The main issue with synthetic ingredients is that you don’t always get what you pay for. In reality, synthetic ingredients are well known for their low absorption, poor bioavailability, and the fact that they drain the body’s reserves of other minerals and vitamins (e.g., cofactors) required for proper absorption of other nutrients.
At BrainReference we recognize that dietary supplements can be the source of many allergic responses either due to cross-contamination with high-allergen compounds during the manufacturing process or because they incorporate ingredients obtained from high-risk allergenic foods (milk, eggs, or fish).
Companies with less integrity will use dangerous fillers as a “grease or lube” to aid in easier and faster production. Artificial dyes and colors are used to make supplements more appealing to the eye. Coatings are added to make capsules easier to swallow. How do these fillers impact your body and health?
Independent testing labs are not associated with the producing company, ingredients supplier, the company whose name appears on the product, or with the consumer. This means independent testing labs have no vested interest in the result of the testing and are less likely to “dry lab” or manipulate test results for self-serving reasons.

Shenyang Flax Seed Oil Ingredients
Shenyang Flax Seed Oil formula contains the following ingredients: Palmitic Acid, Stearic Acid, Oleic Acid, Linoleic Acid, and Alpha Linolenic Acid.
Shenyang Flax Seed Oil is based on an extract of the seeds of flax. Alpha Linolenic Acid is an essential Omega-3 fatty acid found in vegetable oils. This type of fatty acids cannot be produced within the body and can only be acquired through a proper diet or supplementation.
Evidence indicates that consuming the proper amounts of Alpha Linolenic Acid (ALA) may have noticeable benefits in reducing stress symptoms, depression, anxiety disorders symptoms and ADHD disorder symptoms.
Fatty acids are also researched for their possible benefits on heart and blood vessels disorders such as heart attacks, hypertension, high cholesterol and atherosclerosis. Clinical studies involving ALA as a help in the treatment of cancer have also been conducted in large numbers, with inconclusive results so far. It is considered generally safe when consumed in the recommended doses.
Oleic Acid is one of the most important Omega-9 fatty acids is believed to boost memory power and optimize the functions of the brain and neurological transmission. A study concluded that Oleic Acid can reduce risk of depression in women (particularly of a condition called Severe Depressed Mood). Side effects are rare but may include occasional headache, abdominal pain, nausea, and loose stools.
Shenyang Zhongke’s Flax Seed Oil is not a researched formula; however the FDA has classified this type of oil as a rich source of ALA. The recommended daily dosage is 2 capsules taken twice a day.

Shenyang Flax Seed Oil from Shenyang Zhongke Pharmaceutical is a dietary supplement designed to provide support particularly to individuals who experience the negative effects of memory disorders (forgetfulness, problems retaining new information, memory loss). However, the supplement is advertised to have multiple other benefits on the circulatory system, cholesterol levels, vision, sleep disorders and nervous system.
The formula is produced in China, however the manufacturer claims that the production processes use the safest, and most modern and rigorous technologies and to be compliant with GMP regulations. The dietary supplements and food sector in China is regulated by the State Food and Drug Administration of China, a state organization with similar attributions as the FDA in the United States. All in all, we recommend caution with this type of supplements, regardless of their origin. A healthcare provider should be consulted prior to use so that unwanted side effects are avoided.
