What are "Omega-3" and "Omega-6" fatty acids?
Omega-3 and omega-6 are families of essential fatty acids used to make local hormones that control the local functioning of tissues throughout the body. The omega-6 fats tend to have pro-inflammatory effects, and the omega-3s tend to have non-inflammatory effects. We need to have a balanced intake of mega-6s and omega-3s for optimal health. The essential fatty acids include the omega-6 fatty acids, (as found in most common vegetable oils and products from livestock animals raised on grain, and the omega-3 fatty acids, as found in flaxseed oil, wild ocean fish, wild game, products from livestock raised on green vegetation, and fish oil). Most people consume too much omega-6 fats and insufficient omega-3s. Therefore, we need to decrease the intake of omega-6 sources and increase the intake of omega-3 sources.

What is flax oil and is it the same as flaxseed oil?
Yes, flaxseed oil and flax oil are the same. The seeds of the flax plant are pressed to obtain the nutrient rich oil that they contain. Flax oil is classified as a polyunsaturated vegetable oil. Flax oil is unique in this category, because it is the richest source of omega-3 as well as containing omega-6.

Barlean's Commitment to Non-GMO
Barlean's was the first flax oil manufacturer verified by the Non-GMO Project. The Non-GMO Project is North America's only independent verification for products made according to rigorous best practices for GMO (Genetically Modified Organism) avoidance. Barlean's flax oil, lignan flax oil and cold-milled flaxseeds are in compliance with these Non-GMO Project standards, which include strict traceability and segregation requirements.

Barlean's flaxseeds and flax oils are 100% certified organic and have always been sourced from non-genetically modified crops. According to Barlean's Owner, Bruce Barlean,"Flaxseeds should be unrefined, unfiltered and unadulterated. Science can't predict with 100% certainty what cause and effect genetically altering foods will do to the health long-term. Why then wouldn't they keep this naturally nutrient-rich, raw food just the way nature intended?"

2-4 Tbsp daily. Mixes easily in water or juice. Excellent when used as a topping for yogurt, salads, breakfast cereals and used in blended smoothie beverages. May be used as a substitute for traditional yet nutrient-deplete fiber sources. Refrigerate after opening to preserve freshness.
