Organic Flaxseed Oil

Flaxseed Oil is a yellowish oil derived from the dried ripe seeds of the flax plant. It is obtained by cold-pressing, followed by an optional stage of solvent extraction. Cold-pressed oil without solvent extraction is marketed as flaxseed oil; whereas oil with solvent extraction is marked as linseed oil.

Linseed oil is the most commonly used carrier in oil paint. When used as a wood finish, linseed oil does not cover the surface, but soaks into the pores, leaving a shiny but not glossy surface that shows off the grain. Wood treated with linseed oil can resist denting, and scratches are easily repaired. In addition the wood and oil surface is not as hard as a modern varnish, and it slowly absorbs moisture if allowed to stay wet.

As opposed to linseed oil flaxseed oil can be consumed by human being. As a matter of fact it is a very popular nutritional supplement. It is highly recommended for the general well being and whole body nutrition and is considered to be nature's richest source of omega-3 fatty acids that are required for the health of almost all body systems.

Flaxseed Oil contains omega-6 and omega-9 essential fatty acids, B vitamins, potassium, lecithin, magnesium, fiber, protein, and zinc and also provides approximately 50% more omega-3 oils than what you could get from taking fish oil but without the bad fishy taste.

Some nutritionists, researchers, and scientists believe that it could be the most important health-promoting supplement next to a multi-vitamin. Nearly every system in the body can benefit from the natural properties of flaxseed oil. It is helpful to our immune system, and to our blood pressure. It also supports healthy hair and skin. Flaxseed oil is beneficial for people with allergies, cardiovascular problems, cholesterol levels, eczema, eyesight, weight management, diabetes, and liver problems etc etc.

Flax seed oil can be easily oxidized. When contacting with oxygen, oxygen will break down the oil; and then flaxseed oil will become rancid and emit an unpleasant smell. So the nutritional value of flax seed oil can be reduced considerably if it is exposed to light or oxygen. How do we protect the oil from exposure to either? The answer is after cold pressing flaxseed oil is piped into plastic barrels which are sealed against oxygen and are lightproof. Once the sediments have settled the pure flaxseed oil is siphoned into lightproof packaging. Therefore you will find dark-coloured bottles for flax seed oil.
