Help Normalise Cholesterol Levels Naturally
Nutrapure Flaxseed (Linseed) Oil 1000mg is a cold-pressed, unrefined oil, high in essential fatty acids. Flaxseed oil is rich in omega 3, 6 & 9 essential fatty acids providing at least 50% more omega 3 than fish oils. Other nutrients in Flax Seed oil include B vitamins, potassium, lecithin, magnesium, fibre, protein, and zinc. The fibre content in flaxseed is of importance when it comes to cholesterol levels.
Flaxseed oil contains the essential fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), which the body converts into eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), which is the omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil. This is why Flaxseed is believed to possess similar benefits to fish oils as their omega 3 profiles are similar.
It has been discovered that Flaxseed can help naturally reduce cholesterol levels. This is because the soluble fibre content confines fat & cholesterol to the digestive system so it isn’t absorbed and at the same time, confines bile (which is produced from cholesterol in the gallbladder).
The bile is then excreted through the digestive system, compelling the body to make more, which uses up surplus cholesterol in the blood thereby helping to lower cholesterol as a whole.
Cholesterol itself is naturally present in all of us. Made by the liver, the body ‘needs’ it for the proper functioning of cells, nerves, and hormones. Cholesterol in the body exists in the form of fatty acids (lipids) that travel through the bloodstream. Cholesterol doesn’t normally build up in the walls of the arteries, but when inflammation levels go up within the body, low-density lipoprotein (LDL - bad cholesterol) accumulates in the arteries and dangerously forms plaque clots, cutting off blood flow and setting the scene for a heart attack or stroke. Cholesterol itself requires inflammation in order to be dangerous.
The myth is that high fat diets are to blame for high cholesterol levels when in fact it may be due to how certain people metabolise cholesterol, which might increase plasma LDL cholesterol levels.
If you want to lower high cholesterol naturally, avoiding all fats is not the solution. Nor is avoiding foods that contain cholesterol such as eggs or cheese, because it’s about moderation and balance. Eat a variety of nutrient-dense foods that fight inflammation and tackle the root of the problem. Flaxseeds ‘are’ nutrient dense and provide a good ratio of Omega 3,6 & 9 to help lower inflammation within the body and thus helping to lower cholesterol levels.

Is Nutrapure Flaxseed (Linseed) Oil Right For Me?
Inflammation within the body can only be diminished through consuming antioxidants that help to prevent damage caused by rogue cells known as free radicals, therefore, if you are not consuming enough antioxidants through your diet, inflammation may be inevitable. As inflammation has been found to be the main cause of high cholesterol, one way to help minimise the risk of developing high cholesterol is to take Flax seed (Linseed) supplements like Nutrapure Flaxseed (Linseed) Oil 1000mg to help maintain normal levels, naturally.
Flaxseed Oil in the Press
Health Article: The Irish Times: Flaxseed can help in battle against cholesterol
Its use as a dietary supplement has led to renewed interest because of its omega-3 fatty acids. More than half of the oil is alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), making flaxseed oil one of the richest sources of this particular omega-3.
Much of the interest in omega-3s has focused on two other types, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). EPA and DHA are the main omega fats found in fish oils. Although our bodies can convert ALA into EPA or DHA, this does not happen very efficiently.
So, while flaxseed oil and fish oils contain omega-3 fatty acids, they differ in their effect in the body. Products containing ground flaxseed will have the omega-3 fatty acids along with the fibre and other active ingredients called lignans. These plant sterols are known to affect cholesterol metabolism.

NutraPure Capsules Vs Vitamin Tablets
Many of us take vitamins supplements daily to meet all the body's needs and to live a happy and healthy life. But which vitamins are better to buy? What is the best for our body? There is no point in taking supplements that are putting in more additives and preservatives than active ingredients. Usually tablet contains only 15% of vitamins and minerals. The rest of the tablet is colourings and preservatives - everything that is deposited in our body. This means taking such vitamins brings more harm than benefit.
