North Americans are usually lacking omega 3 essential fatty acids in their diet, and flax seed oil is an excellent supplement for this. The cells of the body need the omega 3 fatty acids to build their cell membranes, which protect them. The brain is largely composed of fats called phospholipids, which are made from essential fatty acids. Thus these oils are essential for the function and structure of the brain and improve cognition, memory, moods and concentration.

You can add the flax seeds to cereal, salads, protein shakes, rice, or just eat them plain. You can add flax seed oil to other liquid drinks, or just drink it straight. A good plan is using 1-2 TBSP of the ground flax seed and 1/2 TBSP flax oil in the morning and before bed. Also use 1 TBSP of flax seed oil with 1 other meal during the day. You want to get 1-3 TBSP a day.
