Scientific evidence indicates that alpha-linolenic acid acts by inhibiting inflammatory and coagulation processes and therefore plays a central role in the prevention and treatment of inflammatory and cardiovascular conditions.
In Europe, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) is responsible for approving and promoting the relevance of alpha-linolenic fatty acid in the brain development of infants and children and in cardiovascular prevention through lower LDL cholesterol. (Scientific substantiation of a health claim related to ALA and contribution to brain development pursuant to Article 14 of Regulation (EC) No 1924/20061).
The most important nutrition and health organizations in the word, such as the FDA, EFSA, FAO/WHO, IOM, have recommended an adequate intake of ALA and have determined quantities for “High content” and “Good source” declarations in food products.
