Linseed or Flax the Definitive Answer
Linseed and flax are often confused, if you are a farmer in this country growing Flax you are growing a fibre plant which is used for linen. So you see there is no such thing as flaxseed oil. The flax plant is taller than linseed and is pulled by hand or nowadays by machine. So when you see products called flaxseed or flaxseed oil it will almost certainly be linseed or linseed oil. The linseed plant is shorter and generally has a bigger seed with more oil. The latin name for linseed Linum usitatissimum means most useful, and it has been used in all its forms for many thousands of years.
"As you say in your leaf let, Omega 3 does seem to be beneficial to me !! I was taking fish oil for the past couple of months, I’ve switched to your product. I have extremely dry skin and whilst I can’t boast that it has become smooth and radiant (after all I am over 70 !!) it has visibly improved and I feel pretty good."
