Why should I take flaxseed oil?

Flaxseed Oil for Good Health

Flaxseed oil comes from the seeds of the flax plant, and it contains many healthful properties, include antioxidants that can help boost the immune system and keep it healthier. This oil is loaded with alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), an essential fatty acid that seems to help control heart disease, inflammatory bowel disease, and arthritis among others.

You can find flaxseed oil supplements in both liquid and soft gel capsules. You should keep flaxseed oil supplements in the refrigerator, as they can turn rancid (like any other oil) if you store them too long at room temperature. Heat, light, and oxygen can destroy the antioxidant properties of this oil, so make sure to purchase your supplements from reputable firms that process, package, and ship it so it is safe from these elements.
