Flaxseed oil is the best source of all plant oils of alpha linolenic acid (omega-3). Alpha linolenic acid and linoleic acid are important building materials for cell membranes. Alpha linolenic acid also helps to maintain the normal cholesterol level of the blood. A high cholesterol level is a risk factor in coronary and vascular diseases. A beneficial effect can be gained by consuming 2 g of alpha linolenic acid per day.
Of the fatty acids of the linseed oil, approx. 93 % is unsaturated fat. Replacing saturated fat with unsaturated fat has a beneficial effect on cholesterol levels and blood pressure.
