Flax seed is a rich source of EFAs (essential fatty acids), which are needed for optimal health. One such EFA found in flax seed is a key Omega 3 fatty acid called alpha-linolenic acid or simply ALA. This particular Omega 3 can be converted into larger Omega 3’s as those found in oily fish (EPA and DHA to be exact).
Omega 3 ‘s such as DHA and EPA have proven heart health benefits both in blood pressure and also in maintaining normal levels of triglycerides, which are fats found in the blood.
Flax seed is used as a part of the Muscle Maintenance product.
