Flaxseed Oil - Oil Pressed From Flax Is Incredibly Rich In Both Omega 3 And Omega 6 Essential Fatty Acids If It Is Freshly Pressed And Unrefined. These Two Essential Fatty Acids Are Important For Immune System Development, Digestive Support, Healthy Brain Function, Soft And Smooth Skin, Circulatory Health, And Anti-Aging Benefits. Good for salad dressings, smoothies and uncooked.
Now I have to research the similarities and differences between fish essential oils and plant essential oils. I can't take fish oil with my new medication...I wonder about flax and borage oil, and now grapeseed. ARRGH!!!

I love the flax and borage oils, but the one I was taking was discontinued. I started taking the fish oil, then. But now with the Plavix, the fish oil has an increased bleeding risk. I need to know if the same is true with the flax or grapeseed.

I'm also upset I can't have my Ruby Red Grapefruit juice anymore, either.

At the rate I'm finding out what I can and can't have, I'll be down to cardboard and water. LOL!

I'm taking some med that says not to have to much grapefruit also. Not sure which one at the moment. But I drink a lot of Fresca and it doesn't seem to effect me to much. My numbers seem to be ok.

Blood Circulation
Borage oil benefits in regulating the blood circulation and also preventing blood clotting. Use of borage oil benefits a lot more in comparison with the regular dietary saturated fatty acids to reduce the risk of high blood pressure and hypertension. The GLA from the borage oil reduces the body serums and as a result helps the body to stay away from the high cholesterol levels and heart diseases. Borage oil benefits in preventing the atherosclerotic plaque that can be a major cause behind the cardiovascular diseases.

What I read:
Interactions can occur between grapefruit and Lipitor, resulting in an increased level of medication in the blood. If you are taking Lipitor, you should not eat or drink any grapefruit products, including supplements. The combination of the two can increase your chances of developing serious muscle problems, which can potentially lead to kidney failure or other life-threatening complications.

Makes me just a bit cautious, I have enough problems...

Grapeseed Oil Nutrition Facts
Grapeseed oil is beneficial for many medicinal problems. Let's take a look at the list which illustrates the grapeseed oil nutrition.
  • Grapeseed oil reduces LDL (bad Cholesterol) and increases HDL (good cholesterol), which in turn helps in keeping your arteries clear.
  • Omega-3, Omega-6, and Omega-9 are the fatty acids found in grapeseed oil. These fatty acids benefit us by forestalling any heart diseases and influence the biological properties in our body. Read more about Omega-3 essential fatty acids.
  • Grape seed oil contains high levels of Vitamin E, which is a fat-soluble antioxidant. It aids in preventing any cell membrane related injuries.
  • Grapeseed oil helps the immune system and increases the blood circulation as well.
  • After any surgery or an injury, grapeseed oil reduces the swelling faster than any other medicines.
  • Flavonoids found in grape seed oil work to inflect cell-signaling pathways. Oregon State University states, "The Flavonoids have an antioxidant behavior that responds to iron and copper that bond to proteins". Read more about flavonoids health benefits.
