Flaxseed Oil Benefits
Flaxseed oil is a rich natural balanced source of omega-3 & 6 essential fatty acids (EFA). These fatty acids are crucial in order for the body to perform key biological functions. Flaxseed oil consists of ALA (alpha-linolenic acid - omega 3) and LA (linoleic acid - omega-6). These types of essential fatty acids help to reduce inflammation, maintain a healthy heart, improve circulation & digestion, promote a balanced metabolism, regulate hormone function and support the health of the joints and skin.
Dogs are unable to produce omega-3 & 6 themselves, so it is crucial to add these beneficial fats to their diet in order to maintain good health. Many pet foods will claim to include adequate amounts of EFA’s, however, they are rarely in sufficient quantities to provide genuine health benefits. Long-term EFA imbalance can cause health problems.
Our flaxseed oil contains a balanced proportion of omega-3 (60%) and omega-6 (16%), so supplementing your dog’s daily food with Proflax Natural is an extremely effective and 100% natural, toxin-free way of ensuring that their essential fatty acid intake is at its best.
