Flex Seed Oil, does not speed up metabolism; in the concept of the article you might has read - is with CLA.

A kind of fatty acids, you can build lean body mess with it; but to me, it's a smart way to advertise. Afterall, all the Omega 3,6 is found in your cooking oil; why not take a tablespoon of the cheap cooking oil in your kitchen? :roll:

it is spelt as Flaxseed oil. you can get it from Robinson, raffles city.
containing omega 3, 6, 9.

it helps to increase your metobolism rate, coz these are the fatty acid that fuel our mitochandra to burn stored fats in our body. Lacking of these fatty acid, no matter how little calorie or food you eat, the fat is still there. Coz, mitochandra is not fueled to burn fat, not put to work.

If you would like to read up, refer to books by Dr Pericone, Dr Linda Lazarides' or Dr. Leslie Packer. These are researcher who has their own clinic, lab and papers. With proven records of their founds & advice.

I have a friend who was advised to take flaxseed oil months before her wedding to help burn her fat.

She did and I heard her thank her adviser over the phone after her wedding.

Well, i think this is a healthier way to burn fat. But I doubt it can help burn plenty of fat if she is obese.................hahhahahaa

All this Omega3,6,9 is basically beneficial; because they're under the non-saturated fat; is suppose to be good for the health.

Type GLA, ALA cat. oil are in flax seed oil, organic flax seed oil, borage oil, black currant seed oil, safflower oil, rice bran oil, jojoba oil, almond oil, grapeseed oil, apricot kernel oil, sesame seed oil, rice bran oil, pumpkin seed oil, perilla seed oil and evening primrose oil.

Flaxseed oil is rich in EFA, which in the same category includes Evening Primose oil, Borage oil, Sunflower oil some of it 're cooking oil.

There's types of cooking oil, just take a good reading for monounsaturated, polysaturated fats etc. is quite cheap. =)

Flexseed oil is particularly rich in EFA, which is an ideal source to be 'made' into a health supplement.

We need these EFA to survive, but what most people has been reading are what informations that you can find online, books etc.

Try something new, from what u normally reads;

"The agency noted that the studies that reported a correlation between high intakes of omega-3 fatty acids and low rate of CHD mortality also noted an increased rate of stroke, particularly hemorrhagic stroke"

"FDA also concludes that there is not significant scientific agreement for an unqualified claim about the relationship between EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids and reduced risk of CHD. Thus, a health claim stating that "Omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of CHD" would be misleading. "

CHA - Coronary heart disease.
FDA - Food and Drug Administration

Flaxfeed oil is used to build lean body, from a smaller frame to a bigger frame.

But again, there're many studies done; all results 're different. :lol:
