First off, flaxseed or linseed oil is produced by grinding and pressing flax seeds to release their natural oil. This oil contains a variety of benefits, and it can be ingested or applied to the skin.
Omega-3's: This oil is well known for containing a large amount of Omega-3 fatty acids, which is necessary for our diets. Fun fact, one tbsp contains approximately 7,195 mg of Omega-3 fatty acids. It is recommended that men need 1,600mg, and women need 1,100mg of Omega-3's daily.
Omega-3's are essential for human health, and those same fatty acids have been known to assist with the reduction of inflammation, improved heart health, and it protects the brain from aging. If you don't consume fish oil at least twice each week, then flaxseed oil would be an excellent substitute.
Heart Health: Studies have shown that flaxseed oil supports heart health. One study in which 59 people participated, after 12 weeks of use, led to a significant decrease in their blood pressure levels (1). Flaxseed oil may also help improve the arteries' elasticity from decreasing as a byproduct of age and high blood pressure (2).
This study's benefits are most likely due to the high levels of omega-3 found in the flaxseed oil. Numerous studies have shown that omega-3 fatty acids improve heart health and assist with inflammation and lower blood pressure (3).
Digestive Health: Flaxseed oil has been shown to assist both diarrhea and constipation. Flaxseed may support regularity due to the fiber content found within the oil (4). The omega-3's in the oil may assist with inflammatory issues caused by inflammation in the digestive tract.
Skin Health: When flaxseed oil is applied to the skin, you may notice an increase in smoothness and hydration, and skin irritation due to inflammation decreased. Flaxseed oil may also assist skin conditions like dermatitis.
Flaxseed oil is rich in Omega-3, and most of the benefits of taking this oil stem from that content. Omega-3's may assist with heart health, inflammation, digestion, and skin health. Flaxseed oil can be used in a variety of ways. You can apply it topically, take it as a supplement, mix it with food, or cook with it. If you lack omega's in your diet, this is the oil for you.
