LINSEED OIL comes from the seeds of the flax plant, which is already being cultivated for many thousands of years including culinary and health-promoting purposes. Apart from vitamin E, it contains mucins and proteins, a balanced proportion of Omega-6 and Omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential for human health, but which cannot be produced by the body. LINSEED OIL can be taken as a food supplement or be applied externally.
