What does flaxseed oil capsules help with?
These capsules are an excellent choice for those individuals who already have quality omega 6 sources in their diet or for those who wish to build up their omega 3 levels before switching to a balanced blend of organic oil supplements. A period of around three months will be sufficient for most people to build up their omega 3 levels sufficiently. Bodybuilders who are dieting for competition and trying to release as much stored fat as possible, will gain most benefit from flax alone for the final 3-4 weeks before competition.
What are the benefits of taking flaxseed oil everyday?
As we now know, flaxseed oil is an excellent source of the omega 3 fatty acid ALA, which aids digestion, supports absorption, and helps to create energy for our bodies. ALA also has a long history of therapeutic use that dates back to Ancient Greek & Roman days, and has since been linked with treatments concerning skin irritations, such as eczema & psoriasis, and for the symptoms of inflammatory and rheumatoid arthritis.
Is it safe to take flaxseed oil capsules?
While flaxseed oil is a rich source of omega 3 ALA, it is actually a poor source of omega 6 LA. In fact, flax is considered to be too rich in omega 3 for the long-term and can lead to omega 6 deficiency because omega 3 and omega 6 EFAs compete for enzyme space in our cells. That is why it is important to move onto a balanced blend of omega 3 and 6 once your omega 3 levels have increased. Although it is generally considered that the western diet contains enough omega 6, they generally come from poor, damaged sources. Today's main sources of omega 6 are cooking oils and margarine's, which have been processed heavily with harsh chemicals to ensure a long shelf life. This has left us in the situation where although we do get some omega 6 intake, it is damaged to the extent where it is now harmful, rather than beneficial to health.
