“Before 2006, I always had the misconception that oils were only used for cooking, never as a healthy food to be consumed on its own. When I discovered fresh-pressed flaxseed oil back in 2006, I had been taking 33 pills every day for 5 months to combat the symptoms of my Crohn’s Disease. Flaxseed is a foundation oil to rebuild the structure of the cells. When I began using the flaxseed oil, it eased the inflammation throughout my body, aided in digestion, and helped me sleep better through the night. The flaxseed also alleviated the joint pain and inflammation that remained after my career as an Olympic gymnast ended back in 2000.
Even after recovering completely from Crohn’s Disease, my Andreas Premium Flaxseed Oil is a staple for me, and is incorporated into my morning regimen to start my day off right. The abundance of allergies that I once had no longer exist; I have freed myself from allergies, from dust and pet hair to food, only with the use of flaxseed oil. I also take my Premium Flaxseed Oil twenty minutes before I go to bed and sleep soundly through the night. I only rely on my oils for health, and do not take any additional supplements, with the exception of probiotics from time to time.”
-Andreas Wecker, Founder of Andreas Seed Oils
Flaxseed oil (also known as Linseed oil) is highly recommended for general well-being and whole body nutrition. It is an excellent source of the omega-3 essential fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), as well as phytoestrogens known as lignans. Considered to be nature’s richest vegetarian source of omega-3 fatty acids, required for the health of almost all body systems, flaxseed oil contains twice the amount of omega-3 fatty acids as fish oil. Flaxseed oil also contains omega-6 and omega-9 essential fatty acids, B vitamins, potassium, magnesium, dietary fiber, and manganese. It is also a good source of the minerals copper, phosphorus, and iron.
Studies have shown that due to the ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acids, along with being a rich source of lignans and a multitude of nutrients and minerals, flaxseed oil may be beneficial for management of the following health conditions: aiding in the prevention of bacteria, fungi, and viruses, allergies, arthritis, inflammation, chronic pain, atherosclerosis, cardiovascular health, reducing cholesterol, immune function, Crohn’s Disease, Lupus, Lyme Disease, cancer prevention, menopause, skin defense against acne, eczema, and psoriasis, improving health of hair and nails, improving digestion and elimination, improving cognition and concentration, reducing the risk of Alzheimer’s and other aging diseases, and helping repair cell membranes, amongst a host of other health and wellness-related conditions.
Ingesting Andreas Premium Flaxseed Oil allows one to maximize the effectiveness of the beneficial properties found in the seeds, without the potential digestive issues sometimes associated with eating the seeds themselves.
