Flax Seed Oil
If you're looking for a plant-based alternative to fish oil, try flax seed oil. A flax seed oil supplement is an excellent source of omega 3 fatty acids, which improve heart health. Flax seed oil softgels, such as Natrol omega-3 flax seed oil dietary supplement softgels and Sundown Naturals flax seed oil softgels, provide 1000 mg of flax seed oil to help fulfill your recommended daily intake.
