Flax seed oil is derived from the seeds of the flax plant, Linum usitatissimum, and is known to be a source of the omega-3 fatty acid, alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). Omega-3 fatty acids are required for a variety of essential body functions, from proper blood flow to brain development. These long chain fatty acids are integral components of tissues and organ systems throughout the body, including the heart, skin, joints, eyes and immune system.
