Gaia Cold Pressed Flaxseed Oil 250ml



The term “cold-pressed”, rather than equating to a ‘cold’ press, merely indicates that the press does not utilise thermal elements to artificially increase the temperature beyond the frictional temperature as is commonly done commercially to reduce the oil viscosity even further so as to maximise the yield that can be expressed from the seeds.


Use as a dose or as a salad dressing – initially up to a teaspoon daily for a few weeks and thereafter 15-35 drops daily, depending on the amount of competing oil and fat in the diet this to fill a major nutritional gap in the natural food chain. The dietary n-3 fatty acids in high integrity flaxseed oil can confer a novel approach to improving arterial function (Nestel P, et al, Arterioscler Thromb Vasc Biol, 17(6), 1997), has anti-inflammatory, antithrombotic, anti-arrhythmic, hypolipidemic and vasodilatory properties (Simopoulos A, Am J Clin Nutr, 70(3 Suppl), 1999) and can markedly prevent or reduce the development of hypercholesterolemic atherosclerosis and related heart attacks as well as strokes. (Prasad K, Atherosclerosis, 132(1), 1997), to list but a few benefits over and above basic nutrition.
