Video commentary on Flaxseed
There has probably never been a time when so many people are so concerned about their health as now. Although our diets have become richer as we have become more bored from the days of plain food, we cannot ignore the fact that our health risks have increased more than ever before. Flaxseed is a superfood that contains many important nutrients for a healthy life. In particular, it is rich in omega-3, which we are all deficient in. In this article, I will send you a video that introduces why we need to take omega-3 and how flaxseed is being used in Japan and overseas. We hope you will find it useful.

The health benefits of flaxseed oil are amazing, and some of you may already be incorporating it into your life.

The omega-3 fatty acids in flaxseed oil are dangerous if not consumed.
Healthy Living Channel / Effects of Flaxseed Oil (Dangerous if Not Taken)" by Takahiro Ebihara, Director of Miyakonojo Osteopathic Clinic (Physiotherapist, Expert Fasting Meister, Health Management Advisor)
Flaxseed oil is discussed from the perspective of an oil that everyone should be taking. There are three types of oils: omega-3, omega-6, and omega-9 fatty acids. Omega-3, which is alpha-linolenic acid, is found in flaxseed oil and sesame oil. Omega-3, which is alpha-linolenic acid, is found in flaxseed oil and sesame oil, while omega-6 is found in salad oil and sesame oil and is available to everyone on a daily basis.
Health risks such as obesity, worsening of atopic dermatitis, weakening of skin and internal organs due to hardening of cells, and increased carcinogenicity caused by too much omega-6 can be prevented by aggressive intake of omega-3. It can also improve Alzheimer's disease and infertility.
Most of the diseases that are common among people today are caused by an extremely poor "oil balance". The ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 is 1:1, and the ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 is 4:1. The ratio of omega-3s to omega-4s is 1:1, but the current ratio is 1:50, which is so unbalanced that it is causing serious health problems. The video recommends using flaxseed oil in your diet as a habit, paying attention to the right way to use and choose flaxseed oil, to help build a young body.
Explaining the health benefits of flaxseed oil
Nutrition Channel Nobunaga/"Flaxseed Oil" Health Law! Does Omega 3 mean you should only take EPA and DHA? What are the effects and concepts of flaxseed oil and alpha linolenic acid? Nobunaga Yoshitomi (YouTuber)
Flaxseed oil contains the most alpha-linolenic acid compared to other oils such as sesame oil and olive oil. alpha-linolenic acid can be expected to have various physiological and pharmacological effects, including anti-inflammatory effects. alpha-linolenic acid is converted into EPA by desaturase in the body, which acts as an anti-inflammatory agent to stop inflammation. The EPA is changed again by desaturase to DHA. This DHA reaches the brain and the retina of the eyes, and has a variety of pharmacological effects.
In the video, a study of more than 20,000 people in the Netherlands conducted over a period of 8 to 13 years found that the risk of stroke decreased with increased intake of alpha-linolenic acid, and a French study found that patients who had experienced a myocardial infarction were more effective in secondary prevention of coronary events and death when given a diet rich in alpha-linolenic acid.
The change in the omega-3 to omega-6 ratio between past and present Western diets is due to changes in alpha-linolenic acid rather than EPA and DHA. In addition, the article shows that alpha-linolenic acid is well converted to DHA, and that in order to get enough alpha-linolenic acid, you should take a teaspoon of flaxseed oil and choose a good quality one.

We will explain the current situation of excessive westernization, and improve the intake of oils containing omega-6, as well as confirm the lack of omega-3 in our modern diet. We will also discuss EPA and DHA, which are found in fish and can improve memory and learning ability, and how it is difficult to consume fish frequently in our diet.
This article explains the benefits of flaxseed oil from the point of view of making it easier to get omega-3s. It is organic and free of pesticides, and it is also a great match for fish sauce called "ishiru".

In recent years, we have not been getting enough omega-3 in our diet. The omega-3 in flaxseed is great for our body, protecting our brain cells. Omega-3, Omega-6 and Omega-9 should be consumed in the proper ratio, but we are not getting enough Omega-3 and we need more.
Flaxseeds are also a great source of fiber. Flaxseeds are very effective for smooth bowel movements, but they need to be ground into a powder to be effective.
Use a blender to grind the flaxseed into a powder. The article also mentions that you can use a coffee mill if you have one, and that you can add the powdered flaxseed to recipes or sprinkle it on top. It also mentions that flaxseeds should be stored in the refrigerator and that the important thing to remember when eating them is to eat them without heating them. However, according to our research, it is better to heat flaxseeds when consuming them directly because they contain some cyanide compounds, so you may need to be careful.
