Benefits of Flax Seed Oil



It has been proven that seed oils are very beneficial for our health, flax seed oil can do wonders for your body. But you may not know what are the real benefits, where it comes from and what is even better than flax seeds.

Our body needs a high amount of essential fatty acids to function well, a lack of those fatty acids can cause many medical conditions that you dont want to suffer. Flax seeds contain one important omega 3 fatty acid called alpha linolenic acid (ALA). (ALA) is a plant derived fatty acid, that is similar to the ones found in fish oil, studies have proven the great benefits of fish.

Some common benefits are:

- lower cholesterol levels
- lower blood pressure
- reduce risk of heart attack
- prevents breast cancer

Taking flax seed oil in your daily diet is very beneficial and you may find it easily. Many cereals and bakery goods have flax seeds. Another option is to get flax seed flour to use in your baking. You can even make pancakes from those seeds. Use flax seed oil in your cooking instead of others.

However im going to tell you a little secret, even though alpha linolenic acid found in flax seeds is very beneficial for your health, it doesent even close to meet the benefits of DHA and EPA essential fatty acids found in fish oil.

It has been proven that our brain is 60% fats and of that more than half are dha fats. That means that a lack of dha fatty acid can lead to several mental disorders like lack of focus, loss of memory, depression, stress, alzheimer and more.

It has also been proven that omega 3 fish oil lowers blood pressure, reduces inflammation, improves the immune system, improves vision, prevents cancer, heals joint pain, arthritis and more.

The best source of fish oil is the Hoki fish from the deep cold waters of the Southerns of New Zealand.
