Taking care of your fatty acid needs during pregnancy and breast feeding
What is it?
Flax Seed Oil is regulated as a food in New Zealand and Australia. It keeps you healthy and vibrant as part of a balanced diet.
This delicious blend of pure, fresh, cold pressed brown and golden flax seed oil is enriched with blackcurrant, pumpkin, coconut and evening primrose seed oils. It thus includes the five important polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fatty acids and lauric acid, all in the right balance to give your pregnancy the very best start.
Because a woman on the average modern diet will be lacking in Omega-3, this blend provides twice as much Omega-3 as Omega-6 to provide the crucial Omega-3s needed to build a healthy brain and body for the baby. The brain is developed in utero and supplementation with Essential Fatty Acids during this time aids in the "hardwiring" process in the brain of a newborn for things such as vision, feelings, movement and language, it can even help sleeping patterns! The blackcurrant and evening primrose seed oils contribute the secondary Omega-3, stearidonic acid (SDA) and the secondary Omega-6, gamma linolenic acid (GLA), which are easier for your body to utilise because no conversion is required, ensuring your developing baby has the building blocks they need for a healthy brain, eye and nervous system and for general health of all body cells.
The pumpkin seed oil provides phytosterols (which possess anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidation activities) and a wide range of vitamins (E and A) and minerals (selenium, zinc, calcium, copper, iron, manganese). The coconut oil provides lauric acid, which is the main fatty acid in breast milk and contributes to increased metabolic rate/energy levels and healthy skin.
Why use it?
* flax bloom is the product of choice for women who are wanting to become pregnant, are pregnant or are breast feeding.
* If Mum is breast-feeding, baby will derive the benefit through her milk.
Flax bloom is pressed from certified organic seeds of flax (Linum usitatissimum - Linseed) golden flax, pumpkin and coconut. Uncertified blackcurrant and evening primrose seed oils are added. The oil is high quality, extra virgin, unrefined, and containing no toxic substances or cholesterol. The oils are cold pressed in the absence of light, air and reactive metals and packaged in black HDPE plastic to further protect it against light damage.
