flaxseed oil


Johanna Budwig, a German biochemist, developed the Budwig diet in the 1950s. The diet consists of eating Flaxseed oil mixed with cottage cheese and milk. She thought that it made omega-3 fatty acids more available to the body’s cells. She also believed that the oil could stop cancers from growing. 

Cold pressed linseed oil (Linum Usitatissimum) is used as an additive to body oils and its application is intended for oily, cracked skin prone to inflammation. It has an anti-inflammatory, softening and anti-itch effect. Moreover, it stimulates regeneration of the dermis and epidermis, softens scabs and accelerates the healing of burns, decubitus ulcers, ulcers and abscesses. It works against the creation of blackheads. Linseed oil is excellent for skin and lip care. Linseed oil / Flaxseed oil can be easily used both internally and externally – directly on the skin, hair and nails.

The main components of flaxseed oil are the triglycerides of unsaturated fatty acids: linoleic, alpha-linolenic and oleicn and the saturated fatty acids: palmitic and stearic. By means of cold pressing, linseed oil, apart from maintaining its fatty acid triglyceride content, also contains biologically active ingredients such as vitamin E (the so-called “youth vitamin”), β-carotene, lutein and plastochromanol-8.
