Hi,
I was just wondering if anyone took Flax Seed Oil caps to help with constipation and to try to keep regular. I'm using Milk of Magnesia, which my Dr. suggested, but I wanted to try something in a capsule form, and also something more natural.
Any input would be appreciated.
Shelley

Hi Shelley, I eat Red river cereal or sunny boy cereal, they are the same different brand. They both contain flax seeds, rye and cracked wheat. I eat it about 4 or 5 times a week and since then my constipation has disapeared. You will find the cereal with the other hot cereal like oatmeal. When it was real bad I used to put a teaspoon of flax seeds in a cup of camomile tea, it looked weird but you could not taste them and they did the trick so I dont see why flax seed oil would not work. Good luck, hope this helps you.

I used ground flax seed meal found at a health food store. I put it hot cereal in the morning and drink herbal tea with it. It has a gritty texture when raw, but a nice nutty flavor. Drink lots of H2O during the day (preferably filtered/bottled). My chiropracter suggested this. Works for me!
It doesn't take much. Start out with a half a teaspoon of meal a day and work from there either way, until you get the desired results. I like it because it's so natural.

I also use digestive enzymes and probiotics.
Try the first suggestion first, and if that doesn't work, add the rest. Good luck, whatever you decide!

It gives me "D" , as it acts as a natural laxative per the GNC store.

try this site out,good luck

Barlean's Organic Oils guarantee you the highest quality, best tasting flaxseed oil anywhere, at any price. Many of the nation's leading experts on health and nutrition exclusively recommend Barlean's Organic Oils due to their understanding of the importance of high quality, biologically active essential fatty acid rich oils.
Not all flax oil is created equal. Like other oils, there is tremendous variation in quality and purity as a result of differences in how the oil is expressed. The best method of producing flax oil is by mechanically pressing out the oil through an expeller. This method produces a high quality oil compared to solvent extraction or the use of air pressure (supercritical extraction).

The down side to a mechanical press, however, is when the oil passes through the expeller a tremendous amount of pressure and heat can be generated. The higher the heat, the better the yield of oil. Temperatures generally reach 200 degree F. Interestingly, flax oil processed in this manner can still be referred to as "cold-pressed" because no external heat was added.

Although high temperatures, as well as supercritical extraction, will provide a greater quantity of oil, they produce a lower quality oil. Many manufacturers will sacrifice quality for quantity. However, consumers must be aware that because flax oil is highly polyunsaturated oil, it is extremely susceptible to damage by heat, light and oxygen. Once damaged, the oil is a rich source of toxic molecules known as lipid peroxides. These molecules can actually do the body harm and should not be ingested. Lipid peroxides are associated with an extremely bitter taste and rancidity. One of the best ways to measure the quality of a flax oil is by taste. The degree of bitterness is a close approximation of the level of lipid peroxides.

Hi
I take flaxseed oil every day. At first it really helped with the constipation , but now it only helps somewhat. It does make my hair and skin softer though! I give it to my son for excema and it seems to help that too. I take a tablespoon of the oil or put it on salad. It doesn't taste too bad to me. It does come in capsule form too.
