    Flaxseed is also known as Linum usitatissimum, Flax, Common Flax, Linseed, Flax Seed, Flaxseed Oil, Flax Seed Oil, Flaxseed Omega-3, Flaxseed Fatty Acid DHA, Chih Ma.

    Flax is a member of the genus Linum in the family Linaceae. It is a food and fiber crop that is grown in cooler regions of the world. In addition to referring to the plant itself, the word "Flax" may refer to the unspun fibers of the flax plant. The plant species is known only as a cultivated plant, and appears to have been domesticted just once from the wild species Linum bienne, called Pale Flax.

    Flax is one of the English-grown medicinal herbs, the products of which are included in the British Pharmacopia, its seed known as Linseed, being much employed in medicine. Its cultivation reaches back to the remotest periods of history, Flax seeds as well as the woven cloth having been found in Egyptian tombs. It has been cultivated in all temperate and tropical regions for so many centuries that its geographical origin cannot be identified, for it readily escapes from cultivation and is found in a semi-wild condition in all the countries where it is grown.

    flaxseed flowers

    Several other species in the genus Linum are similar in appearance to Linium usitatissimum, cultivated flax, including some that have similar blue flowers, and others with, white, yellow, or red flowers. Some of these are perennial plants, unlike L. usitatissimum, which is an annual plant. Cultivated flax plants grow to nearly 4 feet tall with slender stems. The leaves are glaucous green, slender lanceolate, 20 to 40 mm long and 3 mm broad. The flowers are pure pale blue, 15 to 25 mm diameter, with five petals.

    The flax (or linseed) fruit is a globular (round), dry capsule, about the size of a small pea (5 to 9 mm diameter), containing in separate cells several glossy brown seeds (about ten seeds shaped like an apple pip), which are brown (white within), oval-oblong and flattened, pointed at one end, shining and polished on the surface, 1/6 to 1/4 inch long. They are inodorous except when powdered, but the taste is mucilaginous and slightly unpleasant.

    flaxseed varieties


    Flaxseed (Linseed) varies much in size and tint - a yellowish variety occurring in India. Holland, Russia, the United States, Canada, the Argentine and India furnish the principal supplies. The Russian seed or Dutch-grown of Russian origin, though small, is preferred for Flax-growing, as it is hardier than the large southern seed from the Mediterranean and India. For medicinal purposes, English and Dutch seeds are preferred, on account of their freedom from weed-seeds and dirt. If containing more than 4 per cent of weedseeds, linseed may be said to be adulterated. Of English and Dutch seeds about twelve weigh 1 grain, but some of the Indian and Mediterranean varieties are twice as large and heavy.

    Flax seeds come in two basic varieties:
      1. Brown.
      2. Yellow or Golden (also known as Golden Linseeds).

    Most types have similar nutritional characteristics and equal numbers of short-chain omega-3 fatty acids. The exception is a type of yellow flax called solin (trade name Linola), which has a completely different oil profile and is very low in omega-3 FAs. Flax seeds produce a vegetable oil known as flaxseed oil or linseed oil, which is one of the oldest commercial oils. It is an edible oil obtained by expeller pressing, sometimes followed by solvent extraction. Solvent-processed flax seed oil has been used for many centuries as a drying oil in painting and varnishing. Although Brown Flax can be consumed as readily as yellow, and has been for thousands of years, its better-known uses are in paints, for fiber, and for cattle feed.

    flaxseeds and flaxseed oil


    Flaxseed oil is a rich, vegetarian source of omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids. Essential fatty acids are critical in the production of prostaglandins. In the body prostaglandins help regulate fat metabolism, inflammatory response, hormones, as well as the cardiovascular, immune and central nervous systems. There is some concern by some health care providers that modern diets may be too rich in omega-6 fatty acids and deficient in omega-3's, which can contribute to health concerns.

    The envelope or testa of the seed contains about 15-percent mucilage. The seeds themselves contain in the cotyledons and endosperm from 30 to 40 per cent of a fixed oil, of a light yellow color, and about 25-percent proteids, together with wax, resin, sugar, phosphates, acetic acid, and a small quantity of the glucoside Linamarin. On incineration, linseed should not yield more than 5-percent of ash.

    The oil is obtained by expression, with little or no heat. The cake which remains after expressing the oil, and which contains the farinaceous and mucilaginous part of the seed, is familiarly known as oil-cake, and is largely used as a fattening food for cattle. It is also used as a manure. When ground up, it is known as linseed meal, which is employed for making poultices. The meal is sold in two forms, crushed flaxseed (linseed) and flaxseed meal (linseed meal). Formerly linseed meal was always obtained by grinding English oil-cake to powder and contained little oil, but now the crushed seeds, containing all the oil, are official. Crushed flaxseed of good quality usually contains from 30 to 35-percent of oil.

    Flaxseed oil rapidly absorbs oxygen from the air and forms, when laid on in thin layers, a hard, transparent varnish. It is largely used in the arts for its properties as a drying oil. It is a viscid, yellow liquid, its chief constituent being Linolein. It also contains palmitin, stearin and myristin, with glyceride of linoleic acid. Boiled oil, produced by heating raw flaxseed oil to a temperature of 150°C., together with a small proportion of a metallic drier, possesses the drying properties of flaxseed oil to an enhanced degree. It becomes of a brown color and dries much more rapidly, and in this state is used in the manufacture of printer's ink and is known as linseed oil.

    Although flax seeds contain lignans, a class of phytoestrogens considered to have antioxidant and cancer-preventing properties, the extracted linseed oil according to some, does not contain lignans found in flax seed, and allegedly does not have the same antioxidant properties. Some brands of supplement have lignans added during production. Flax seed oil is easily oxidized, and rapidly becomes rancid, with an unpleasant odor, unless refrigerated. Even when kept under cool conditions, it has a shelf life of only a few weeks. Oil with an unpleasant or rancid odor should be discarded. Oxidation of flax seed oil is a major commercial concern, and antioxidants may be added to prevent rancidification. The alpha linolenic acid (ALA) in flaxseed oil is suitable for cooking, as it (and the lignans in flax seeds themselves) can withstand temperatures up to 350°F for two hours.

    Food-grade flaxseed oil is cold-pressed, obtained without solvent extraction, and marketed as edible flaxseed oil. Fresh, refrigerated and unprocessed, linseed oil is used as a nutritional supplement and is a traditional European ethnic food, highly regarded for its hearty taste. It contains the highest level of the omega-3 fatty acid ALA among vegetable oils. Regular flaxseed oil contains between 52 and 63-percent ALA (C18:3 n-3). Plant breeders have developed flaxseed with both higher ALA (70-percent) and very low ALA content (less than 3 percent). The USFDA granted generally recognized as safe (GRAS) status for high alpha linolenic flaxseed oil.



    The earliest evidence of humans using wild flax as a textile comes from the present day Republic of Georgia, where spun, dyed, and knotted wild flax fibers were found in Dzudzuana Cave and dated to the Upper Paleolithic, 30,000 years ago. Flax was first domesticated in the Fertile Crescent region. There is evidence of a domesticated oil-seed flax with increased seed size by 9,000 years ago from Tell Ramad in Syria. Use of the crop steadily spread, reaching places as far as Switzerland and Germany by 5,000 years ago (3,000 BCE). In China and India domesticated flax was cultivated by at least 5,000 years ago (3,000 BCE).

    Flax was extensively cultivated in ancient Egypt, where temple walls had paintings of flowering flax and mummies were entombed in linen. Egyptian priests only wore linen, as flax was considered a symbol of purity. Phoenicians traded Egyptian linen throughout the Mediterranean, and the Romans used it for their sails. As the Roman Empire declined, so did flax production, but Charlemagne revived the crop in the 8th century CE with laws designed to publicize the hygiene of linen textiles and the health of linseed oil. Eventually, Flanders became the major center of the linen industry in the European Middle Ages. In North America, flax was introduced by the colonists and it flourished there. But by the early 20th century cheap cotton and rising farm wages had caused production of flax to become concentrated in northern Russia, which came to provide 90-percent of the world's output. Since then flax has lost its importance as a commercial crop, due to the easy availability of more durable fibers.

    flax seed



    Flax is grown for its oil, used as a nutritional supplement, and as an ingredient in many wood-finishing products. It is also grown as an ornamental plant in gardens. Flax fibers are used to make linen.

    Flax fibers are taken from the stem of the plant and are 2 to 3 times as strong as those of Cotton. Flax fibers are naturally smooth and straight. Europe and North America depended on Flax for vegetable-based cloth until the 19th century, when cotton overtook Flax as the most common plant used for making rag-based paper. Flax is grown on the Canadian Prairies for Linseed Oil, which is used as a drying oil in paints and varnish and in products such as linoleum and printing inks.



    Linum usitatissimum seeds have been used in the traditional Austrian medicine internally (directly soaked or as tea) and externally (as compresses or oil extracts) for treatment of disorders of the respiratory tract, eyes, infections, cold, flu, fever, rheumatism and gout.

    Worldwide studies have shown that using Flaxseed oil boosts the immune system, promotes anti-tumor activity, normalizes blood pressure levels and inhibits cancer cell growth. Flaxseed oil is beneficial for allergies, cardiovascular health, cholesterol levels, circulation, eczema, eyesight, immune function, learning ability, nerve problems, osteo-arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, viral illness, weight management, diabetes, blood pressure, inflammation, psoriasis, multiple sclerosis, ulcerative colitis, acne, dry skin, energy levels, PMS, mood swings, and liver problems.

  • Pregnancy: The fact that the oil is allowed to be taken during pregnancy and lactation period speaks for itself. It boosts the immune system of a pregnant woman to the level safe for the fetus and necessary to support the mother-to-be and her future child. Without this natural immunity stimulator a pregnant woman is too vulnerable to various infections and fungi. According to the Flax Council of Canada, ALA is required for normal infant development.

  • Infections, Cancer & Cardiovascular: The oil plays an inestimable role in prevention of cardiovascular diseases and lowers arterial pressure. It performs blood vessels cleansing from cholesterol plaques. The researches have proved that consumption of the oil reduces the risk of a heart stroke by 37-percent. Flaxseed oil is a storehouse of lignans, which are necessary to fight against cancer. Studies have shown a relationship between ALA and an increased risk of prostate cancer. The risk was found to be irrespective of source (e.g., meat, vegetable oil). Besides cancer, lignans also guard against certain bacterial and viral infections. But perhaps the benefits of flaxseed oil are best observed in heart diseases. It may be beneficial for reducing inflammation leading to atherosclerosis. It lowers cholesterol and triglycerides ensuring the smooth flow of blood in our body. It also maintains the blood pressure which is another source of coronary heart disease. Since it controls the very factors leading to heart diseases, taking required amounts of flaxseed oil is extremely necessary.

  • Digestive: A positive effect is also on the digestive tract, being applied as a component of effective treatments against helminthes, heartburn, gastritis, ulcers, constipation. The benefits of flaxseed oil even encompass the dreaded gout disease. Flaxseed oil lessens the inflammation and swellings leading to sudden and severe joint pain in gout. By taking controlled quantities of flaxseed oil, you can prevent or cure the pain caused by this disease. Flaxseed oil also finds mention in treating problems relating to digestion. It can make an upset stomach alright and even helps to cure constipation. In fact, it helps to condition the digestion and keep it problem-free.

  • Women's Health & Beauty: Flaxseed oil is very advantageous for woman's health and beauty. It lowers the risk of breast cancer, relieves premenstrual syndrome and premenopause, improves the condition of skin and hair and helps to lose weight. Some women even notice breast growth when taking the oil.

  • Skin, Nails & Hair: Flax seed oil is an important ingredient in treating many skin problems associated with the bright appearance of a person. Eczema, acne and sunburns can all be treated with flaxseed oil. You can also take the oil for luxurious hair growth and perfect nails. You might also end up losing a good many years and looking very young. Aching and injured skin can be relieved by taking flaxseed oil. Dry skin can even be softened by the application of flaxseed oil directly to the area.

  • Other Benefits: The oil has positive influence on the metabolism, contributes to strengthening of the nervous system, improves kidney work, the eyesight and helps in asthma treatment.

  • Flaxseed oil actions include emollient, demulcent, pectoral. The crushed seeds or meal make a very useful poultice, either alone or with mustard. In ulceration and superficial or deep-seated inflammation, a poultice allays irritation and pain and promotes suppuration. The addition of a little Lobelia seed makes it of greater value in cases of boils. It is commonly used for abscesses and other local affections. It is largely employed as an addition to cough medicines. As a domestic remedy for colds, coughs and irritation of the urinary organs, flaxseed / linseed tea is most valuable. A little honey and lemon juice makes it very agreeable and more efficacious. This demulcent infusion contains a large quantity of mucilage, and is made from 1 ounce of the ground or entire seeds to 1 pint of boiling water. It is taken in wineglassful doses, which may be repeated as needed.

    The oil, mixed with an equal quantity of lime water, known then as Carron Oil, is an excellent application for burns and scalds. Internally, the oil is sometimes given as a laxative. In cases of gravel and stone it is excellent, and has been administered in pleurisy with great success. It may also be used as an enema injection in constipation. Mixed with honey, the oil has been used as a cosmetic for removing facial spots.

    The oil enters into veterinary pharmacy as a purgative for sheep and horses, and a jelly formed by boiling the seeds is often given to calves. The seed is often employed with other seeds, as food for small birds. Plantain seeds, also a favorite food of small birds, can be used instead of flaxseed / linseed in making poultices, as they contain much mucillage, though not as much oil.

    Flax seed sprouts are edible, with a slightly spicy flavor. Excessive consumption of flax seeds with inadequate water can cause bowel obstruction. In northern India, flaxseed, called (tisi or alsi), is traditionally roasted, powdered, and eaten with boiled rice, a little water, and a little salt. 100 grams of ground flax seed supplies about 450 calories, 41 grams of fat, 28 grams of fiber, and 20 grams of protein.

    Whole flax seeds are chemically stable, but ground flaxseed can go rancid at room temperature in as little as one week, although there is contrary evidence. Refrigeration and storage in sealed containers will keep ground flax from becoming rancid for a longer period; under conditions similar to those found in commercial bakeries, trained sensory panelists could not detect differences between bread made with freshly ground flax and bread made with milled flax stored for four months at room temperature. Milled flax is remarkably stable to oxidation when stored for nine months at room temperature if packed immediately without exposure to air and light and for 20 months at ambient temperatures under warehouse conditions.

    Three natural phenolic glucosides, secoisolariciresinol diglucoside, p-coumaric acid glucoside and ferulic acid glucoside, can be found in commercial breads containing flaxseed.

    Flax seeds contain high levels of dietary fiber as well as lignans, an abundance of micronutrients and omega-3 fatty acids. Studies have shown that flax seeds may lower cholesterol levels, although with differing results depending on the sex of the consumer. One study found results were better for women whereas a later study found benefits only for men. Initial studies suggest that flax seeds taken in the diet may benefit individuals with certain types of breast and prostate cancers.

    A study done at Duke University suggests that flaxseed may stunt the growth of prostate tumors, although a meta-analysis found the evidence on this point to be inconclusive. Flax may also lessen the severity of diabetes by stabilizing blood-sugar levels. There is some support for the use of flaxseed as a laxative due to its dietary fiber content though excessive consumption without liquid can result in intestinal blockage. Consuming large amounts of flax seed may impair the effectiveness of certain oral medications, due to its fiber content. Flaxseed has shown to lower the concentration of pro-inflammatory oxylipins in humans as well as lower blood pressure in patients with peripheral arterial disease and high blood pressure/

    Flax seeds contain 23-percent 18:3 Omega-3 fatty acids (mostly ALA) and 6-percent 18:2 Omega-6 fatty acids. Flaxseed oil contains 53-percent 18:3 Omega-3 fatty acids (mostly ALA) and 13-percent 18:2 Omega-6 fatty acids. One of the main components of flax is lignan, which has plant estrogen as well as antioxidants (flax contains up to 800 times more lignans than other plant foods contain).

    flax seed meal


  • Botanical & Common Names: Linum usitatissimum, Annual Flax, Common Flax, Ama, & Linseed Flax

  • Flax seed has become popular in the mainstream market. It can be found in a number of forms, including oils, oil capsules, whole seeds, ground seeds, and as an ingredient in breads, cereals, muffins, and breakfast bars. Since 80 percent of Americans may be deficient in the omega-3 essential fatty acids that flax provides, flax is one of the most important and most widely accepted of the herbal health foods.

    CONSTITUENTS: Flax seed contains 50 to 60 percent alpha-linolenic acid, extremely concentrated source of lignans (up to 800 times the concentration found in other foods).

    PARTS USED: Seed, whole or ground into a meal.

    TYPICAL PREPARATIONS: Oil, whole seeds, ground seeds, capsules, and added liberally to breads, cereals, muffins, and breakfast bars.

    USES: Flaxseed is a basic anti-inflammatory used to relieve pain and tissue damage caused by rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis, lupus, osteoporosis, irritable colon, diverticulitis, gastritis, enteritis, breast cancer, chronic constipation, and colon damage caused by laxative abuse. It also lowers cholesterol levels and may protect against atherosclerosis. Flaxseed can also be used as a poultice to draw blood to the surface to remove deep-seated inflammation, or as a moist warm compress to relieve pain or inflammation. The essential oils in flaxseed help promote brain health in newborns and unborn children.

    PRECAUTIONS: The fibers in flax can interfere with the absorption of prescription medications, nutritional supplements, or the nutrients in other foods. Take flax seed products 1 or 2 hours before or after meals, medications, or vitamin supplements. Flax seed should not be used for extended periods of time and it is considered a bulk forming laxative and adequate water must be taken with it.

    There are many products that contain Flaxseeds and Flaxseed Oil. Flaxseed oil is an absolutely unique gift of nature. It is used in medicine as well as cosmetology and diets. It contains vitamins A, E, B, K, F, pollyunsaturated fatty acids which perform the function of energy suppliers to the inner organs and tissues, participate in the formation of cell membranes and reduce the risk of heart diseases. 1 to 2 tablespoons of the oil daily satisfies the daily normal requirements in unsaturated fatty acids.

    To restore the proper omega-6 / omega-3 balance, health care practitioners recommend dietary supplementation of omega-3 rich flax oil. There are many forms of Flaxseed available. It is important to read product label directions before use. Research has shown that in order for this fatty acid to be fully available to the body it must be tied to a sulfur-based protein, and the best natural source for that is cottage cheese, or you can use MSM supplements to achieve the same results.

    There are no known side effects or interactions associated with Flaxseed oil when taken in the recommended doses.

    Flaxseed oil has repeatedly been demonstrated to be non-toxic and is generally recognized as safe for human consumption. The cyanogenic glycoside linamarin occurs at low levels in the seed and cannot be detected in flaxseed oil. Cyanogenic glycosides are common food substances and are particularly toxic when consumed in larger quantities in staple foods like cassava. Flaxseed is not a staple food and the cyanogenic glycosides do not present a feasible risk in flaxseed product consumption.

    Flaxseed oil can become rancid if not properly stored. Be sure to read product recommendations for proper storage.

    Some individuals may experience side effects:
    • Diarrhea, meterorism or gases in the gastrointestinal tract may be caused by consumption of oil in big quantity.
    • Possible allergic reaction in people allergic to flaxseed.
    • People, suffering from blood coagulation, may raise the risk of bleeding if taking the oil.
    • It slows the absorption of medicines and other nutritional substances, that is why you should consult your health care provider before you start taking the oil.


    Both oils contain Omega-3 fatty acids. However, fish oil contains eicosapentaenoic and docosahexaenoic acids, which are used by the organism directly. Flaxseed oil's Omega-3 fatty acid still has to be converted into eicosapentaenoic and docosahexaenoic acids to be used by the organism. This process is quite complicated. That is why you should opt for flaxseed oil if you are a vegetarian or allergic to fish oil.
