I believe in the benefits of flaxseed oil but had to stop using it personally. I had/have a choking problem associated with my thyroid. I had felt like it was resolved or resolving with my Iodine therapy and had forgotten that flax was bad for my thyroid. So I thought, "I should pull with flaxseed oil to increase my omega 3 oils," but then my choking problem came back which caused me to suddenly remember flax is a goitrogen.
So I would say it could be worth a try to someone who isnít hypothyroid.
