>Flax seed oil in it's FRESHEST form
To whom it may concern, i was reading your view on Flax seed Oil and
Flax seed / Seeds. It seems that you prefer the Flax / Seed over the
Flax seed Oil, it was my understanding that, Flax / Seed does not have
Omega3 or 6., this was reported by Canadian/Council/of/flax seed.
High in Omega 3
Omega-3's kept the mice's brains working
Fiber and lignans
Flax seed delivers the full benefits of Omega 3, 6 & 9 EFA's, plus all of the fiber, protein, lignans (an anti-cancer agent), vitamins, minerals and amino acids that are important nutrients for overall good health.
There is a considerable savings by grinding your own flax seed. The cost of 1/4 cup of our Premium golden flax seed is $0.38 compared to $1.70 (prices vary) for 18 flax oil capsules.
Consuming the entire flax seed with all of its nutritional components will leave you feeling satisfied for hours. Example: ground flax seed mixed in a tall glass of orange juice will provide you with a complete breakfast.
A Word About Flaxseed Oil
"flaxseed oil (see> flaxseed oil vs. flaxseed) is a wonderful source of alpha-linolenic acid. However, when you buy flax in the form (oil), this is all you're getting. In other words, flaxseed oil is lacking (see> flaxseed oil vs. flaxseed) in all the other important nutrients that provide so much benefit, particularly fiber, lignans, and protein.
...flaxseed oil comes in two different forms: regular and high-lignan oil. This latter variety struck me as odd when I first began researching flaxseed and flax-based products, since flaxseed oil is, by definition, lacking in lignans. I did some investigating, contacting several companies that produce the "high-lignan" version to check out just what process they use in its manufacture. Unfortunately, I could not verify that lignans are somehow added back in to the oil. Therefore, I suggest you be wary when confronting such claims.
And here is one last caveat about flaxseed oil. Because of its chemical composition, flax oil must be kept refrigerated at all times. Even refrigerated, it's got a pretty short shelf life - you have to use it within six to eight weeks after opening the bottle - after that it goes rancid. How do you know if your flaxseed oil has gone bad? You'll get a bitter taste or even a burning sensation on your tongue, and it will start to smell like paint thinner. Unrefrigerated, it spoils much faster, as I discovered during an experiment I did on my own. I left a bottle of flaxseed oil out on my kitchen counter, checking it daily. After just a few days, the odor it gave off had changed dramatically! Not a flavor I wanted to add to my meals, that's for sure!

Keep in mind that flaxseed oil is expensive. Since it spoils relatively quickly, and since the research show that whole or ground flaxseed has far more beneficial properties, it seems wiser to skip the oil and go straight for the seeds."
