Flax Oil Fact Sheet

Neil E. Levin, CCN, DANLA

10/26/04

Microbiological / Heavy Metals: below federal and California standards


• No trans-fats or hydrogenated oils;

• No rancidity detected;

• Consumption of Omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. (FDA evaluated the data and determined that, although there is scientific evidence supporting the claim, the evidence is not conclusive.);

• Helps control triglycerides and prevent excessive clotting;

• Promotes anti-inflammatory prostaglandins that also encourage dilation of blood vessels;

• Essential for brain, nerves, cell membranes and blood sugar metabolism;

• Aids in maintaining normal heart rhythm


AMOUNT TO USE: Take 3 softgels 2 to 3 times daily, preferably with meals; 3 softgels contain 1.5 grams (1,500 mg.) of Omega-3 fats


COMPLEMENTARY PRODUCTS: Other supplements used as cardiotonics include Vitamin E, CoQ10, magnesium, antioxidants, garlic, ginger, cayenne pepper, L-carnitine and hawthorn leaf and flower extract.


CAUTIONS: Pregnant and lactating women and people using prescription drugs should consult their physician before taking any dietary supplement. Flax oil should not be used as the only oil in the diet, as it is too high in the ratio of Omega-3 to Omega-6 fats to be the exclusive, long-term dietary oil. The body needs some Omega-6 fats, as well as sterols and fat-soluble antioxidants, in order to have a healthy balance that promotes health. Without that healthy balance of oily nutrients and in the presence of oxidative stresses, large doses of flax oil can become volatile and add to processes that can stimulate cancer. In the presence of a good balance, the opposite is true and cell growth tends to become more normalized.
