What is Flaxseed Oil?

Also known as linseed, flax (Linum usitatissimum) is an annual plant that produces flowers and seeded fruit. It has been cultivated since ancient times in the Middle East and Europe, with its fibers used to make linen, among many other utilitarian items. Flax has also long been incorporated into various cuisines around the world, both in flaxseed oil and flax seed form.**

Flaxseed oil (also known as linseed oil) is extracted from flax seeds and used to promote wellness across multiple body systems. Flaxseed oil is abundant in health-enhancing essential fatty acids, most notably omega-3 fatty acids (especially alpha-linolenic acid, or ALA) and omega-6 fatty acids (linoleic acid). The body requires these beneficial fatty acids but cannot produce them, meaning they must be obtained through dietary sources. Research has shown that compounds in flax and flaxseed oil (linseed oil), particularly ALA, optimize overall heart health and cardiovascular wellness. Flaxseed oil and seeds also contain antioxidants, which promote whole-body well-being by neutralizing harmful free radicals.**

In addition to the nutritional benefits of flaxseed oil (linseed oil), flax in its whole seed or ground seed form supplies both soluble and insoluble fiber. Flax seed (but not flaxseed oil) also supplies lignans, which are health-enhancing phytoestrogens that appear to have unique benefits for women’s and men’s wellness concerns. Other research has noted that flax and flaxseed oil promote healthy skin. Overall, the three main areas of wellness associated with flax and flaxseed oil (linseed oil) are:**

  • Cardiovascular Health: Flaxseed oil's omega-3 fatty acids and flax seed's fiber help to promote vascular integrity, support healthy heartbeat, optimize circulation and maintain overall cardiovascular wellness.**

  • Women’s Health: The lignans found in flax hulls are phytoestrogens that support healthy hormone levels. Lignans optimize breast health, maintain healthy estrogen levels, and help to ease symptoms of menopause and PMS.**

  • Men’s Health: Research suggests the inflammation-modulating and antioxidant activities of flax lignans may support prostate wellness and reproductive function in men.**

Flaxseed Oil and Flax Products

Flax supplement products are offered in a number of forms. Flax seeds are available whole or ground into powder, while flaxseed oil supplements (linseed oil supplements) are sold as softgels, capsules or liquid. Because both flax and flaxseed oil can have short shelf lives, following proper storage instructions is essential.**

Flaxseed Oil Directions for Use

Talk to your health care provider prior to taking flax supplements or starting any routine supplementation. Although flaxseed oil dosage has not been established, softgel supplements are often 1,000 mg per serving. Flax and flaxseed oil are commonly taken in single tablespoon amounts.**
