Barlean’s Flax Oil
Revitalize Your Body with Barlean’s Flax Oil
Barlean’s High Lignan Flax Oil is rich in nutrients, specifically Omega-3 fatty acids. We as humans are in need of these fatty acids for energy, healthy cholesterol support, blood glucose levels, joint mobility, and bone density. Flax seed oil also contributes to beautiful and healthy skin, hair and nails.
Barlean’s gently presses their flaxseed oil from organic, North American grown, non-genetically modified flax seeds. The oil contains lignans, an extremely nutritious class of plant phytonutrients that have been studied and found to play a role in cardiovascular and hormonal health.
This award-winning flax oil from Barlean’s Organic Oils is the best-selling flaxseed product on the market, according to AC Nielson Market Data. The company is proud of the fact that regular consumers of their oil say it is the best tasting flax oil out there. One of the reasons it tastes great, is the fact that Barlean’s stamps each bottle with a 6-month expiration date, ensuring that the oil does not sit on the shelf too long. Flax seed oil is a food product, and the longer it sits, the less nutrition it can offer.
Barlean’s sells their organic flaxseed oils and fish oil in 8, 12, 16 or 32 ounce bottles, or in softgels, for those who don’t want to drink the oil. The soft gels are available in 100 count or 250 count. The oil has a rich, nutty flavor that many people find enjoyable. Barlean’s recommends adding the oil to salad dressings, yogurt, cereal, cottage cheese, or smoothies. Or the oil can be taken alone by the spoonful. Barlean’s supplement information recommends 1 to 2 tablespoons daily, or 3 to 9 soft gels per day.
The oil is in black plastic bottles, which blocks out all light, keeping the oil untarnished. There are also many blends for different tastes and needs. Total Omega is a blend of flax seed oil, borage oil and fish oil – a superior source for Omega-3, 6, and 9 nutrients. The Essential Woman Blend has flax oil, evening primrose oil, and soy isoflavones to help regulate female hormones and beautify skin, hair and nails. Omega Man Blend is flaxseed oil with pumpkin seed oil and phospholipids to help men of all ages preserve healthy prostate tissue, athletic endurance, heart health and youthful appearance. Lignan Omega Twin is a flax oil combined with borage oil to offer Omega 3, 6, and 9 for complete fatty acid nutrition.
Most americans who eat an average diet do not get enough fatty acids. Through the history of food commercialization and wheat milling, Omega-3 oils have been taken out of grains. Omega-3 oils have been studied and found to help reduce eye problems, mood disorders, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, arthritis, joint pain, cardiovascular disorders and skin ailments. These oils and oil blends can be found nationwide at health food stores, or ordered directly from the Barlean’s Organic Oils website. Barlean’s is leading the way with many healthful options to get these oils back into our diets.
