Q.What is Flax?
A.Flax is the common name for a herb of the Linaceae Family. Flax used to be one of the major sources of cloth fibre (Linen) until the cotton industry took over. The oil is extracted from organically grown flax seeds using a special cold-pressing process which minimizes the damaging effects of light, oxygen and heat.

Q.What is Flaxseed Oil?
A.Flaxseed oil is a yellowish oily substance derived from the seeds of the flax plant. To obtain the oil, flaxseeds are squeezed with the application of minimum heat possible and without the addition of chemicals. This process, called cold-pressing, results to the unrefined and raw flaxseed oil.

Q.What Nutrients are found in Flaxseed Oil?
A.Flaxseed oil is most popular for the Alpha Linolenic Acid (ALA) that it contains. This Omega 3 fatty acid works in combination with the other vitamins and minerals to maintain the body’s optimal health. For some, flax oil is one of the most powerful oil-based health supplements primarily because of the rich nutritional value in it. Other vitamins, minerals and enzymes found in flaxseed oil include the following: Vitamins A, B complex, C, E, K, Dietary Fiber, Lignan, Magnesium, Protein, Manganese, Folate, Phosphorus, Lecithin, Zinc, Copper, Calcium, Sulphur, Potassium, and Iron.

Q.Is Flaxseed Oil Good for You?
A.The health benefits of flaxseed oil can be taken advantage of almost everyone. Flavoured flax oil can be purchased for kids, while adults usually consume the liquid form itself or the capsulated ones. Flaxseed oil is known to reduce the development of heart problems and cardiac illnesses. Consumption of this oil likewise stabilizes the body’s cholesterol level, blood pressure, and sugar level. Moreover, the anti-inflammatory properties of flaxseed oil relieve joint pains and fatigued muscles; reduce joint swelling and; hasten the improvement of sprains. Flaxseed oil also garnered an image as a diet partner for people who want to better manage their weight. This product is usually added in meals to help individuals shed off some pounds. Other health benefits of flax oil include the following:

• Clears the skin and improves the overall condition of the skin
• Encourages the development of healthy hair, fingernails, and toenails
• Reduces the appearance of dandruff and itchiness on the scalp
• Improves eyesight
• Eases bowel movement and relieves constipation

Q.Why Should I Consider Supplementing With Flax Seed Oil?
A.Our bodies are unable to produce the essential fatty acids (EFA’s) contained in Flax Seed Oil. In order to gain these we must consume this natural substance through dietary or supplement consumption. Surveys prove that around 80% of the population is deficient in EFA’s. Commercial refinement of foods containing fats and oils has almost eliminated EFA’s from our food chain. Flax seed oil is unique as it contains both essential fatty acids, alpha-linolenic (an Omega-3 fatty acid) and linoleic acid (an Omega-6 Fatty acid) in generous amounts. Flax seed oil is one of the richest sources of Omega-3 EFA’s. It has 57% more Omega-3 fatty acids than fish oils.) EFA’s are needed for the body to make “Prostaglandin’s” which are hormone like substances. There are two EFA’s that we need: Linoleic acid (Omega 6) and Linolenic Acid (Omega 3). A lack of these two fatty acids can cause a decrease in Testosterone levels. It is a valuable addition to the daily diet of both normal people and bodybuilders.

Q. So How Much Flax Seed Oil Should I Supplement?
A.In order to prevent a deficiency of Essential Fatty Acids 1-2 teaspoons of Flax Seed Oil should be taken. For Mass and Bodybuilding there is increasing evidence that low fat diets relate to low levels of Testosterone. It is suggested that 1-3 Tablespoons is the optimal range for bodybuilding.
Note: 1 Tablespoon is equivalent to about 10-12 1000mg Capsules
