Flaxseed oil is the world`s richest source of omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids have been studied extensively for their beneficial effects on high blood pressure and cholesterol levels, angina and other risk factors for stroke and heart attack. New research indicates some other great benefits.
They may be helpful in easing the symptoms of arthritis and multiple sclerosis and skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema. There is also some promising preliminary evidence that they may help inhibit the formation of cancerous cells.
Eating fish will help you get your dose of omega-3. If you are a vegetarian, you will have to take it in capsule form.
