Flax Seed oil is a rich balanced source of essential fatty acids.  These beneficial fats play important roles in supporting brain, nerve, glandular and eye functions.  In addition, they are involved in the transport and metabolism of cholesterol and triglycerides. Essential fatty acids are further metabolized into hormone-like substances in the cell known as prostaglandins.  Prostaglandins are involved in the regulation of many important physiological functions.

Rich in essential fatty acids, or EFAs, flaxseed oil is used to prevent and treat heart disease and to relieve a variety of inflammatory disorders and hormone-related problems, including infertility. A source of fiber, the flax plant also boasts a long history as a healing herb. Today, flaxseeds are best known for the therapeutic oil that is derived by pressing them. Flaxseed oil has earned a great reputation for treating a variety of ailments ranging from heart disease to lupus & other autoimmune diseases.

Several studies indicate that flaxseed oil, as well as ground flaxseeds, can lower cholesterol, thereby significantly reducing the risk of heart disease. Taking flaxseed oil may also protect against angina (chest pain) and high blood pressure. Omega-3 fatty acids appear to limit the inflammatory reaction associated with these conditions. In cases of lupus, flaxseed oil not only reduces inflammation in the joints, skin and kidneys, but also lowers cholesterol levels that may be elevated by the disease.

Taking flaxseed oil for gout may lessen the often sudden and severe joint pain or swelling that is a symptom of this condition. The lignans in flaxseed appear to play a role in protecting against breast, colon, prostate cancer. Because the hormone-balancing lignans and plant estrogens (phytoestrogens) in flaxseed help stabilise a woman's estrogen-progesterone ratio, they can have beneficial effects on the menstrual cycle, and relieve the hot flashes of perimenopause and menopause. Flaxseed may also improve uterine function and thus treat fertility problems.
