Health benefits of Flax Seed oil
Flax Seed oil has become quite renowned for its health benefits. It?s become what you call the buzzword and sales for this nondescript looking seed and its oil have risen over the past few years.
Flax seed oil also known as Linseed oil is highly recommended for general wellbeing and for whole body nutrition and is considered to be nature?s richest source of omega-3 fatty acids
Omega 3 fatty acids are needed for the health of almost all body systems. Flax Seed Oil contains omega-6 and omega-9 essential fatty acids, B vitamins, potassium, lecithin, magnesium, fibre, protein, and zinc and also provides approximately 50% more omega-3 oils than what you could get from taking fish oil.
Studies show that Omega-3 fatty acids found in Flax Seed oil help lower cholesterol.ÿ The EFA?s are also known to help protect the body against high blood pressure, inflammation, water retention and lowered immune function.
Flax Seed oil is known to reduce the risk of cancer, due to the high content of lignan in it. Research suggests that populations with a large amount of lignan in their diet show fewer incidences of cancer, especially colon and breast cancer.
Flax Seed oil is also known to help to lower cholesterol, protect against heart disease, promote the growth of healthy hair and nails, improve absorption of calcium, and help increase the metabolic rate, making it good for weight loss.
Flax Seed oil is also known to be helpful in the treatment of Eczema, Psoriasis, and Dandruff and can relieve some cases of Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) in females.
Unfortunately, our current diets do not come close to meeting our daily EFA (essential fatty acids) requirements. It?s recommendable to take Flax Seed in oil form rather than capsule form, as about 10 -15 capsules makes for the recommended amount which is just short of 1 tablespoon of Flax Seed oil. The best way to ingest this is by adding it to your shake or smoothie to disguise the taste, although the taste according to many is not that bad and almost nutty.
Considering the so very many benefits of the humble Flax Seed, begin including it in your daily diet and reap its many benefits for health.

- The Great Pomegranate Seed Oil Hi Kianouche, Thank you for your message. I would recommend to mix pomegranate oil with Marula oil for what you are looking to treat. A few drops of antioxidant-rich Marula oil mixed with Pomegranate oil can boost efficacy and help restore your skin’s functions in perfect equilibrium. Long term use may visibly minimise pores, brighten the skin, protect it from the oxidative damage caused by pollution, tones down pigmentation and assists with scar tissue healing. Hope this helps :)
- The Great Pomegranate Seed Oil Hi I’ve bought some of your pomegranate oil, together with rosehip and marula oils. Which of the other two oils would be better to mix with pomegranate oil for mature skin with hyperpigmentation due to sun damage and sometimes prone to spots and milia when using rich moisturisers. Also, can I use pomegranate oil by itself or combined with either of the other two oils around my eyes
