I like many others needed to increase my intake of omega 3- and being a vegetarian this was not easy to do thru my diet. So when a friend introduced me to granovita organic virgin pressed flax seed oil- I was more than wiling to give it a try.
Flax is one of the richest sources of Omega 3 which is essential for our general health, assisting the body in cellular growth and helping maintain a healthy heart.
It costs me £6.95 for a 260ml bottle but this lasts me for a month of regular use so not too high a price to pay for health.
I personally buy mine in the special diets section in Sainsbury's.
They recommend that you take one teaspoonful of the product twice a day, but I found I was not able to do this "neat", as it became like taking a nutty flavoured oily medicine that I didn't particularly enjoy. So I add it to salad as a dressing. The suppliers also recommend it as a cereal additive or as an addition to ice cream. They also recommend it as an alternative to vegetable or olive oil. The bottle contains 52 teaspoons - so I manage to eke it out so that I am just buying one bottle a month.
I guess the most important question is - are you feeling any better for it and the answer is that I didn't until I was on my third bottle and now it is a once a month purchase.
