Was having terrible hot flashes. Usually 2 an hour. Night sweats too. Started taking Flax Seed oil capsules once a day & my hot flashes are gone! No side effects so far. I feel like shouting from a mountain top! What a difference! I should've done this a long time ago.

I started Flaxseed oil to clear my acne....IT WORKS because my acne is hormonal. Yet, although I have a clear face now...I am experiencing crazy depression. I think the oils are re-organizing my hormonal make up and I am feeling some side effects that I am not sure I want to feel.
