Flax seed oil composition and benefits
It is popularly believed that flax seed oil is healthful, easily digestible and versatile tool in the fight against almost all diseases. Consumption of edible flax seed oil has no side effects.
As for the content of unsaturated fatty acids it beats twice as much fish oil: alpha-linoleic acid (OMEGA-3) - 60%, linoleic acid (an omega-6) - 20% oleic acid (OMEGA-9) - 10%, other unsaturated fatty acid - 10%. If OMEGA-6 is found in other vegetable oils, OMEGA-3 in sufficient quantity is only found in fish oil, and above all in flax seed oil. It is especially important for the women.
Let us consider the useful composition of flax seed oil in greater detail, as its value to the human body is due to its rich composition.
Fat: OMEGA-3 (up to 60%), OMEGA-6 (about 20%), OMEGA-9 (about 10%), saturated fatty acids (stearic acid, myristic acid and palmitic acid);

And in addition to above: linamarin, phytosterols, squalene (up to 8%), thioproline, lecithin, beta-carotene.
Despite the considerable list of components that compose natural flax seed oil, yet special value is a complex of poly- and monounsaturated fatty acids. Alpha-linoleic acid (OMEGA-3) is indispensable and urgently needed by our body. Unfortunately, it is either absent or present in very small quantities in most food products. Fish oil is famous for high content of this fatty acid. Now, the content of unsaturated fatty acids in flax seed oil is twice as high as in fish oil!
