Flaxseed oil contains alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), an omega-3 essential fatty acid which is essential for maintaining joint’s cell structure and function. ALA is broken into two compounds within your body, docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). These play a significant role in making anti-inflammatory substances in the blood called prostaglandins.
