Flora DHA Flax Oil -- 17 fl oz

Supports cognitive function and eye health. Plant Based. Flora DHA Flax Oil is a vegetarian source of cold-pressed 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 for the proper functioning of the brain and in the first six months of life DHA is essential for 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.

Glass bottle, Yay! And no fish taste.
 February 10, 2011
"I really appreciate that Flora continues to provide high quality products and packaging. Most of the EFA oils on the market are in plastic bottles, which totally nullifies the benefit of the good oil. The plastic leaches chemicals into the oils. So if the bottle drips a little, no problem. I just wipe if off and rub it into my hands.
Also, contrary to another review, there is NO fish taste to this oil. And I am a 20 year vegetarian, so I would pick up on a fish taste if there were one. My 4 year old happily eats the oil by the spoonful."

fishy
 January 28, 2010
"i have never left a review before. but i have to tell you, that if you are getting this oil because you are a vegetarian and dont eat fish, you will find the flavor very fishy. and even if you can hide it in something (i tried yogurt--unsuccessfully), you will still likely have fish tasting burps. gross."

It is essential for vegetarians
 September 25, 2009
"Poor bottle design causes each serving to drip, other than that it is a great product.DHA EFA supplement from vegetarian source. I felt the difference within a few days,it is a crucial supplement not to be overlooked.Helps in many way's.Research the benefits and you will also agree.Only bad thing is it is not USDA Organic."

No algae/fish/seaweed taste
 December 24, 2007
"Don't worry, there is no algae, fish or seaweed taste in this flax oil. Actually seems to taste a little less "flaxy" than regular flax oil. Smooth taste; blends into foods/drinks well. Wish it were organic, but otherwise, very good."
