    Hi, I'm considering taking flax oil for fatigue, inflammation and hair loss. Has anyone experienced any negative side effects? Will it weaken my meds?

    Flax seed is a very important part of my day... I have never had any problems, some people say they get an upset stomach. Make sure to eat before trying it out.

    I have found flax to be beneficial in helping with MPS inflammation, lowering choloesterol mine went from 212 to 189 and overall just plain good for the body.

    I have been on 1000-2000mg daily for about 5 years and cannot find any negatives. Make sure it is a good cold pressed brand if using suppplements and keep them in the refrigerator or cool space. Don't put them in your bathroom medicine cupboard. Some women say it helps with PMS I haven't noticed that for me.

    Let us know how you make out,
