Flax Seed Oil

15 posts in this topic

I've been suffering from pregnancy constipation. In the past i have always used flax seed oil gel capsules. When i started getting constipation i decided to take it again . I have only taken the capsules like 5 times in the four months. Didn't think it was dangerous, there was no warning on the bottle. And i have heard it is good to have some flax. I looked up in the internet and it says that FLAX is not recommended!. I am know extremely worried that i have caused damage of some kind.

I tell my sister to use chlorella and spirulina for her pregnancy related constipation. She could not believe the instant relief. There is great health benefits to using these two products as well. I have recently heard that too much flax is not good for you for some reason. I don't recall why exactly.

If you look up pregnancy and flax seed oil on the net it says its not recommended. They don't have clear studies yet but it affects your estrogen levels.

common sense tells me that you probably haven't harmed your baby. I didn't know this either, but read it the other day on the internet. I have a friend that has taken it daily with all four of her babies. Aloe vera isn't good either I guess. I don't think they really know much. I know primrose oil can stimulate contractions. THis would be the only legitimate reason I would think to not take it. Surely it isn't going to cause birth defects. I am just babbling I guess, but it doesn't make much sense to me.

Anna, I seriously doubt that you could possibly have harmed your baby by taking flax seed oil. It isn't like you were drinking it by the bottle!

Really, I don't think you have anything to worry about.

I know flax seed oil helps the body produce and raise testostorne levels, and when testosterone rises, estrogen levels usually go down. Thus it would make sense that women who are pregnant should not take flax seed oil, but I seriously doubt that 5 capsules over 4 months produced any negative effects on you or your baby.

I have never had a problem with flax seed in any form.

I am looking for a safe/ uncontaminated flax oil. I am new to this and I don't know if flax oil is a risk. I tried barleans and it seemed to be ok but I wanted a tried a true recommendation from someone if possible.

I agree, smells very much like spam. It's a first post.

With that said, flax seed (as with everything. . .in moderation) should be perfectly fine and even beneficial for you and your baby. Here's an article stating things with omega-3's are great.

Also. . congrats on your pregnancy!

I am 19 weeks now and certainly had constipation in the beginning. Eat prunes or drink prune juice. It helped me out a bit and then the problem resolved in time.

    • Thankyou ch88 you are so very kind, im so glad there are forums like this, so helpful.  Only signed up the other day and everyone is great.
    • My GI told me that everything looked great visually (endoscopy), but my biopsies revealed moderate to severe intestinal damage.  ☹️  You just have to wait for the pathologist's report.  
    • I ate there July 23 2017, had cheeseburger with gluten free bun (charged extra 2 dollars) which tasted very good. dressed burger with tomato, pickles and onion and even mayo with no unpleasant affects.  I appreciated the choice of gluten-free bun.  Also, the young man serving us asked if I wanted my French fries on the same plate as my burger, I guess their fries are not fried in a dedicated fryer.  Nice of him to give me a heads up though.  I am NCGS not proved as celiac disease.
    • I think you will find that aromatherapy is safe.  I have had the same thing when having facials many, many times over 12 years gluten free and have never, ever had a problem. I have never found any aromatherapy that contained gluten. I am a very sensitive, diagnosed Celiac.  As far as lotion is concerned, you won't have a problem if you wash your hands, which I cannot imagine NOT doing before eating.  That is Celiac 101.  You only have to screen hand lotions for personal use and anything that goes onto the lips.  Eye drops also should be gluten-free as you put that directly into the eye and it can make it's way down into your gut. Hair salons........no, never had a problem.  If a salon uses good products, they will not contain gluten. Again, in 12 years of checking anything new they use, never found any gluten component.  I color and trim my hair once a month and I'm pretty sure I'd be dead by now if I ingested gluten for so often for 12 years.  You really do not want to ingest anything that is sprayed and I can't say that I have.  It's a bad idea for many other reasons besides gluten. I know you are newly diagnosed and yes, you need to check ingredients BUT gluten is not everywhere. If you check whatever they are using and it does not contain the dreaded gluten, then do not worry about it.
    • There is a lot of information on site about living with Celiac disease. A good idea is to take a look at the "coping with" section and the "newbie info 101" thread. There is a lot of good information about cross contamination and proper nutrition.
