
  • Flax is one of the greatest plant sources of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), an omega-3 fatty acid, and also contains linolenic acid (LA), an omega-6 fatty acid.1 ALA is metabolized to EPA and DHA by elongase and desaturase enzymes. As these enzymes also compete to metabolize LA through elongation and desaturation reactions, an intake ratio of LA to ALA that is less than 4:1 best allows for the conversion of ALA into long chain omega-3 fatty acids.
  • Daily supplementation with flaxseed oil for over eight weeks significantly increased the levels of EPA and DPA, a DHA precursor and likely storage form of EPA, in both the erythrocyte membranes and plasma of adults.
  • Fatty acids are also necessary for the proper structure and function of the skin, including the protection against environmental factors and the loss of electrolytes and water.
  • Decreased levels of these fatty acids have been associated with impaired epithelial cell function, including the loss of moisture in the skin.
  • ALA further contributes to maintaining optimal health through its role in maintaining platelet and endothelial cell function. ALA is most bioavailable in flax oil when compared to milled or whole flax seeds.
