HEALTH BENEFITS OF FLAXSEED OIL
Flax seeds are considered to be the most important health-supporting supplement after a multi-vitamin supplement.
Flax seeds are beneficial to almost every system in our body which includes the nervous system, cardiovascular system, reproductive system, immune system, and circulatory system.
Their natural properties offer hundreds of health benefits that make them a magic herbal remedy.
Like the seed, flaxseed oil is equally as nutritious as it contains those omega-3 fatty acids that are so important to our bodies.
If you’re not eating meat or seafood, flax seed oil is a terrific alternative to fish oil.
Some benefits of flaxseed oil include:
- Aids in weight loss
- Fights cellulite
- Promotes healthier skin and hair
- Decreases inflammation
- Helps with cancer prevention
- Lowers cholesterol levels
- Improves the immune system
