Flax Seed?

My dad drinks Flax seed every day in a mixture of grape juice for his cholesterol. Now, it looks absolutely nasty--but it DOES have 15% Zinc in it. I'm not sure what that means exactly, but I've heard of people drinking Flax Seed Oil and getting good results from it, so I figured the regular Flax seed would work the same.

Any opinions? Am I totally wrong?

Re: Flax Seed?

You should have your essential fatty acids and flaxseed is just one part of it that's why it didn't do good for you.

Re: Flax Seed?

I eat flaxseed every day, and haven't seen a change in my skin. If you want to increase your zinc intake, use a supplement. Get zinc picolinate if possible.
