HERE’S WHY EVERYONE COULD USE MOREFLAXSEED OILIN THEIR DIET!
Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids are important dietary fats that are necessary for your overall health and well-being. Since our bodies can’t produce these essential fatty acids, we must acquire these healthy fats from the food we eat. One of the richest plant-based sources of omega-3 fatty acids is flaxseed oil.
To help you boost your daily intake of essential fatty acids, we’re bringing back our omega-rich Groovy Bee® Organic Virgin Flaxseed Oil. Our lab-verified, food-grade flaxseed oil delivers high-quality fatty acids to support your cardiovascular and immune systems. It is also cold-pressed to retain maximum nutrition.
Groovy Bee® Organic Virgin Flaxseed Oil is vegan, non-GMO, non-China and certified Kosher and organic. It also contains no gluten, preservatives, fillers or additives and is thoroughly lab tested for glyphosate, heavy metals and microbiology.
Flaxseed oil is a concentrated vegetable oil derived from the dried seeds of the Linum usitatissimum plant, one of the oldest cultivated crops in history. Its scientific name – usitatissimum – translates to “very useful,” because every part of the flax plant can be utilized. Flax is also one of the richest natural sources of antioxidants.
Flaxseed oil has a long history of use in Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Since ancient times, people have used this oil to promote both physical and mental endurance, as well as to restore moisture in the body. Flaxseed oil owes its health-promoting properties to its high content of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), such as omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. Flaxseed oil is also highly versatile and can be used as an all-in-one culinary oil, carrier oil and moisturizer.
What are omega fatty acids and why are they important?**
Omega fatty acids, such as omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, are essential polyunsaturated fats that provide numerous health benefits. These dietary fats are essential nutrients because your body cannot produce them on its own. In order to maintain overall health, you need to consume superfoods that contain these essential fatty acids every day.
Omega-3 fatty acids make up an integral part of your cell membranes. They are known to support the optimal functions of your eyes, heart and brain, as well as promote sensible weight management plans.
Omega-6 fatty acids, on the other hand, are known to support healthy energy production and optimal immune and cardiovascular health. These heart-healthy fats can promote healthy cholesterol levels that are already within the normal range.
While fatty fish and fish-based oils are the traditional sources of essential fatty acids, many omega-3 supplements derived from fish are contaminated with mercury and other industrial toxins. Flaxseed oil is not exposed to these contaminants and is naturally rich in healthy fats, making it a clean and versatile vegan source of essential fatty acids.
Flaxseeds consist of around 50-60% alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), one of the most important forms of omega-3 fatty acids. Moreover, flaxseed oil provides significantly higher amounts of ALA than regular ground flaxseed.
With its omega-rich nutritional profile, flaxseed oil makes an ideal plant-based source of healthy fats. Just one tablespoon of organic flaxseed oil provides roughly 7 g of ALA, enough to meet your body's daily ALA needs.
With its impressive nutritional profile, flaxseed oil offers a number of health benefits.

You can also use flaxseed oil as a healthy alternative to butter by drizzling it on rice, toast or potatoes.
When applied topically, the health-promoting components of flaxseed oil can nourish and moisturize your skin. You can either use it on its own as a moisturizer or as a carrier oil for the essential oil of your choice. For healthy, shiny hair, you can use flaxseed oil as a hair mask.
