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. Then, using our proprietary milling and blending process, we add back freshly sliced flaxseed, resulting in a fresh, clean oil with wonderfully nutty taste.
The Benefits of Omega-3's and Lignans
Flax oil is nature's richest source of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), an omega-3 essential fatty acid that is naturally converted by the body into other important nutrients like DHA and EPA. Often referred to as "Good Fats", these vital EFA's support heart health and help to maintain beautiful hair, skin and nails. The premium flaxseed we add is a highly concentrated source of SDG lignans—phytonutrients that exhibit antioxidant properties and can have a balancing effect on hormones.
Shake vigorously upside down before each use; keep refrigerated

Very unhappy-one star is too much

I was very unhappy to receive my shipment after 2 days of missin UPS to find not only was my flax oil not packed and shipped refrigerated, it was very hot. I am well aware that it is garbage and not a valuable source of nutrients without consistent refigeration and it states so on the bottle. :(
