Flaxseed Oil Capsules

I have just discovered the "Diet & Nutrition" part of the Healboard. For some reason I had never looked at it before. I have read all the posts and have found some really interesting info.

Today I found out that I have very high cholesterol (thru a Health Fair). I will get in touch with my doctor but have decided to read up on everything I can in order to get this under control.

Several months ago I read some info about Flexseed Oil helping to lower cholesterol. I found some at a Health Food Store and purchased them. I have to admit that until recently I really didn't take them much. However at two weeks ago I decided they were not doing any good just sitting there.

I have read several posts that had to do with different types of Flaxseed but none that really addressed the capsules and also no mention of it being a cholesterol lowering aide. Does anyone have any info on this?

I'm just now (in my older age) really deciding that I have to do something about my eating habits. Hopefully it isn't too late and I can MAYBE undo some damage.

Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Flaxseed Oil Capsules

I do understand that this oil will help with a lot of stuff. My dad took it for kidney stones without sucess. It's worth a try.

Why don't you look into whole flaxseeds and grind them yourself. You have to grind them in a coffee grinder so that your body can assimilate the omega 3's when consuming. You can find flax at your local healthfood store and the stuff is very cheap costing around $1.39 a pound! Also, flaxseeds are high in fiber which have a positive effect on lowering cholesterol.
