Flaxseed oil for beauty

I have junked the collagen supplements in favour of the cheaper and more beneficial flaxseed oil capsules these days. 

Flaxseed oil is a natural source of omega-3 essential fatty acids (EFAs) which is good for maturing, dry skin as well as skin disorders such as acne, psoriasis and eczema. In fact, it is one of the most easily available healthy fats which I’ve wrote about.

Healthy-looking skin requires EFAs.  Skin properly nourished with EFAs is smoother, looks velvety instead of greasy, feels softer and shows less acne, dryness, blackheads, whiteheads and other skin conditions.  The skin is also infected less easily, looks radiant, ages more slowly and remains wrinkle-free longer. Without sufficient EFAs, the skin loses water, producing a dry rough appearance. 

Sounds good eh?

Besides promoting healthy skin, flaxseed oil is also good for the growth of hair and nails.  In addition, it is beneficial for general well being as it lowers cholesterol and blood pressure, protects against heart disease and aid in reducing risk of cancer. 

Liquid flaxseed oil is best I suppose but I prefer supplements which is more convenient.  There are many available flaxseed oil supplements in the market, even organic natural type.  You can check with your local pharmacy for more information.  In addition to taking the supplements, you can also take flaxseeds in its natural form, adding to your salad for example if you like.

    I have been searching post on Flax Seed Oil.

    I have had a phonominum to accur while using flax seed oil.

    I am 44 years old and pre-mature grey at the age of 30.
    I started using flax seed on the advice of my dietician , to help me in changing my diet due to diabetes. Here is the phonominum , with in one month of taking one 1000 mg flax seed oil capsules twice a day . In one month I noticed my grey hair was returning to is natural color. I was so amazed. My wife asked did you color your hair ? I said no – She was totaly upset because she like the grey. I on the other hand felt I have found the fountain of youth- words could not discribe.
    I know everyone’s body chemistry is dif. and this may not have the same effect to others .
    I would like to hear from those that have had this same phonominum to happen with flax seed oil. Please email me at shane_mcguirt@bellsouth.net
