Flaxseed oil is also commonly known as linseed oil. This nutrient-rich food is derived from the dried and pressed seeds of the flax plant. It is rich in Alpha Linolenic Acid, which is converted in the body to EPA and DHA.

EPA and DHA are long-chain essential fatty acids. EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) are also known as Omega-3, 6 and 9. These can be found in fish oil, but Flaxseed oil is an alternative source.
Omega-3 fatty acids are associated with improved heart health, brain protection as we age and reduced inflammation. Studies have shown that flaxseed oil can help to lower blood pressure, which puts additional strain on the heart.
It is possible to get Omega-3 fatty acids from our diets and it is recommended to enjoy 2 portions of oily fish per week. For added reassurance, a daily flaxseed oil supplement will help to ensure optimal levels.
Flaxseed oil supplements have also been shown to improve the skin, with increased hydration and a reduction in sensitivity among the key findings. You do not need to apply the flaxseed oil to the skin and can instead take a daily supplement.
Flaxseed oil has also been shown to reduce inflammation by reducing levels of C-reactive protein. This is a key marker used to measure inflammation. Studies have found Flaxseed oil to be comparable to olive oil in its anti-inflammatory properties.
