I'm taking 1/2 tbls of flaxseed oil twice a day while on my juice fast in hopes that it may aid as an appetite suppressant as well as a good Omega-3 fatty acid. It's really an experiement, but I'm wondering if anyone has tried using flaxseed oil in conjunction with a juice fast, or if anyone has a comment on this. Thanks! :D
Thanks for the info and for the response! I also found a few detox menus that use flaxseed oil in conjunction with juice fasting as well, so we must be on some track! :D
I read that flaxseed oil acts as an appetite suppressant because it coats the stomach and slows the process of digestion. That way anything in the stomach stays in there longer. I don't have the exact quote, but I can get it out of my book if you, or anyone is interested.
Yep, I've used flax seed oil in conjunction with a juice fast... I've used other oils as well, for the nutritional benefits, of course, as well as to keep my skin from drying out, as can happen on extended juice fasts...
