Linseed Oil comes from the common flax plant that grows the world over and has done so for so many centuries that its native land is unknown. We get linen from the stems and oil from the seed. Linseed / Flax seed Oil is best bought from a health practitioner or health food stores.
Uses: Massage for ligaments Linseed Oil used as massage oil is perfect treatment for strained, sprained, stretched, twisted, and torn ligaments. It works just as well for the tight ligaments as it does for the loose ones because it tones the ligaments as well as restores their elasticity. Linseed Oil is as essential in sports medicine as it is in home first aid for the sprained ankles and twisted knees that are an inherent part of the human experience. Massage the sprained area every few hours when the pain is acute, and follow up with a daily massage of the area until the joint has totally recovered.
Although flaxseed contains all sorts of healthy components, it owes its primary healthy reputation to three of them:
- Omega-3 essential fatty acids, “good” fats that have been shown to have heart-healthy effects. Each tablespoon of ground flax seed contains about 1.8 grams of plant omega-3s.
- Lignans, which have both plant estrogen and antioxidant qualities. Flax seed contains 75 to 800 times more lignans than other plant foods.
- Fiber. Flax seed contains both the soluble and insoluble types.
Flaxseed is a popular traditional food and remedy, as flaxseed and flaxseed oil, or linseed oil, contain alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), an omega-3 fatty acid.
Omega-3 fats are important for maintaining the body’s health. Oily fish are a common source of some types of omega-3, but for non-fish eaters, alpha linolenic acid from vegetable oils, including flax seed, are an alternative.
However, chemical differences mean vegetable sources of omega-3 fatty acids may not be as heart-healthy as those from oily fish.
