Have you heard of Flax seed? One day I was at an event and I saw an older woman with the most beautiful, clear, smooth brown skin I'd ever seen. I couldn't help but stare. When the event ended, I mentioned to her how beautiful I thought her skin was and asked what her secret was. She plainly stated, "Flax Seed". She said she took flax seed pills daily. She sighted that she took them in place of fish oil pills, and that it was how she got her omega 3 fatty acids and fiber. Prior to that, I'd never heard of flax seed, but I was familiar with the benefits of fish oils and have been taking cod liver oil most of my life. I decided to take her word, do some research, and eventually purchased my own.
