Advantages: great for eczema
Disadvantages: tastes unpleasant
This is a little publicised remedy. Flax oil (linseed oil) is one supplement that just isn't common knowledge yet. It tastes not too good (rather like drinking ear wax), but is excellent for eczema. It is also reputed to prevent cancer, but I'm not sure about that, as a lot of things are being promoted as cancer-prevention nowadays.
For eczema, it works wonders, and is well worth the taste for the relief it brings sufferers.
It comes in bottles at around £10-£15 a half litre (500ml). Only buy oil in dark glass (light reduces the effectiveness), and rather like oliove oil, cold-pressed oil is best. You can NOT add it to food, as heating it destroys the effectiveness. You need to add it to food or drink it cold.
