Tried it for a couple of weeks for hot flashes. Seemed to help but developed stomach problems. Stopped and was back to normal in a week.

Comment:
I've been taking 1 tablespoon of organic flaxseed oil for more than 2 years now - primarily to reduce the 12 hot flashes I would have in an 8-hour day at work. Not only have the hot flashes been significantly reduced (along with intensity), my cholesterol levels have improved and I no longer need to take a prescription for it.
