Flaxseed Oil Health Benefits

Flax seeds and linseed oil

One third of the flaxseed oil is consisted of pure oil and the rest of it is consisted of fibers and vegetable protein adhesive. What makes this oil really special is the fact that flaxseed oil contains three acids, named alpha linolenic acid, omega 3 and omega 6 acids. (These 3 acids are marked with an -- EFA).

Great is the number of people who have lack of 3 EFA acids. Fats are also a great substitute in such cases since they contain sufficient amounts of Omega 3 fatty acids. If you do not enter enough Omega 3 acids you might come across some serious health problems.

Studies show that many diets are not containing enough amount of Omega 3 fatty acids, which can cause serious health problems:

  • Arthritis

Studies show that if patients consume oils rich in Omega 3 they may reduce the need for taking drugs.
