Flora DHA Flax Oil is a vegetarian source of unrefined docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) blended with organic Flora Flax Oil to provide vegetarian (algae-derived) DHA. DHA is an omega-3 fatty acid that is essential in all stages of life. In adults, DHA is essential for the proper functioning of the brain, and in the first six months of life, DHA is essential for the proper development of the nervous system and visual abilities. Flora's DHA Flax Oil is pressed from certified organic flax seeds (third party certification) that have been carefully selected for flavor and maturity. Each and every batch of flax seed is also tested to ensure it is gluten-free. Flora's high standards guarantee this product to be GMO-free. The seeds are pressed in a state-of-the-art, low-heat, light- and oxygen-free environment—then bottled in light-resistant, amber glass to ensure maximum nutritional value and freshness. Flora's DHA Flax Oil provides omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids (EFA) for the maintenance of good health.
Shake well before using. Take 1 tablespoon one to three times daily with meals. For optimum freshness, keep refrigerated and use within 8 weeks after opening. Can be frozen to maintain freshness. Do not heat or use for frying.
One serving of Flora Vegetarian DHA Flax Oil provides 103 milligrams of EPA and DHA Omega-3 fatty acids. (See Supplement Facts panel for fat content.)
Organic flax seed oil, algae oil (schizochytrium sp.), rosemary leaf extract**, high oleic sunflower seed oil, tocopherols**, ascorbyl palmitate**.
(** as antioxidant)
Caution: The FDA recommends that total daily intake of EPA and DHA from all sources does not exceed 3 grams per day, and not more than 2 grams per day from dietary supplements.

A Fresh Oil from Flora
Posted by wholefoods on Dec 04, 2012
I have used Flora products in the past and have always found them to be fresh. This product is no exception. The oil has a nice, smooth taste. I mix this in drinks in the morning. The product seems to keep well in the refrigerator. I haven't noticed major differences in my skin or hair since using this oil, but perhaps it takes a longer time. Also, regarding the DHA, while I appreciate that there is some DHA in this product from algae oil, the amount is quite small (only 100mg per serving) so I wouldn't necessarily buy this product just for the DHA although it is a nice addition.
