ASSISTS WITH: *Providing EFAs Flax-O-Mega capsules are cold-pressed from certified organic flax seeds to provide Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) for optimal health. Omega-3 and omega-6 EFAs are necessary for the normal functioning of every cell, tissue, gland and organ. Since the body cannot make EFAs on its own, they must come from foods or dietary supplements. Because omega-6s are found in a wide variety of foods, most people consume adequate amounts of this essential fatty acid. In fact, many people overindulge in foods that contain omega-6s. These items include polyunsaturated vegetable oils made from safflower, sunflower, soybean, sesame, pumpkin, wheat germ, corn, cottonseed, walnut, and wheat germ. Seeds and nuts are rich in omega-6s and so are most meats, fast foods, and snack foods. Omega-3s are more likely to be lacking in the average person’s diet, because there are relatively few foods that contain these important foundational fats. Dietary sources include oils from fish as well as some plants and nuts. Omega-3s are found in oil from halibut, salmon, sardines, mackerel and tuna. Vegetable oils, such as soybean, olive, canola and flax seed contain alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), a type of omega-3 fatty acid. Flax oil is one of the richest sources of omega-3s. It is also less expensive and does not contain environmental toxins as is often the case with fish. The effects of Omega-3 deficiency include: *Low energy *Weakness *Impaired vision and learning *Poor motor coordination *Tingling sensation in limbs *Behavioral changes *High serum triglycerides; high blood pressure; sticky platelets (tendency to form clots in blood vessels) *Water retention (edema) due to inflammation and kidney deterioration *Problems associated with skin, joints, digestion, connective tissue, kidneys and other glands, organs and tissues *Weakened immune response *Mental deterioration *Low metabolic rate *Weight gain. *These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
