Among the products of plant origin, flax seed oil contains the largest amount of essential omega-3 fatty acids. These acids come in only with food and are not synthesized by the body. In addition, this oil contains a large amount of vitamins and microelements: phosphorus, B vitamins, as well as A, E and many others. Therefore, linseed oil is taken both internally and as an external agent.
Flaxseed oil is rich in thiamine and niacin. These substances smooth out fine wrinkles, and retinol stimulates the production of elastin and collagen, which are responsible for skin elasticity.
Also, the oil is useful for enlarged skin pores, increased oil content and a tendency to inflammation. Retinol normalizes the sebaceous glands and evens out the complexion, while choline relieves irritation.
