Healthwell Flax Seed Oil is vegetable-based and perfect for those eating a vegetarian or plant-based diet and wanting to easily add the important fatty acids.

Flax seed oil is not merely a supplement for internal use, but is believed to also have positive effects on, for example, irritated skin, thanks to the vitamin E contained in the oil. Vitamin E has antioxidant properties that protect the skin's cells against oxidative stress. Healthwell Flax Seed Oil comes in a dark glass container that lets in only minimal light, ensuring product life and efficacy.
Liquid omega-3 for vegans
Omega-3 is a vital supplement in the body, contributing to better health. The main source of omega-3 can be found in oily fish, such as salmon and krill. This essential nutrient is considered to be a contributing factor to normal cardiovascular health. EPA and DHA are fatty acids that, together with linoleic acid and alpha-linolenic acid, are good for the heart and vessels. In addition, EPA and DHA are promote vision and normal blood cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Found specifically in flax seed oil, alpha-linolenic acid is an omega-3 fatty acid that the body is unable to produce on its own. Omega-6 and -9 are also found in Healthwell Flax Seed Oil. These are important for the formation of new cells and can contribute to improved blood lipid levels.
Healthwell Flax Seed Oil contains vitamin E that protects polyunsaturated fatty acids from rancidity. The vitamin E in flax seed oil also contributes to longer shelf life than, for example, fish oil, as fish oil does not contain vitamin E naturally. Also contained in flax seed oil is vitamin K, which is a very important vitamin helping the blood to coagulate at open wounds. Vitamin K is essential for normal bone health and also helps to regulate the use of calcium in the body.
