A few months ago, Joyce Cohen, who writes The Hunt column for the NY Times Real Estate section, started drinking 2 tablespoons of flaxseed oil every day. She began after talking with me and because of stuff posted here. Yesterday she went to the dentist for the first time since she started drinking it.
“Jane the hygienist said my gums were in great shape — better than ever,” she wrote me. Meaning the best they’d ever been.
“What’s funny is you can’t FEEL good gums from inside your mouth, but I take her word for it.” The hygienist said that although she was scraping and scraping, there was no bleeding.
Joyce started with Spectrum Organic flaxseed oil without lignans but later switched to the oil with lignans. She despises the taste but finds it is most palatable mixed with yogurt.
