Our News letter talks about balancing Cholesterol naturally by eating linseed oil (flaxseed oil or flax oil) into to your diet. A teaspoon a day of the omega 3 ALA alpha linolenic acid found in our oil will balance your cholesterol.
Autumn has finally arrived at the Farm! The fields have now been ploughed and the seed has been harvested and is now ready for cold-pressing and milling. We only press and mill every 10 days to make sure our oil and ground seed stays as fresh as possible.
Our pure freshly pressed linseed oil can help balance cholesterol. A recent EU directive stated that 2mg of ALA per day, the plant based Omega 3 found in linseed oil, helps to lower cholesterol levels. (Source: 2009, 7 (9): 1252, EFSA - Europa). The balancing effect is noticed at the 2mg level (this is about a teaspoonful or 5 Pods).
