    I am 55 yrs old and really LOVE Flaxseed.....I was on Lisinopril 10mg and Zocor 20mg for like 6 years, and these 2 drugs were messing my body up and giving me Erectile Dysfunction. I found out that a heaping table spoon of Flaxseed with each meal and another 2 capsules of Fenugreek with my largest meal cause my total cholesterol to drop quite a bit. Since I'm a man, it causes my HDL to dr ... Show Full Comment

    I have struggled with cholesterol all my life and my body didn't receive the statin drugs too well so I was led to seek out alternative methods. I use the Barlean's Flax Oil capsules and have been taking 3-4 capsules per day. My cholesterol level dropped from 318 to 280 without prescription meds in a matter of months. In addition to taking the oil, I also increased my fiber intake, cardio ... Show Full Comment

    I took ground flaxseed in oatmeal and within 2 months my cholesterol dropped from 230 to 116. I did watch what I was eating, salad for lunch and at dinner whatever I wanted. My husband has a heart condition and since he started taking the flaxseed and had such good results he no longer has to take a statin drug.

    My Doctor wanted me to go on statins for high cholesterol and I asked if I could have 2 months to try to lower it by diet. Along with ground flax seed, I added walnuts, cinnamon and blueberriers to my daily oatmeal. My LDL went down 40 pts in the 2 months! No statins for me! My good cholestrol also went up and my BP went down. All in all I'd say it was a success.
