The flaxseed is a fascinating plant, its restorative oils were largely overlooked until fairly recently in favour of using it as a grain. Scientists are now beginning to discover that Flaxseed Oil actually shares the same amount of Omega 3 Fatty Acids as some Fish Oils and can help boost heart health as well as mobility.
Some names are unwittingly demonstrative while others are more deliberately steered towards their subject's purposes. Flaxseed oil falls into the camp of the former, flaxen by name and quite often used to give your hair that very same quality. The flaxseed is quite a unique little character for a number of reasons.
Firstly, that it has been predominantly used whole, crushed, cracked or milled as a grain for most of the time that we have known about it but rarely used for its oil. This, in spite of the fact that we know the flaxseed to consist of about 40% oil, of which 55% are Omega 3 fatty acids. It wasn't long until scientists cottoned on to this fact and started generating from the seed that precious oil which we now know to be just as potent as it's fish based equivalents.
Because of its high fibre content and rich levels of potassium it has become something of the darling of the seed oil world. Fascinating nutritionists, scientists and health enthusiasts alike. By encapsulating this mighty oil in a softgel to hide its slightly unpleasant flavour, Swanson have brought flaxseed oil very much into the future. Its availability serving as testimony to its growing popularity.
