This oil is the finest source of cold pressed flaxseed oil and are certified organic by the Washington State Department of Agriculture.  They are the richest and purest source of the essential omega-3 fatty acids -- alpha-linolenic acid.  The flaxseed oil is extracted from certified organically grown flaxseeds by an expeller press, a cold extraction method that safeguards the special long chain fatty acids from excessive heat.  It is protected from light and oxygen during both extraction and encapsulation.


Jarrow Formulas Certified Organic Flaxseed Oil is a product of Omega Nutrition, the leading specialist in cold extraction of seed oils, using the exclusive Omegaflo process.  Omegaflo Flaxseed Oil is unrefined and contains all the natural constituents found in fresh flaxseed oil.

Dose:  Dr. Udo Erasmus, Author of "Fats that Heal, Fats That Kill," suggest we take at least an ounce per day of omega 3 oils which equates to about 9 softgels.  Flax seed Oil has a 3:1 ratio of omega 3 to 6. The idea is to create a healthy balance of oils (EFAs - essential fatty acids) in your body.  By consuming flax seed oil, you'll be correcting the balance in favor of omega 3 -- preferably bringing the total balance to 2:1 in favor of the omega 3 fatty acids.  It's very difficult to eliminate omega 6 oils from our diet since they are found in high amounts in almost everything we eat.  Margarine, shortening, heated oils, most nuts, animal fats, chips, salad dressings and many other food products are all high in omega 6 oils.

As recommended by Dr. Udo Erasmus, the author of several books on fatty acids, states "In the beginning, you may want to start with smaller amounts and gradually increase to optimum levels which is approximately 1 tablespoon per 50 pounds of body weight; especially if you have a history of being on a low fat or a no fat diet, or if your liver is weak."  and he continues "We should use oils rich in omega 3 and omega 6 fats (2:1 ratio) and should be made and stored under protection from light, oxygen and heat.  I have found that about 15ml per 25 kg of body weight (about one Tablespoon for 50 lbs) is optimum, but as little as 5-10 ml per day has health benefits."

One tablespoon equates to about 9 capsules per day (preferably in divided doses).  You can mix the oil in protein shakes, salads, pancakes, fruit smoothies, etc.  The possibilities are endless.

Most people use the flaxseed oil capsules when traveling or take them to work for convenience.  Space your dose throughout the day since the liver handles the digestion of fats better when taken in divided doses.

Note:  It is important to keep flax seed oil out of light and refrigerate it once it is received.
