Flaxseed Oil

Mar 13, 2008 - 4 comments

People have been eating flaxseed for thousands of years it was cultivated by the Babylonians as early as 3000 BC.  Hippocrates, the great Greek physician of the ancient world, used flaxseed for the relief of intestinal discomfort.  He might have told his patients to "take 2 teaspoond and call me in the morning"  Stephan Cunnane, PhD, a leading nutrition and brain-metabolism specialist at the Research Center on Aging in Sherbrooke, Canada, said "Flazseed will be the nutraceutical food of the 21st century because of it's multi-health benefits.

What's so Great about Flxseed?
Flaxseed has the highest concentration of essential fatty acid of any source on the planet.  A deficiency of Omega-3 has been positively correlated with more than 60 illnesses, including arthritis, atherosclerosis, cancer, diabetes, hypertension (high blood pressure), immune disorders, menopausal discomfort and stroke.  So adding Omega-3 to your daily diet may go a long way in helping to prevent, improve or reverse those unhealthy conditions.
Health, life and longevity critically rely on two essential nutrients.  The imbalance of these two vital neutrients is credited as possibly the leading cause of death and disability in America today.  Both Omega-3 and Omega-6 found abundantly in flaxseed, they have been deemed the essential nutrients by World Health Organization, headquarters in Geneva Switzerland.  As essential nutrients, we must get these essential fatty acids directly from foods we eat or through nutritional supplementation.  The body cannot manufacture them from other nutrients.  Throughout human history, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids have been ingested in near perfect proportion.  For millions of years, the equal ingestion of these two have created a delicate check and balance system within the body that is in control of, literally thousands of metabolic functions. That means everything including immune function, cellular communication, insulin sensitivity, inflamatory response to hormone and steriod production.  It is impossible for optimal health to be attained with a tissue imbalance of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids.  Our diets are almost void devoid of it due to food mufacturers and processing.

You can get this Flaxceed Oil it comes in gel-caps also at walmart and GNC or health food stores

I hope this helps

Flaxseed oil is not very stable. It is best to get from a health food store in the refrigerator section to ensure freshness. The best way is to freshly grind flaxseed and use that way. You get lots of fibre that way too.

Just a bit of trivia. They use flaxseed on racehorses and thoroughbreds to make thier coat shine and I use the seeds in my dogs food to help his coat shine too. So I guess your hair will improve in condition and shine as well.

I have been searching post on Flax Seed Oil.

I have had a phonominum to accur while using flax seed oil.

I am 44 years old and pre-mature grey at the age of 30.
I started using flax seed on the advice of my dietician , to help me in changing my diet due to diabetes. Here is the phonominum , with in one month of taking one 1000 mg flax seed oil capsules twice a day . In one month I noticed my grey hair was returning to is natural color. I was so amazed. My wife asked did you color your hair ? I said no - She was totaly upset because she like the grey. I on the other hand felt I have found the fountain of youth- words could not discribe.  
I know everyone's body chemistry is dif. and this may not have the same effect to others .
I would like to hear from those that have had this same phonominum  to happen with flax seed oil. Please email me at shane_mcguirt***@****
