Flaxseed oil is something that you may have heard of because of its potential for aiding in weight loss. Although it is not as widely popularized as raspberry ketones or green coffee extract, flaxseed oil has been associated with weight loss. However, this tiny seed has many uses and is not limited to only being a potential weight loss supplement.
