“Flax Oil Cures Anxiety” from the EarthClinic website.
In a cutting from an unidentified newspaper passed to me by a Flax enthusiast: Sharon from the US reports that having increased her daily dose of linseed(flaxseed) oil that contained ground linseed particles (High Lignan Cold-pressed Flax [Linseed] Oil) her anxiety and adrenaline levels reduced. Although she knew it helped bi-polar disorders she was surprised to find it worked on anxiety also. After taking a break from linseed oil her symptoms of anxiety returned. Many others report similar calming effects.
Some women experience anxiety, stress and depression associated with their monthly cycle or PMT. When the mood and anxiety has a hormonal element it is worth adding ground linseed (flaxseed) to the diet to benefit from the lignans which support hormone balance. .
