linseed oil can be refined and unrefined.

Refined obtained by pressing and extraction, unrefined - only compression.

refined oil should be clear, transparent, no sediment, have a greenish-yellow color, bland taste and smell.

Crude oil is divided into two classes: 1 st and 2 nd.Taste and smell clean, not bitter, the sludge is allowed (by weight): a first grade of not more than 0.05%, in the 2 nd - 0.1%.The moisture content and volatile substances is not more than 0.3% in both varieties.
oil must be stored in accordance with the requirements of GOST.
As the drug should be used only pharmaceutical drugs flax oil and flax seeds.
Avoid fakes and surrogate preparatov- they may interfere with your health!

chemical composition .Seeds contain flax seed mucilage (12%), fatty oil (30 - 48%), which is composed of glycerides of linolenic (35 - 40%), linoleic (25 - 35%), oleic (15-20%), palmitic, and stearic acids.The seeds are composed of proteins (24%) and linamarin glycoside, carbohydrates, organic acids,

enzymes, ascorbic acid, and carotene.

linamarin glycoside form hydrocyanic acid in the decay.This requires caution (!) Using the flax seed in the medical practice.
gums linen in hot water swell, acquire the ability to envelop the inflamed mucosa and soften the effect of various stimuli.

in flaxseed oil are also vitamins A, E and enzymes.
flax seeds contain a sufficiently large amount of copper, manganese, zinc, which makes it possible to obtain these micronutrients in sufficient quantity from 20 - 30 g of raw material.
about the healing properties of flaxseed oil has been known since the ancient inhabitants of Colchis.It is known that Hippocrates, the "father of medicine", apply linseed oil to reduce inflammation of the gastric mucosa, pain and burns.
In ancient Egypt, linseed oil is widely used in cosmetology.
In the north-western part of Russia, Ukraine and the Polesie region of Belarus linseed oil was considered not only medical, but also a necessary product of the daily diet.
With the development of civilization, flaxseed oil has been supplanted by cheaper and easier to manufacture - sunflower, corn, soy.Only in recent years, linseed oil once again attracted the attention of researchers.
is no coincidence that in the developed countries, whose population is concerned about the problem of preservation of health and active longevity, linseed oil consumption is booming.In the US, widely promoted salad dressings based on linseed oil, and flax seeds are required in the diet of school feeding.In Germany, linseed oil pour vegetable salads, seasoned cheese, adding salt and cumin.In Canada, linseed oil used in the production of margarine.

growing number of nutritionists the world come to the conclusion that flaxseed oil allows you to make a significant step toward improving feed.
What is so attractive flaxseed oil?What's so unusual?First
its composition.The main components of linseed oil - unsaturated fatty acids (alpha-linolenic and linoleic), which are absolutely necessary for the life of the human body from birth and throughout life.These acids are contained in significant quantities in the human brain, and their transformation products found in breast milk.Linoleic acid is an essential component of cell membranes.

Research scientists from various countries indicate that flaxseed oil, affecting the level of cholesterol and triglycerides (the main "culprits" of atherosclerosis) decreases the risk of blood clots.For example, consumption during the month of dietary bread with the addition of flax seed at 8% lowers cholesterol and thus - the risk of coronary heart disease, myocardial infarction.Side effects at the same time is not revealed.
overdose of flaxseed oil is also impossible: the excess oil is simply removed from the body naturally.Also important factor cheapness: linseed oil is 10-15 times cheaper than, for example, fish oil.
Linseed oil and flax seed products are used in the prevention of cancer.It has long been recognized that the most important thing in the fight against this scourge of the century - prevention and, above all, the normalization of metabolic processes.Necessary create metabolic balance lignans - photochemical substances, which are also found in supplements that are based on flax seeds.In addition to its primary function of lignans have a very wide range of action, antibacterial and antifungal effect.According to the results of complex research, conducted in the US demonstrated that lignans help to slow down the process of cell division in some tumors neutralize estrogen receptors, which provokes an excess of breast cancer in women.

most rich source of plant lignans is flaxseed fiber.Furthermore, alpha-linolenic acid in flax seed oil, has an anti-carcinogenic properties.

It is difficult to overestimate the importance of the medicinal components of linseed oil.
Clinical studies have demonstrated the therapeutic effects of the inclusion in the diet of linseed oil in the treatment of diabetes Type II diabetes (insulin-dependent), multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, eczema, psoriasis and many other chronic inflammation.Markedly improved kidney and urinary system.Scientists believe that 30 - 40 grams of flaxseed oil a day completely satisfy the body's need for fatty acids.
From prevention to linseed oil can be taken in smaller quantities: for tea or dessert spoon daily.Leads, for example, the following data: taking one tablespoon of flaxseed oil helps to reduce blood pressure level to 9 mm Hg.Art.
production of linseed oil is complicated by a number of problems.Firstly, oil can only pressing of the seeds of plants grown without use of fertilizers or pesticides containing heavy metals.This increases the complexity of cultivation culture.
Secondly, oil production technology requires strict temperature conditions at the expense of productivity, the use of expensive equipment, and others. This is due to the fact that during chemical reactions when heated distillation unit above 35 degrees in the presence of oxygen, an alpha-linolenic acid loses itsbeneficial features.Which is actively engaged in the production and processing of the cultivation of this important technical culture -
Currently, the federal program "in Russian goods Len" operates in Russia.

Online pharmacies and food stores are increasingly appearing products from flax oil and flax seeds.
should be noted that the therapeutic activity is due to an ordinary flax seed content of mucus and glycoside linamarin.Due to the presence of mucus
flax seeds belong to a mild laxative.After swelling in the gastrointestinal tract, flax seeds irritate the mucous membrane of intestines and thus increases peristalsis.

Speed ​​promote intestinal contents also activates fat oil.
In addition, preparations of flax seeds have a coating and anti-inflammatory effect.Mucus flax seeds appointed interior as an expectorant in inflammation of the respiratory tract, digestive tract, urinary organs, acute gastric ulcer and duodenal ulcer, with food poisoning, as well as constipation.When mucus colitis is also used as a therapeutic klizmochek.
Fresh linseed oil is used for many diseases.In particular, it is necessary to allocate diseases such as gallstones and kidney stone disease, hemorrhoids, dysentery, spastic colitis.
linseed oil Linetol synthesized drug used for the prevention and treatment of atherosclerosis, obesity and other diseases, leading to abnormal lipid metabolism disorders, hypercholesterolemia.
widely used flaxseed for skin diseases such as inflammatory and degenerative, allergies, burns.In folk medicine, herb use as flax, taking it as a tincture, and others.
Powders of flaxseed is used for poultices for burns and skin diseases, inflammatory processes in the skin and subcutaneous tissue.The effectiveness of oil due to a significant content in it carotene and alpha-tocopherol, essential fatty acids:. linoleic, linolenic, etc.
Linseed oil is used for the preparation of ointments and emulsions, which are used for skin diseases, burns, including solar and radiation.
Fatty oil from flax seed has a favorable effect on the mucous membrane of the gastrointestinal tract, enveloping it with a thin layer, thus contributing slip stool, facilitating the healing of erosions and ulcers, easing defecation.
linseed oil cooked green soap, soap alcohol, which is used topically for skin diseases.
important to emphasize that flaxseed oil has a pronounced anti-sclerotic effect.
current pharmaceutical and food market of the CIS countries occupied mostly linseed oil production Tver firm "Ekol".This company produces linseed oil cold pressed.Flax seeds are subjected to molding at a temperature not higher than 40 - 45 ° C, all useful biologically active substances, vitamins, phospholipids, unsaturated fatty acids retain their structure and function.It is therefore not to be heat treated linseed oil.
known that when old "hot" method of producing flax seed oil linseed previously heat treated, calcined, and then pressed at high temperatures.Of course, the oil yield increases with this method.This oil has a flavor close to the crude sunflower oil, and about the same smell.However
"hot" method of preparation leads to the destruction of the most valuable components of flax oil which are polyunsaturated fatty acids: linoleic (Omega-3) and linoleic (Omega-6).These substances are not synthesized in the human body, why and named nezameninymi (still referred to as "herbal vitamins" F ").The human body must be a balance of omega-3 and omega-6, which is proved by scientists, is essential for normal metabolism.
Keep in mind that omega-6 is available, in addition to flax, in sunflower, soybean, rapeseed, mustard, olive (small amount of) oil, and Omega-3 found in sufficient quantities only in fish oil.The linseed oil content of Omega-3 is almost twice higher than in fish oil.
Keep flaxseed oil is necessary, away from direct sunlight and heat.At the pharmacy spill oil stored in dark bottles in a cool place, otherwise it will lose its beneficial qualities.

repeatedly explain that the basic value of linseed oil is the high content of unsaturated fatty acids in the oil which is greater than any of the known oils.linolenic acid content exceeds 60%, and linoleic - more than 14%.
Indications for use of flaxseed oil and flax seeds for medicinal purposes are extensive for both prevention and treatment directly to: atherosclerosis, heart attack, stroke, diabetes and many other diseases.
Independent researchers emphasize that the intake of omega-3 prevents the development of colon cancer and breast, and other cancer sites.
One of the diseases of the century - diabetes.The basis of treatment of this disease is a diet that limits the intake of carbohydrates and fats.Therefore preference should be given to the consumption of unsaturated fats, such as linseed oil.Patients with diabetes who regularly consume flaxseed oil, reduces the incidence of diabetic neuropathy.This is what gives rise to recommend flaxseed oil for people with diabetes.
Substances contained in flaxseed oil have a positive impact on the skin and hair, promote healing of damaged tissue.
important to emphasize that the effect of linseed oil components occurs not only when using a pure preparation of linseed oil, but also when using milled and whole flax seed.Because many recipes use of flaxseed can be effective in a number of complex diseases.
Flaxseed oil has a beneficial effect on fat metabolism.Many people, especially women, are addicted to a variety of low-fat diets, trying to abandon the use of fat, but often it does not give the expected result because the restriction does not rebuild fat fat metabolism.Such patients with obesity should establish a balance of fats consumed, prefer unsaturated fats, such as linseed oil.
Use linseed oil is also very important, and it is suitable for vegetarians and people, in whose diet is not a fish oil which contains unsaturated fatty acids.On the content of unsaturated fatty acids, flaxseed oil is superior to fish oil 2 times, with this particular smell, peculiar fish oil.
In the cold linseed oil is particularly good use for fresh salads and vinaigrettes.It can be mixed with sour cream, mayonnaise or other ingredients for making sauces.
linseed oil can be charged with any porridge, boiled potatoes, add it to the first and second courses.Very tasty and useful to fill linseed oil cheese with herbs.

treatment of atherosclerosis

previously believed that the underlying mechanism of atherosclerosis is associated with age-related lesions in hypercholesterolemic vessel walls.In the light of modern ideas atherosclerosis is linked to the autoimmune processes that may occur at any age.
In recent years, atherosclerosis gripped broad layers of the population, including young people.However, the disease occurs predominantly in men aged 50 - 60 years and for women - after 60 years.
most characteristic of atherosclerosis for residents of countries with highly developed economies.In this case atherosclerosis increasingly affects vital organs - heart and brain, which can lead to serious complications (heart attack, stroke, limb ischemia, etc..), Or even to premature death.
very significant in the development of atherosclerosis pathological features of metabolism of fats, carbohydrates, and fat-protein complexes.Research has shown that atherosclerosis in the tissues decreases the amount of high-energy phosphate compounds, copper, manganese, iodine, cobalt and vitamin deficiency occurs, decrease oxidative processes and changes occur in the connective, glandular and muscular tissue.It is also important that there is a violation of the functional and structural integrity of the inner lining of arteries.
development of atherosclerosis is associated with a number of factors, the nature and effect of which hitherto insufficiently studied.Among these factors, genetic predisposition plays an important role.However, the manifestation of the disease is possible with a certain combination of adverse factors acting on the body from the outside:. Psycho-emotional stress (stress), smoking, overeating, excessive consumption of animal fat, decreased physical activity, etc.
Atherosclerotic changes occur in various organs and tissues.In this case the patient's complaints are varied.
