The benefits of Flax Seed Oil

Flax seed oil is nature’s richest vegetable source of Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs). Omega-3 and Omega-6 in the right proportions.

Omega-3 and Omega-6 EFAs are critical to total body health. These fatty acids are incorporated into cell membranes throughout the body and the balance of these fatty acids determine how the cells function. When the cell membranes are damaged, fatty acids are released. Released Omega-6 acids are a hundred times more likely to promote inflammation than are Omega-3 fatty acids. Inflammation is beneficial if a pet has an infection it needs to fight. Most pets, however, have health problems caused by too much inflammation (flea allergies, arthritis, auto-immune diseases) so they generally benefit from supplements with higher concentrations of Omega-3 fatty acids.


Roots All Natural Flax Oil

Roots All Natural Flax Oil has a higher concentration of Omega-3 fatty acids and a relatively low, but important concentration of Omega-6 fatty acids.

The advantage of Roots All Natural Flax Oil is that it can be added to your pet’s food for overall health and for the treatment of illnesses without the use of drugs.
