Flaxseed Oil Capsules
People may sometimes turn to flaxseed oil, found in capsules, to help improve heart health. However, the benefits of this supplement have not been proven. In addition, flaxseed oil may even have fewer benefits than actual flaxseed. Normal doses are probably safe for most people, although side effects such as diarrhea are possible. People with certain medical conditions may need to avoid this product altogether.
