Beautiful Linseed Oil

Linseed picMy friend sent me some Linseed oil, also called Flaxseed, I have used it before but only now I am completely drawn to it. I think this is why!

“Wherever flaxseed becomes a regular food item among the people, there will be better health” said Mahatma Gandhi

Omega 3,6 and 9 are in my opinion essential for everything to work in the body, it oils joints, protects from heart disease and many other degenerative diseases and Linseed is jam PACKED with them.

Flaxseed was one of the original medicines, used by Hippocrates himself

It has a smooth, nutty taste and the brighter shade of yellow the better, if from a good source that will not be a problem. Please do not cook with the oil, it damages the omega’s as they do not stand up to heat and keep the fridge in between uses. Use in salad                  dressings, pour on top of soups before serving or over cottage cheese which is my favourite at the moment!

You can also Flax meal – this is the ground up seeds of which the oil is made from. Sprinkle on salads, add to my Grainless Porridge or smoothies etc. Flax meal promotes colon health, promotes healthy skin and helps regulate blood sugar.

All in all it is an amazing oil to use regularly and I challenge you to try it!

In my mind the purest oil available is from Darwin Banks
