HIGHER OMEGA-3 CONTENT THAN FISH
The quality of fishing is often lacking nowadays. On the one hand, fish from mass breeding or aquaculture usually have significantly fewer valuable omega-3 fats, and on the other hand, trust in terms of quality has recently decreased. This has brought flaxseed oil back into focus. The flax plant is one of the oldest cultivated plants in human history and has been forgotten due to the industrialization of the food industry and the boom in fish consumption.
However, flax is not only plant-based but also grows regionally. And the most important thing: flax has a much higher omega-3 content than fish. While a fatty fish like salmon or herring only offers 3 grams of omega-3 per 100 grams, 100 grams of flaxseed oil contain around 55 grams of omega-3 fats. In addition, flaxseed oil offers a further bundle of nutrients. Especially noteworthy are plant phenols, which have an antioxidant effect. Or lignans, which are often mentioned by the anti-aging faction.
FLAXSEED OIL - SUPPORTS WEIGHT LOSS
With 55-60 percent omega-3 content, flaxseed oil is a vegan and local supplier with the highest proportion of polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acid.
Omega-3 fatty acids play a major role in metabolism, as they work on a cellular level and control metabolism at the lowest level. The body's energy resources are based on the metabolism of fats. So, our body needs these fatty acids to function effectively. Flaxseed oil is able to naturally support metabolism so that it can burn fat more easily and increase energy production. This is accompanied by an increased oxygen consumption of the cells, which additionally helps to produce more energy and feel an improved well-being.
Flaxseed oil provides many vitamins, minerals, and valuable lignans. Another good side effect of flaxseed oil is that the energy and calories from flaxseed oil are not stored in the body and regular intake also creates a feeling of satiety.
We recommend taking one tablespoon of fresh flaxseed oil daily in yogurt, in muesli or pure.
