…My sister said that — curious from reading this blog — she increased her daily dose of flaxseed oil from one capsule (10 calories) to 1 Tablespoon (110 calories) per day. She noticed three positive effects. One is that the skin around her fingernails improved. It cracked less often. (I’d say the same — hadn’t realized it until she mentioned it.) Another, first noticed by her dentist (“I didn’t say anything”), is that her gums were in better shape. The third, more subtle than the first two, is more energy. She has noticed no negative effects.
