Product Information

Blame the industrial revolution. Thanks to the increased processing and packaging of food, Omega-3 has been stripped from virtually all foods. Thatís a shame, because Omega-3 is one of 49 essential nutrients that our bodies need. Unfortunately, our bodies canít produce Omega-3. We must get it from either food or supplements.

The body needs two essential fatty acids: Omega-3 and Omega-6. Working in tandem, this duo helps control the way cholesterol works and provides a slew of other benefits to our digestive, immune, and reproductive systems. The catch: you need a healthy balance between the two Omegas. Omega-3 fatty and Omega-6 fatty acids balance the exchange of fluids between the muscles and mucosal membranes as they respond to injury and attacks by microbes.

While Omega-6 can easily be obtained through sunflower, safflower, corn oil, walnuts, pumpkin seeds and other sources, Omega-3 is much harder to come by. The fact is, the vast majority of us are getting enough Omega-6 but far too little, if any, Omega-3. The best sources are deep water ocean fish (not farm-raised fish!) and flax seed oil. While this Kat would clearly prefer to dine on tuna, sea bass, or orange roughy on a daily basis, sheís also practical and knows thatís not always possible. The solution? The Co-opís Flax Seed Oil!

There are many studies that show that flaxseed oil, and in particular Omega-3 fatty acids, have a healthy impact on blood pressure and cholesterol levels, all of which means a healthier heart for you. The Omega-3 fatty acids in flaxseed oil may also promote soothing while maintaining joint health.

Dr. Johanna Budwig, a top German biochemist who has been nominated for the Nobel Prize seven times, first began touting a flaxseed oil diet in 1951. Her diet, which mixes the flaxseed oil with cottage cheese (a sulfurated protein) for easy absorption. For more on Dr. Budwig and her ground-breaking research, read her book Flax Oil as a True Aid.

Consider giving Flaxseed Oil to your dog, especially an older dog with creaky joints. It can help with joint discomfort and help keep his/her coat healthy and shiny. (Okay, okay Ö try a smaller dose with your kats, too)


  • While Flaxseed oil and Fish oil both contain Omega 3 fatty acids, they contain different types. Alpha Linolenic Acid (ALA) is found only in flaxseed. EicosaPentanoic Acid (EPA) and DocosaHexanoic Acid (DHA) are found only in fish oil. The human body can convert ALA into first EPA and then DHA, but the conversion requires several enzymatic steps. Some bodies are good at this, while others canít convert any significant amounts.
  • Because the fiber in flaxseed may lower the bodyís ability to absorb medications, flaxseed should not be taken at the same time as your other supplements and medications. Be sure to take with plenty of water, too.


  • Attention athletes! According to Fats that Heal: Fats that Kill (Alive Books, 1993), flaxseed oil can support overall muscle recovery time and help sustain energy and stamina.
  • Dr. Christine Albert, assistant professor of medicine at Harvard University, headed a study that showed how higher levels of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) in the diet could promote healthy heart function. The findings were presented at The American Heart Associationís Scientific Sessions 2004 conference.

  • Found in the Western Canadian prairies, the Mediterranean, India and parts of Europe, the flax is a blue flowering annual that stands approximately 1.2 m high.
  • Flaxseed contains 100 Ė 400 times more lignans than any other seed.
  • Other food sources of lignans include sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, soybeans, rye, broccoli and beans, all good things to add to the diet the Kat thinks.
  • Eskimos have a high intake of Omega-3 fatty acids due to all the fresh fish in their diets. They also have a very low death rate from heart disease, about 90% lower than many Western countries. Coincidence? This Kat thinks not.
  • People who follow the Mediterranean Diet tend to have healthy cholesterol levels. Itís no surprise to the Kat that this diet offers a healthy balance of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids.

Flaxseed Oil (Organic) August 3, 2016
Reviewer: Jill M. from Spencer, NY United States  
I like the product and am glad not to have to take mercury-laden fish oil to get more Omega-3s. I have been ordering products from this company from the days of Dr. Jon, a really unique character :).

I prefer this over the Fish Oil January 1, 2016
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
If I happen to belch at some point after taking Flaxseed oil, there is no disgusting fishy taste. My husband is fine with the fish oil, but it's not for me.
