Barlean's Organic Oils Review and Giveaway
The 42-acre Barlean's farm in Ferndale, WA bustles with activity. Trucks from as far away as Canada and the Dakotas pull up to deliver flax seed, forklift drivers haul pressed flax meal into storage containers for recycling as cattle feed, while inside fresh pressed flax seed oil is bottled, labeled and rush shipped to health stores around the country. The phones ring endlessly at the Barlean's farm, as hundreds of orders for Barlean's organic oils pour in from health store retailers daily, retailers who insist upon fresh-pressed-on-demand organic oils for their customers.
What's driving all this activity on the Barlean's family farm in Ferndale? The realization that 8 out of 10 Americans are deficient in essential fats, called Omega-3 fatty acids. The health consequences of this nutritional deficiency are extensive. Health authorities, such as Artemis Simopoulos M.D., author of The Omega Plan, indicates disorders such as heart and blood vessel disease, eye problems such as dry eyes and macular degeneration, mood and behavior problems such as attention deficit disorder and hyperactivity, autoimmune disorders such as arthritis, diabetes and lupus, skin problems such as psoriasis, and even cancer, may materialize from this common nutritional deficiency.
Here are some important tissue-level functions of essential fatty acids (Omega-3 fatty acids):
- Essential fatty acids are used to make cell structures and local hormones in virtually every part of the body. For that reason, the effects of essential fatty acids are wide ranging.
- Building blocks of cell membranes
- Inflammation regulation
- Tension of artery smooth muscle
- Steroid production
- Cell reproduction
- Mobility of saturated fats in the blood
- Platelet (blood components involved in clotting) stickiness
- Energy source for heart muscle
- Nerve transmission
- Muscle reflexes
- Immune response
- Eye pressure
- Kidney function and fluid balance
I have been trying to faithfully take Omega-3 fatty acids on a daily basis because I know that they are crucial to keeping our bodies in optimal health. I received a sample of Barlean's Lignan Flax Capsules to review.

What are Lignans?
Lignans are a highly studied and researched class of plant phytonutrients most abundantly found in flaxseed that have recently come to the forefront of nutritional research. Numerous studies have reported on the role of lignans in support of heart and hormonal health.* Barlean's Fresh ExPressed™ extraction process gently liberates delicate Omega-3 flax oil, while capturing lignan flaxseed particulate.
My Experience: After taking this supplement for about one month now, I have noticed a difference in my body. I used to wake up with dry eyes in the middle of the night, and now I have not had any kind of problems. I also seem to have a lot more pep and energy. My skin seems softer, my nails are stronger and my hair seems shinier! I have also been giving it to my husband because he has atrial fib, as well as high blood pressure. I know Omega-3 fatty acids are essential to heart health, so I am happy to know this is benefitting his heart. He hates taking fish oil supplements, so these Lignan Flax Capsules are perfect because they have zero aftertaste.
My husband, Jon doing what he loves best!
