Filtration is Better-Taste the Difference
Only Spectrum uses a 3-step organic filtration process to remove impurities like moisture and bacteria that accelerate rancidity and cause bitter flavors, without any loss in the quality or quantity of the essential fatty acids or phytonutrients. The result is beautiful golden oil with a great fresh taste.
The Benefits of Omega-3s
Flax oil is nature's richest source of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), an omega-3 essential fatty acid. Often referred to as "Good Fats", this vital EFA helps support normal cardiovascular function and helps to maintain healthy hair, skin and nails.

Tastes good but unfortunately it comes in a plastic bottle.
Great taste, completely not bitter

I love this flax oil! For some reason, all the flax oil I was able to get here in Singapore were already rancid in the supermarket and tasted bitter so I had to throw them away after tasting them for the first time. This flax oil is completely NOT bitter despite being about 3 to 4 days in transit. I'm not sure how iHerb does it but the bottle was still slightly cool when it arrived at my home. This is in a country where average temperature is about 30 degrees celsius (86 degrees). I will be buying this flax oil again when I've finished my bottle. Am keeping it in the freezer to extend shelf life.
Simply the Best

This is the best flax oil in my opinion ( I have tried others ). I pour it over a toasted bagel or in my kashi cereal in the morning .... salad in the afternoon and fish or sardine sandwiches at night ... great benefits as well.
