Flax is considered one of the longest-cultivated plants in the world. Today it is grown around the planet. Flax oil is used for pharmaceutical and technical purposes. Thanks to its high content of linolenic acid, flax oil positively influences fat metabolism, cholesterol levels and blood pressure. It also has anti-bacterial activity and strengthens the vascular system. It is used to make ointments and natural detergents. Its industrial use lies in the manufacture of oil paints, linoleum and to a lesser degree for soap, sealant and ink production.
