Have you heard about flax seed oil? I’ve never heard of this thing until I came here in Korea, my husband taking this black tablet regularly. I have tried it for few times as well.
Flaxseed oil comes from the seeds of the flax plant. It contains both omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, which are needed for health. Omega-3 fatty acids usually from fish oil which proven to reduce inflammation and help prevent certain chronic diseases such as heart disease and arthritis. So studies are mixed about whether flaxseed oil is useful for the same conditions, clinical studies suggest both of them might be helpful in treating a variety of conditions.
As it says getting a good balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids in the diet is important. These essential fats are both examples of polyunsaturated fatty acids, or PUFAs. Omega-3 fatty acids help reduce inflammation, while most omega-6 fatty acids tend to contribute to inflammation.
