Who should take this
PEOPLE WITH SKIN PROBLEMS
Low ALA levels have been linked to poor skin health, and the high ALA content in our Flaxseed Oil supplement may assist in decreasing skin cell inflammation and promoting regenerative functions. The added vitamin E may assist in neutralising free radicals which cause skin damage, resulting in healthy skin and even treating scars and stretch marks.
PEOPLE WITH HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE
High blood pressure can harm the heart by placing excess strain on it, forcing it to work harder. Studies have shown that flaxseed oil can significantly lower blood pressure, leading to a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease. Flaxseed oil may also increase the elasticity of the arteries, resulting in better circulation and further reducing blood pressure levels.
PEOPLE WITH HIGH CHOLESTEROL
When cholesterol builds up in the bloodstream it can block arteries, leading to a heart attack or stroke. Flaxseed oil has been shown to reduce the amount of bad cholesterol in the blood. High levels of cholesterol can also stop vitamin E getting to the tissues it needs to, and the added vitamin E in our Flaxseed Oil supplement may assist in preventing a deficiency.
THOSE AT RISK OF CANCER
Flaxseed oil contains linoorbitides, a group of compounds that are theorised to have cancer-fighting properties. The strong antioxidant properties of flaxseed oil may reduce the rate of tumour growth, and ALA has been shown to reduce the rate of cancer cell growth and actually kill cancer cells.
PEOPLE AT RISK OF DIABETES
Insulin resistance can cause high glucose levels, leading to diabetes. Flaxseed oil may assist in improving insulin sensitivity, improving glucose control and reducing the risk of diabetes and diabetes-related brain dysfunction. The added vitamin E in our Flaxseed Oil supplement may also improve insulin resistance, preventing type 2 diabetes.
THOSE WITH CONSTIPATION AND IBS
Studies have suggested that flaxseed oil may ease constipation, bloating and abdominal pain, improving the symptoms of constipation-predominant IBS. The healthy oils and omega-3 fatty acids in flaxseed may assist in lubricating your digestive system and generally improving gut health. Poor digestive function can also lead to vitamin E malabsorption, and the added vitamin E in our Flaxseed Oil supplement may assist in preventing a deficiency.
