1,000 mg Hexane Free, Flax Seed Oil, Essential Fatty Acid Flaxseed oil is unique because it contains two essential fatty acids; alpha-linolenic acid (an omega-3 fatty acid) and linoleic acid (an omega-6 fatty acid) in high amounts. It contains roughly 58 percent alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), considered more than other common vegetable oils. The body can convert ALA into EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid), an omega-3 oil found in fish oils. However, because the conversion from ALA to EPA is quite limited, some of the effects of fish oil (such as controlling triglycerides) do not occur when people supplement with flaxseed oil. The best utilization of flaxseed oil is a source of essential fatty acids.
