HI,
I have read many times here that people recommend flax oil. My son is haveing some problems with constipation, and needs some help softenening his stools. When I went to the archives on the subject many people suggested flax, so I bought a bottle of organic Flax. But there are no instructions on how much to give and it says "NOT recommended for people under the age of 18"!!? I am hoping someone can give me a little more info on this oil before I give any to my babe. Thanks

Happily married : to my wonderful DH and mama to my sweet 's 4/00 and 10/08

Sorry, I don't remember exactly what flax oil does, besides provide essential fatty acids that many do not get in their diets. If you want the real lowdown, I suggest you obtain Udo Erasmus' book, Fats that Heal, Fats that Kill
I hope that helps you out.
