Specialty Natural Oils
Flax is an oil-bearing seed, which is commercially grown in Europe and
North America. It originated in Asia Minor over 5000 years ago.
Flaxseed Oil is claimed to offer significant health benefits in the
treatment of many diseases, including heart disease, arthritis, diabetes,
and stroke. It has also been claimed to be effective in the treatment
of asthma, multiple sclerosis, and skin conditions such as psoriasis
Flaxseed oil, mainly due to its high linolenic acid content, is extremely
sensitive to heat, light and oxygen. Therefore, the oil must be protected
from these elements in order to delay rancidity.
