Excellent!This is an excellent quality flax seed oil. I have used it as well as NOW brand, and they both are high quality. It's best to keep it in the frig so it stays fresh longer. This is a great source of omega 3's and helps boost estrogen, too. (So maybe not best for estrogen dominant people.) It absorbs best if mixed with food (but not heated). I drizzle 2 tablespoons over a large salad.
I read the review of this product before I purchased. The package is good. The smell of the flaxseed oil is good. The taste is slightly bitter. I blend the oil with cottage cheese following Budwig's diet. The taste of the mixture is good. Since the oil is 100% flaxseed oil, I am very happy with this product.
I once bought Now Food flax and was disappointed when I realised halfway through that it was a blended oil. Since then, I look carefully at the ingredients before buying. You can't tell the quality from the packet, so I've been buying from here for a few years mainly, trusting them. I eat it on yoghurt in the morning. My husband doesn't eat it because it upsets his bowel, whether it is too effective or not suitable for his constitution.
Helps your ALA, which is an important ingredient for your Omega-3. Barlean's products are of a high quality. It is fresh cold pressed for maximum nutrition. I liked that the product was shipped quickly at a fair price, and that it is organic. I like that it is very fresh flax oil. Some people use it as part of the "Budwig Protocol" to fight cancer.
I bought the Barlean's Organic, Pure Flax Oil because it was highly recommended as the best product for seasoning cast iron cookware. I had a cast iron skillet that had become rusty from neglect. Following proper procedure I was able to restore the skillet to brand new condition. The finish once completed is incredible!
I saw someone on YouTube recommend this for hair growth and so purchased it as I was suffering from post partum hair loss. Needless to say my hair has grown tremendously and so has my daughters. My hair is strong where it was shedding and breaking prior and its soft. Even my edges have returned. Its fantastic. I massage it into my scalp nearly every day.
Barleans is an exceptionally fresh flax with a mild nutty flavor. The benefit list of flax is too long for this review; I must say that I had a one inch "mole" at my forehead hairline seen as benign by the plastic surgeon. After a few weeks, it disappeared leaving a small, thin colorless ridge. No surgery or stitches! I mix my flax with locally sourced low-fat plain yogurt. A few drops is great for the cat's coat, too. You can see the difference.
I love this flax oil - I add it to oatmeal or any porridge and drizzle it over cooked vegetables. Very high in Omega 3's so I have been able to stop taking fish oil capsules. I keep it in the fridge and use daily. I've discovered that I love the taste even though the smell is a little off-putting. iHerb has the best price and amazing free shipping with a reasonable minimum purchase amount - and their shipping is faster than other companies located closer to me in Vermont!
