Dosage: Size: 125 Capsules
• 100% Pure Organic Flaxseed Oil
• Contains Approximately 60% Omega-3 (ALA), Omega-6 (LA) and Omega-9 (OA)
• Most Widely Used Waihi Bush Product for Topping up Omega-3 Levels
• Supports Overall Health and Well-Being
While our bodies evolved on a diet with a 1:1 ratio of Omega-3 to Omega-6, some researchers have estimated that many people consume more than 20 times as much Omega-6 as Omega-3. Long-term imbalance in fatty acid intake results in symptoms of sub-optimal health.
Flax Original can top up your Omega-3 levels if you are experiencing symptoms of Omega-3 deficiency such as:
• Dry skin and hair conditions, soft or brittle nails. The most common symptom is some form of skin problem
• Inflammatory conditions - acne, eczema, psoriasis and arthritis
• Lowered immunity, slow healing and allergic conditions like asthma
• Vision problems and dry eyes
• Learning disorders and behavioral changes like ADD/ADHD
• Mental deterioration, depression and mood swings
• Weakness, low energy and fatigue
• Tingling sensations in arms and legs
• Excessive thirst or frequent urination
• Cardiovascular disorder

This product is a health supplement, and it may not be suitable for some people, and those with a health condition should consult their health care provider before using.
Athletes looking for enhanced performance, endurance and shortened recovery time can find that flax seed oil may help in these areas due to improved oxygen transfer across cell membranes and increased breakdown of lactic acid.
Suggested Use: Adults: 2-5 capsules up to 3 times a day, or as directed by a health care provider.
Warning: DO NOT give capsules to children. Adult use only.
