Flax seed is a popular source of the omega-3 essential fatty acid alpha linolenic acid (ALA), which is known for its support for the heart, brain, skin, hair, nails, and joints. Flax seed contains large quantities of soluble and insoluble dietary fiber, which are important for digestion, bowel function and regularity. As well, flax seed is the best source of lignans, which are phytoestrogens (plant-based estrogens) important for maintaining healthy bones, heart function and hormonal balance.
Flax oil is a rich source of the omega-3 fatty acid ALA. Flax oil can be taken by the spoonful or added to salad dressings, blender drinks, yogurt and cereal, but cannot be used for cooking, as the high heat will destroy the omega-3 fats. Many flax lovers enjoy the light nutty taste that natural flax oil has to offer, but for those who don't, flax oil is also available in easy-to-swallow softgels.
