Health Notes

Flaxseed and Flaxseed Oil

Flaxseed and Flaxseed Oil
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

Constipation
Dose: 1 Tbsp (15 ml) whole or ground with a full glass of water, one or two times per day
Flaxseed is a mild bulk-forming laxative that's best suited for long-term use in people with constipation.(more)
Ulcerative Colitis
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Flaxseed is an anti-inflammatory and soothing herb that may be effective in the treatment of ulcerative colitis.(more)
Menopause
Dose: 2 tablespoons of flaxseeds twice per day
Supplementing with flaxseeds may improve the frequency and severity of hot flashes in postmenopausal women. (more)
Menopause

Supplementing with flaxseeds may improve the frequency and severity of hot flashes in postmenopausal women. (more)
Constipation
Dose: 1 Tbsp (15 ml) whole or ground with a full glass of water, one or two times per day

The laxatives most frequently used world-wide come from plants. Herbal laxatives are either bulk-forming or stimulating. Bulk-forming laxatives come from plants with a high fiber and mucilage content that expand when they come in contact with water; examples include psyllium, flaxseed, and fenugreek. As the volume in the bowel increases, a reflex muscular contraction occurs, stimulating a bowel movement. These mild laxatives are best suited for long-term use in people with constipation.1

Ulcerative Colitis
Dose: Refer to label instructions

Aloe vera juice has anti-inflammatory activity and been used by some doctors for people with UC. In a double-blind study of people with mildly to moderately active ulcerative colitis, supplementation with aloe resulted in a complete remission or an improvement in symptoms in 47% of cases, compared with 14% of those given a placebo (a statistically significant difference).1 No significant side effects were seen. The amount of aloe used was 100 ml (approximately 3.5 ounces) twice a day for four weeks. Other traditional anti-inflammatory and soothing herbs, including calendula, flaxseed, licorice, marshmallow, myrrh, and yarrow. Many of these herbs are most effective, according to clinical experience, if taken internally as well as in enema form.2 Enemas should be avoided during acute flare-ups but are useful for mild and chronic inflammation. It is best to consult with a doctor experienced with botanical medicine to learn more about herbal enemas before using them. More research needs to be done to determine the effectiveness of these herbs.

In a preliminary trial, people with UC significantly improved on a sugar-free, low-allergen diet with additional nutritional supplementation that included a multivitamin-mineral supplement (2-6 tablets per day); a fish oil supplement (400 mg per day); borage oil (400 mg per day); flaxseed oil (400 mg per day); and a probiotic formula containing Lactobacillus acidophilus and other species of beneficial bacteria.3 Some participants received slight variations of this regimen. Since so many different supplements were given and since the trial was not controlled, it is not possible to say which, if any, of the nutrients was responsible for the improvement observed by the researchers.

Menopause
Dose: 2 tablespoons of flaxseeds twice per day

In a preliminary trial, supplementation with crushed flaxseeds for six weeks improved the average hot flash score (a measure of the frequency and severity of hot flashes) by 57% in postmenopausal women who were not receiving estrogen therapy. The treatment consisted of 2 tablespoons of flaxseeds (along with at least 10 ounces of liquid) twice a day. About one-fifth of the women discontinued treatment because of abdominal symptoms or other side effects.1 In a double-blind trial, daily consumption of 25 g of partially defatted ground flaxseed significantly decreased the number of hot flashes and improved overall menopausal symptoms. However, the improvements were not greater than those in women given a placebo (wheat bran).2 Because of these conflicting results, the effectiveness of flaxseed as a treatment for menopause remains uncertain.

Flaxseed, called linseed in some countries, is a good source of dietary fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, and lignans. Each of these components may contribute to the health effects of eating flaxseed, but flaxseed oil contains no fiber and very little lignan.

      Comments about GNC NATURAL BRAND Natural Brand™ Certified Organic Flax Seed Oil:

      After having a skin cancer removed, I wanted to follow part of the Budwig Protocol for Cancer Fighting & Cure. Cottage Cheese (believed the most efficient carrier for Flaxseed Oil) blended with Flaxseed Oil, has been proven to boost the immune system. After 2 weeks of daily using this blend in my smoothies, my Asthma symptoms have disappeared. Looking forward to the next 2 weeks!

      Comments about GNC NATURAL BRAND Natural Brand™ Certified Organic Flax Seed Oil:

      I purchased this product to aid as a laxative. I was hoping that my daughter's stools would be softened and discomfort lessened. We have been using the product for one week and there has not been any change for her. We will continue for two more weeks to allow this to be in her diet and see whether any change. I also understand that there are other benefits to use as well. I tasted the product and there is not a bad taste. My daughter does not mind taking the daily doses either.

          I put the flax seed oil in my breakfast smoothie every day. I get the nutrition and it's easy to take. I can't swallow pills so this is a perfect product for me. And, it's gluten free which is also perfect for me because I have Celiac's disease.

              I take a table spoon everyday with my Megamen 50 plus vitamines and other supliments. It does leave an after taste so I eat a calcium chew afterwards which helps eliminate the taste. I believe that this oil helps improve my heart health.

                  Flax Seed Oil helps reduce hot flashes with menopause. It helps with my memory, and my skin glows!! I recommend the oil over the capsule's because of the higher content in the oil and I believe it absorbs faster into your system.
