Country of Origin: New Zealand
Waihi Bush Flaxseed Oil is produced from organic, New Zealand grown flax
Made from 100% pure cold pressed flax seed oil, great-tasting Waihi Bush Flax Original is a widely used New Zealand favourite for topping up Omega-3 levels.
While our bodies are evolved on a 1:1 ratio of Omega-3 to Omega-6, researchers have shown that many people consume more than 20 times more Omega-6 than Omega-3! This deficiency of essential Omega-3 fatty acids results in the symptoms of sub-optimal health, including low immunity, vision problems, dry skin and hair, low energy and fatigue, learning problems, mood swings and depression.
Waihi Bush Flax Seed Oil has 61% Omega-3 alpha linolenic acid (ALA), and also contains 17% Omega-6 linoleic acid (LA) and 13% monounsaturated Omega-9 oleic acid.
Omega-3 fatty acids have been associated with reduced risk of cardiovascular disease. Studies have found that the Omega-3 in flax seed oil, alpha linolenic acid showed positive results in these areas:
Protection against arrhythmia, a common cause of sudden cardiac death
Reduction of LDL cholesterol, a risk factor for atherosclerosis
Reduction of inflammation, a risk factor for atherosclerosis
Protection against heart attack and stroke
Possible beneficial effect on high blood pressure
