Barleans Organic Oils 40% OffThe current interest in flax seed oil for health isn't new. The medicinal properties of flax seed oil were recognized by Hippocrates in ancient Greece.
What was recognized thousands of years ago was forgotten till 1929 when researchers at the University of Minnesota discovered fats are required to sustain life. But it has taken another six decades before health authorities have begun to recognize the consequences of essential fatty acid deficiencies in the population at large.
By the 8th century Charlemagne, the Roman emperor, ruled that every citizen of the Roman empire had to consume flax seed every day to maintain health.
Over a hundred and fifty years ago wild game, fish, eggs and whole grains were sources of Omega-3 fatty acids. Today the milling of grain removes the fatty acids. Other essential nutrients are added back into flour except the fatty acids because they reduce the shelf life of the flour. Laying hens, even the ones advertised as "free range," have no access to Omega-3 fatty acids in their diet. Eggs now provide little Omega-3. Essential Omega-3 fats are missing from the food chain and Americans are paying a steep price for this in poor health.
Barlean's: It's a family affair Back on the Barlean's farm, Bruce, known as the Tom Sawyer of his family, has recruited his sisters to join his cause. Jo Ann works in flax production and Karen is the bookkeeper and controller. Cindy has taken over the Barlean's fishery, which still offers fresh fish. They even offer canned pink salmon under the Nature's Bounty label. It's a real family affair. Dave maintains a complete machine and metal working shop on the farm. His latest project is to build silos to house the truck loads of flax seed that arrive weekly. Dave also has a tanker truck that sprays sludge, a by-product of seed pressing, onto the family farm land. The grass on the Barlean's farm is noticeably greener than their neighbors. Preserving and profiting from nature has become a trademark of Barlean's.
Typically the Barlean's product moves off store shelves faster than their competitors and savvy consumers are willing to pay a bit more for the pressed-on-demand freshness.
Even with supplementation it takes months to replenish the body with Omega-3 fatty acids. Both fish and flax provide the essential Omega-3 fatty acids. But only flax, with a 4-to-1 ratio of Omega-3 over Omega-6 fatty acids, can quickly rebalance the body with essential Omega-3s. One tablespoon of flax seed oil provides 5000 mg. of Omega-3 oil, which is equal to 5 to 10 fish oil capsules. No wonder Dave Barlean gave up his fishing boat to press flax seed. Until Omega-3 oils are replaced in the food chain, Barlean's has some tall orders to fill.
