Many benefits: I am not sure if all the benefits are known but flaxseed oil is claimed to help regulate the menstrual cycle, relieve hot flashes & reduce menstrual cramping & excessive bleeding. It is anti-inflammatory, reduces risk of heart disease & cancer, is good for skin & nails & may help with depression and anxiety. Choose organic "high lignan" flax oil.See
