Flax seed oil is an important and rich source of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), and Omega 3 series of essential fatty acids. ALA has been in the spot light as of late for its antioxidant powers as well as its ability to keep blood insulin levels in check when carbohydrates are consumed.
So why are Omega 3s so important in todays diet? The diet of modern society consists of a very unbalanced ratio of omega 3s and omega 6s. Americans typically consume far more omega 6s than 3s (processed foods, animal fats, corn oil, etc.). This imbalance increases the risk of cardiovascular disease, stroke, inflammatory diseases, arthritis, diabetes, improper brain function, along with a host of other issues.
