Cold-pressed linseed oil is a nature's richest source of Omega-3 - a pure choice for vegans, vegetarians and meat-eaters alike. Omega-3 is an essential fat that like vitamins we have to get from our diet. The many other fats, nuts and seeds in the modern diet makes it all the more important to increase the intake of linseed oil to rebalance omega-3.
- “People who have tried both fresh and old flax oil sometimes go to great lengths to get it air-shipped fresh.”
“When someone tells me they have tried flax oil and don’t like its taste I suspect they have not tried fresh flax oil”
Udo Erasmus, 1986, Fats that Heal..
A Traditional Food and A Super Food
Cold-pressed linseed oil has been used for centuries in Europe, especially the Saxony area of Germany where it has always been enjoyed in traditional dishes. Linseed oil with potatoes and cottage cheese is the national dish of the area. The mild flavour associates well with many foods. More recently linseed oil has been found to have great benefits for alleviating and preventing many 20th century western inflammatory and degenerative conditions. Scientists, including Dr Johanna Budwig, have identified that it is the omega-3 which gives linseed oil its reputation for health.
"the nicest alternative to butter"
Linseed oil is a completely natural way to get your omega-3. It has a very nice mild taste and can be freely added to smoothies, soups, vegetables, pasta and salads in the same way you would extra-virgin olive oil. A good daily helping of omega-3 is provided by 1-2 teaspoons for adults and a few drops to half a teaspoon for children. Nutritionists often recommend up to 2 tablespoons for many conditions and for developing muscle in body builders and athletes.
It is very common for people to get too much of the other dietary fats which promote inflammation and not enough omega-3; a frequent result is inflammatory condtitions including arthritis, backache and muscle pain. Linseed Oil being rich in omega-3 provides the body with the nutrient to produce the anti-inflammatory hormones that help relieve pain, encourage healing and keep joints mobile.
