Flax Seed Oil is one of the best supplements around. We love the stuff. It
stimulates brown fat cells and increases the metabolic rate making it much
easier to burn off extra fat. Furthermore, Flax Seed Oil is the hard gainer's
ultimate weapon. It's an easy way to increase your fat and calorie intake
without risk of it being stored as body fat. You can't grow muscle without
eating fat and Flax Seed Oil is the healthiest source of fat on the planet.
Omega-3 fatty acids are part of the family of Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs). There are so many positive health benefits to EFA supplementation outside of bodybuilding that it's difficult to know where to begin. Reduced blood pressure, healthier skin and hair, relief of arthritic symptoms, reduced incidence of heart disease... the list goes on. Steroid users benefit from Flax Seed Oil because it helps reduce the typical bout of "'roid zits" at the end of a cycle.
Some old-school bodybuilder's are hesitant to increase their fat intake in any way for fear that if they eat fat they will get fat. False. No one has ever gotten fat from consuming flax seed oil--in any quantity. Even the muscle magazines have jumped on the band-wagon and are now touting the benefits of Flax Seed Oil.
On top of all this, the lignans in our Flax Seed Oil have been shown to have potent anti-estrogenic effects. This is of special interest to bodybuilders who are always looking to increase the testosterone to estrogen ratio. Here's one cheap, natural way to do it without putting yourself on the wrong side of the law!
EFAs are particularly important to the athlete because they are used in the natural production of steroid hormones. Studies show individuals following a low fat diet lacking in EFAs have much lower testosterone levels than those following the same diet, but supplementing their EFA intake.
As if all of this weren't enough, there's evidence that EFA supplementation may improve the function of the anabolic hormone insulin.
