Flaxseedoil

Were you looking for information about Flaxseed Oil? Flaxseedoil is a common misspelling of flaxseed oil.
 
Flaxseed oil is taken from the seed of the flax plant and may have several health benefits. The active component of the oil is a type of omega-3 fatty acid that may promote heart health. This fatty acid may reduce inflammation and decrease the ability of platelets to stick together (an important step in forming blood clots). Although flaxseed oil is not likely to have any side effects, high doses of it may cause diarrhea or loose stools.
