Question Linseed oil
AnswerFrom a nutritional point of view, linoleum has a characteristic that makes it unique. With the exception of olive oil (containing many antioxidants), most oils are rich in ω-6 and some (oilseed rape, cannabis oil, nuts) also contain some omega-3. In contrast, linseed oil, consisting of 55% of alpha-linolenic acid, a polyunsaturated fatty acid belonging to the omega-3 fatty acid group, and flaxseed are the richest natural source of naturally occurring omega-3, while at the same time have only traces of ω-6.

These natural antioxidants protect the heart, mitigate the symptoms of inflammatory diseases and probably protect against diabetes. In addition, flax seeds and their oil are rich natural sources of lignans antioxidants, which are found in flax at a concentration of 80 times greater than in fat fish (salmon, trout, herring, tuna, sardines, mackerel), spinach and to the devil.

The flax also contains some phytoestrogens that work proactively against cancer or slow down its progression, lower cholesterol and strengthen the immune system.

Still, the flax is rich in calcium, vitamins B1, B2, vitamin E and protein. It has a low sodium content and does not contain gluten, so the flour produced from it is more easily digestible and particularly suitable for people with gastrointestinal problems.

Due to its high fiber content (lignin, a substance that has attracted attention lately due to the potential anti-cancer effect, antimicrobial, antibacterial action, which is one hundred times more in linseed than porridge, soybeans, wheat, rye) protects the body from constipation (10-20 grams of linseed or one spoonful of linseed oil in the sandwich) and acts proactively for bowel malignancies. At the same time, its consumption relieves asthma, period pains, menopause symptoms and irritable bowel syndrome. Finally, recent studies show encouraging effects on its therapeutic effect on psychiatric and neurological problems as well as on its retarding effect on breast and prostate tumor growth.
