Flaxseed – Good For The Bowls And Good  Your Brains 

The main category for flaxseed in plant medicine is as a bulk laxative.

The truth is that flaxseed works in two ways as a laxative.
1.    High fiber content creates bulk laxative
2.    Oils in the seed help to add a lubricating and emulcent effect
The oils from flaxseed also contain a high concentration of omega 3 oils.
The fatty coting that covers the dentraite part of neurons is made up of omega 3 fatty acids. This fatty layer help the nerve signals to move faster. This is one of the reasons that omega 3 is known to improve memory and brain function.

Omega 3 is essential fatty acid, which means we cannot produce it in our bodies and must obtain it from our nutrition.

Omega 3 has also been found to have anti-inflammatory activities.

But keep in mind that most of the research done on omega 3 has been done on fish oils which contain EPA and DHA form of omega 3.

ALA is the form of omega 3 found id flaxseeds and can be turned into the EPA and DHA forms.
Just for a bit history:

Fax seed has also been used for making linen even by Neanderthal man.

Flax seed oil is a great source of omega 3 for vegans

But omega 3 from fish oils is still more effective for increasing brain functions.
