Flax Seed Oil Information

Flax Seed Oil has definitely become more recognized as an important supplement lately. However, many people still don't understand the benefits of this supplement. I mean, how can gulping down "liquid fat" actually be healthy? After all, we all grew up learning that health goes hand in hand with low fat diets. Those of you into bodybuilding probably know that there are good fats and bad fats.

What are good fats and why should I take them?
-Good fats are known by a couple different names: Omega Fatty Acids or Essential Fatty Acids (EFA's). The body cannot make fatty acids, therefore, they must be consumed through diet or nutritional supplements. Essential fatty acids decrease serum (bad) cholesterol and increase HDL (good) cholesterol. Lean bodybuilders working on getting cut usually experience greater definition when taking Flax Seed Oil.

How can I consume good fats?
-The main food source for Omega Fatty Acids is fish. However, most people will not eat fish on a daily basis. Many do not like fish at all. In this case, you want to look into nutritional supplements. In my opinion, the best supplement is Flax Seed Oil. One tablespoon will provide you with: Alpha-Linolenic Acid (omega-3) 7700mg, Linoleic Acid (omega-6) 2170mg and Oleic Acid (omega-9) 2240mg. I do not recommend you supplement with Flax Seed Oil capsules because the capsules contain extremely small amounts of each fatty acid which makes it far from cost effective.

Possible Side Effects
Flaxseed oil toxicity has not been reported. Ground flaxseeds may produce some initial flatulence, but this won't last long.

Where can I buy it and how much should I take?
-My recommendation is to take two tablespoons daily. Take one tablespoon with breakfast. Take the second tablespoon with your post-workout protein drink or with dinner. You can mix the oil with your protein drink, but I find it much easier to gulp it down followed immediately by a glass of water. It does not taste good by any means, but it is bearable.
-You can purchase Flax Seed Oil at any health food store.
