HealthViva Flaxseed Oil capsules are an excellent 100% vegetarian source of omega-3, 6 and 9 fatty acids to promote good health and well-being. Omega-3 and 6 fatty acids are essential fatty acids as they cannot be produced by the body and must be supplied through diet or supplements. While our diets are heavily skewed in favour of omega-6 fatty acids, omega-3 fatty acids are crucial for optimal health and active metabolism. Omega-3 fatty acids present in flaxseed oil are helpful in decreasing insulin resistance in people with diabetes. Omega-3 in flaxseed oil has been shown to help treat symptoms of depression and poor memory.
