Anonymous found, to his surprise, that his martial-arts injuries healed faster after he started taking flaxseed oil (2 T/day). A comment about Popeye vitamins led him to stop taking flaxseed oil. Within ten days, his gums got worse, and his sports injuries became more painful. He has written again:
After going off flaxseed oil for about ten days and seeing all sorts of negative side effects, I have now been back on it for about ten days (this time with four tablespoons a day instead of two), and I am totally back to where I was before I stopped. Gums aren’t bleeding at all, joints and tendons don’t ache, and I feel great. Anecdotal evidence yes, but very persuasive to me. I have kept taking four tablespoons instead of the previously normal two because I think it increases my mental acuity
Very persuasive to me, too, regardless of what it is called.
