Flaxseed oil: the homeopathic healer
Those who want to join the wagon of wellness need to jump on board with flaxseed: the homeopathic healer. Celebrated for its curing qualities, flaxseed oil has been hailed as the natural remedy to conditions ranging from bruises to gallstones.
Keeping high cholesterol at bay
Flaxseed oil is packed with omega-3, a fatty acid with a whole host of benefits. Mike Wakeman, a pharmacist licensed in nutritional medicine, commented on the multitude of benefits omega-3 offers. "A lot of people take Omega fatty acids for a lot of reasons, people use it to lower cholesterol, other people take it for joint pain, some people take it for pre-menstrual syndrome, there are a lot of potential applications.” Most famously, omega-3 is used to lower cholesterol, which helps protect the individual from the risk of heart disease and high blood pressure.
Pleasing privy practice
As flaxseed is high in fibre, it’s an absolute essential in keeping our toilet experiences pleasant! Fibre relieves constipation, haemorrhoids and diverticular disease. As a keen healer, this lovely little oil can also help to relieve inflammation which may have been caused by an earlier grievance. The oil has also been thought to keep developing gallstones at bay – an all round toilet treat!
Healthy hair and nails
As well as keeping our insides beautiful, flaxseed oil also looks after our exterior. The copious amounts of omega-3 are thought to stimulate hair and nail growth, whilst giving them the strength to fight any breaks that they may encounter in the colder months.
Jack of all trades, master of many
Other supposed advantages of flaxseed oil include the treatment of menstrual cramps, acne, eczema and even male infertility! In terms of our appearance, flaxseed oil is also expected to give us glowing skin and can even encourage weight loss. A true jack of all trades, and, it would appear, a master of many!
