Patient: What are the benefits of taking flax oil?
Doctor: Flax seed oil is rich in omega 3 fatty acids ie alpha linoleic acid which has been proven to protect against heart disea se, inflamatorry bowel disease as well as arthritis. It helps balance the cholesterol and thus protects against high blood cholesterol levels and high blood pressure. It is recommended to supplement your diet with the same if possible by using one table spoon of flax seed oil daily or using tablets containing the same. I hope this helps.
