Waihi Bush Flax Original - Flax Seed Oil 1000mg Capsules


  • 125 vegecaps
  • 250 vegecaps
Flax Original capsules are pressed from certified organic flax seed, Linum usitatissimum (Linseed). The oil is high quality, extra virgin, unrefined, and contains no toxic substances or cholesterol. It is cold pressed in the absence of light, air and reactive metals and packaged in black HDPE plastic under an inert gas blanket to further protect it against light and oxygen.
Waihi Bush Flax Seed Oil is approximately 60% Omega-3 alpha linolenic acid (ALA), and also contains the Omega-6 linoleic acid (LA) and the monounsaturated Omega-9 oleic acid.
Research has shown that most western diets have an imbalance of Omega essential fatty acids. While our bodies are evolved on a 1:1 ratio of Omega-3 to Omega-6, researchers have shown that many people consume more than 20 times more Omega-6 than Omega-3! This deficiency of essential Omega-3 fatty acids results in the symptoms of sub-optimal health, including low immunity, vision problems, dry skin and hair, low energy and fatigue, learning problems, mood swings and depression.
You can have absolute confidence in the superior quality of organic Waihi Bush farm flax seed products. Our flax seed is grown organically by selected farmers in the South Island of New Zealand. After harvest we cold press the seed; the oil is absolutely pure, with nothing added and nothing removed. Then we check the oil for quality and taste, then bottle it. We take care at every step to maintain the integrity of this nutritious oil so that it reaches you in perfect condition.

No More eczema! Review by
  • star

My grand-daughter's sheets used to need washing every day because she would scratch her eczema covered legs in her sleep. All to creams we tried (including hydrocortisone) failed to help. After a short time of using 3 capsules of flax oil night and morning, her legs cleared up beautifully. After a few years we wondered if she had now grown out of the condition (as her doctor said she would) so she stopped taking the capsules. Within 3 days, her eczema was back with a vengeance! My grand-daughter now has beautiful clear skin thanks to this product.

Very good quality Review by

I have been using these capsules for about six months. Have noticed a big difference in the texture of my hair, alot smoother. My skin is softer as well. Good for stiffness and just general overall wellness. Very good quality as opposed to other brands.

Eczema 'cure' - highly recommended Review by
  • star

This product has been the 'miracle cure' for my grand-daughter. We have taken her to every skin specialist in Auckland with only minor improvements. She takes 3 caps night and morning and her eczema is almost non-existant! It flares up only when she's stressed or overheated. From a baby whose sheets had to be changed daily from her scratching until she bled during the night, we now have a 10year old who isn't trying to hide her hands from her school friends any more.

I have been taking this supplement for nearly three months and have noticed an improvement in my hair, skin and nails. My skin especially feels more hydrated and clear and even though my hair is coloured, it is soft and healthy looking. I would recommend this product.

I buy flax seed oil capsules for my teenage son - keeps at bay his eczema. I usually by Flaxomega but thought I'd try this brand for a change. (Did try another brand a few years ago with the same results.) My son's eczema returned. Have put him back on Flaxomega and bingo! Eczema gone again. I am finishing the Waihi Bush batch. I note my skin too is drier than when I'm taking the Flaxomega.

My husband and I have been taking these capsules for several years now. We feel the flaxseed oil has helped our joints remain relatively pain-free and supple allowing us able to climb stairs, walk freely and maintain a exercise routine. Before hand we felt our joints were less comfortable and stiffening up. We are in our 60s and 80s so age is not on our side but Waihi Bush Flax Seed oil sure is. Thank you.

These tablets are essentials for me and my family. If I stop taking them within a week I start to feel really run down and often come down with a cold. My baby also started to develop dry, red patches on the tops of his arms and within a week of taking the oil - punctured the capsules and put the oil into his food - the rash had gone. Great stuff for all ages!

I am really pleased with the effect this supplement is having on my skin after only a couple of weeks. I suffer from dry itchy skin and this has made a significant improvement. I like the fact that it is also a New Zealand based company, made of NZ made ingredients.
