Test drive: Flax oil

We've all heard the wonderful things about flax seeds, flax meal, and flax oil by now, right? I was using flax meal on my oatmeal, but I don't eat oatmeal that frequently. So when my sister told me she believed taking flax oil capsules was helping her dry skin, I decided to jump on the bandwagon officially.

I have these capsules, and the directions tell you to take two of them, three times/day. There are a little more than two weeks worth of capsules in the bottle, so I'll be monitoring my skin for the return of some moisture (winter and frequent hand washing have left my cuticles a real mess), and maybe additional unexpected benefits. I'll be sure to report the results.

Anyone have flax oil miracles to share?
