FLAX SEED OIL AND WRINKLESWritten by Valerie Goettsch
Flax seed oil helps lubricate digestive system and softens skin, reducing appearance of wrinkles. Flax seed is packed with oils, fibers and protein that supply your body with essential fatty acids (EFAs), notably omega 6 (linoleic acid) and omega 3 (linolenic acid) fatty acids. Your body uses EFAs through hormone production, metabolism of vitamins and protection at cellular level. The lignans from flax seed hulls help control blood sugar and insulin, thereby reducing risk of diabetes. Flax seed oil has also been shown to be helpful in reducing "bad" cholesterol. Deficiencies in EFAs have been found to be associated with eczema and dry skin. Some women have also found flax seed be helpful to in relieving hot flashes associated with menopause.
