Linum usitatissimum | Flax seeds are small and have a thick peel that is difficult to break with chewing, making it impossible to take advantage of the nutrients in the oil (Omega 3) inside.¹ The type of fat ingested through food is one of the most important factors when the goal is to maintain healthy fat levels in the body. The latest recommendations for a healthy diet emphasize the presence of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids such as linolenic acid (Omega 3) and linoleic acid (Omega 6). Flaxseed oil, a natural source of linolenic acid (Omega 3), is extracted from linseed seeds – Linum usitatissimum – by cold compression, a fact that preserves its functional activity.
