Description

What is flaxseed oil?

Flaxseed oil is one of the richest natural sources of omega-3 essential fatty acids. It also contains lignans, small fibrous particles in the flaxseed shell that have disease-fighting properties. Flaxseed oil is used as a daily nutritional supplement because it is rich in the omega-3 alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), which your body partly converts into EPA and DHA (the two chief omega-3 fatty acids found in marine oils). Flaxseed oil has a far higher omega-3 content than other common seed oils: one tablespoon of Credé Flaxseed Oil contains roughtly 7,800mg of ALA.

Credé Flaxseed Oil is cold-pressed and unfiltered, retaining the lignans found naturally in the oil. The oil is packaged in dark glass bottles to protect the oil from exposure to oxygen and light. We used to package our oils in plastic bottles, but extensive testing showed that flaxseed oil oxidised much more quickly in plastic bottles than in glass bottles. This is most likely because plastic bottles are somewhat porous, allowing oxygen molecules to penetrate the bottles over time. As a general rule, it helps to keep flaxseed oil refrigerated, especially once opened, as this slows down the rate of oxidation.
