In brief: Possibly inflamation
Flaxseed oil is a source of polyunsaturated fatty acids such as alpha-linolenic acid.
The alpha-linolenic acid and related chemicals in flaxseed oil may decrease inflammation. That is why flaxseed oil is thought to be useful for rheumatoid arthritis and other inflammatory diseases.

In brief: Best not to heat
The health benefits diminish when flax seed oil is heated.
When purchaing flaxseed oil, it is quite important that it be cold pressed & not heat pressed. In general, flax seed can help to lower cholesterol & low-density lipoprotein levels & thus helps reduce the risk of heart disease.
