Heath Benefits Of Flax Seed Oil

Updated on April 25, 2012

Better health with Flax Seed Oil

The plague of inflammation and high blood pressure that has swept America is likely associated with the amount of omega-6 fatty acid in people’s diets. The average American has anywhere from fourteen to twenty-six times the amount they actually need. This has lead scientists all over America to believe that the pandemic of people with high blood pressure and inflammation in cases like arthritis can be directly correlated to those with too much omega-6 in their system. Along the same lines, the same group, generally doesn’t get anywhere near the amount they need of omega-3 essential fatty acids in their diet. The optimum goal in all of this is to get a good balance between omega-3 essential fatty acids and omega-6 fatty acids. Resulting in positive effects in your body and deterring things like inflammation, arthritis, or high blood pressure.

A positive diet generally consists of two or four times less of the omega-6 acids than what you have in store of omega-3 essential fatty acids. But the problem remains on how or where to do this. Omega-3 essential fatty acids don’t just pop up in your meals you are placing in front of you. That is, unless you’re eating fish, the job has yet to be addressed. Cultures on the coast and Mediterranean people that generally take in a lot of oils like coconuts and eat generous helpings of fish have always had proper levels of omega-6, and omega-3 essential fatty acids. Not only that but much less in terms of problems with high blood pressure, arthritis or any kind of inflammation associated with these types of health problems.

Flax seed oil has been the most effective dietary supplement to introduce into the human system to find the harmonious levels of omega-6 and omega-3 essential fatty acids. Flax seed oil has shown to lower cholesterol levels incredibly, and has also shown to be a deterrent of cancer in some cases. And those who have chosen to use flax seed oil are much more unlikely to develop heart disease and high blood pressure than humans without a diet consisting of flax seed oil and what it is made up of.

Along the lines of inflammation with flax seed oil, it has shown to generously effect those with arthritis. This dietary supplement can give a person experiencing painful effects of arthritis have shown to not just relieve the pain associated with inflammation in joints, but as well to give better mobility in even the most severe cases of arthritis. Many have resulted to using flax seed oil in their diet to relieve the inflammation effects of any joint pain.
