What is Flaxseed Oil 1,000mg?

  • Suitable for Vegans
  • Gelatin Free
Our high strength Flaxseed Oil has been formulated by expert nutritionists to contain 1,000mg flaxseed oil, a vegetarian source of omega 3. 

Flaxseed Oil is rich in alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), the only essential omega 3 fatty acid. Essential fatty acids are so called because they cannot be manufactured in the body. Each Healthspan Flaxseed Oil capsule contains 620mg of ALA, which can contribute to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels.*

Ideally our intake of omega 3 would come from a balanced diet with plenty of oily fish. However, for those who choose not to eat oily fish, or those who simply dislike the taste, achieving adequate levels of the more complex omega 3 fatty acids DHA and EPA through diet alone can be difficult. In this case our experts would recommend to consider Veg-Omega 3 which contains these beneficial fatty acids from a non-fish algae source.

*The beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 2,000mg ALA.

Flaxseed oil capsules really do help my dry eyes as when I stopped using them my eyes felt grittier.
They do the job of keeping my eyes healthy and moist.

21 February 2017

Having used Flaxoil capsules for several months, I find that my dry eyes have improved enormously; as suggested by research, and anecdotal evidence. And Healthspan is the only brand that offers gelatine free capsules in the large size, at such great value.
