Flaxseed oil is a rich source of the Omega-3 fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). Some ALA gets converted in the body to EPA and DHA, but this conversion may not be adequate to meet the body’s need for EPA and DHA, therefore, greater amounts of flax are needed to have any benefit.
OmegaXL is an all-natural source of Omega-3 essential nutrients from the green lipped mussel. However, before starting any supplement, it is important to check with your healthcare provider.
For customers who have difficulty swallowing pills/gel caps, we recommend piercing the gel cap with a sterilized pin and squeezing the oil into a liquid, apple sauce, yogurt, or pudding. This will not compromise the effectiveness of OmegaXL.
Yes, eating more fish would be a healthy choice for most Americans, however, data from regulatory agencies suggests that freshwater fish in the United States may contain harmful chemicals due to industrial pollution leading to residues of heavy metals (like mercury) and organchlorine carcinogens (likd PCBs). Ocean fish are more variable with some species likely to be very clean, while others may be highly contaminated. It is difficult to make general guidelines regarding which fish are safe. The alternative way to receive Omega-3 fatty acids is through supplements. OmegaXL is derived from the green lipped mussel from the pristine waters of New Zealand. As one moves up the food chain, more and more toxins can accumulate depending on the diet of the fish. Mussels are near the bottom of the food chain and feed on the plankton that contain the Omega-3 essential fatty acids. A reasonable recommendation would be to eat moderate amounts of fish combined with OmegaXL supplements to ensure an adequate intake of Omega-3 oils.
