It has been proved that when human body lacks linolenic acid, it will take longer for retina to recover from reflect reaction, and the eyesight will turn bad. But linolenic acid is hardly to be assimilated from our daily food, which leads to a quite quantity demanded of human body. Flaxseed oil contains more linolenic acid and less fat nicely. Besides to supplement linolenic acid so as to improve human vision, it also helps about losing weight and blood fat and so on.
