Abstract The effect on serum lipids of a flax seed supplement consisting of three slices of flax seed-containing bread and 15 g of ground flax seed was studied in 15 hyperlipemic subjects on long-term intake (800 IU/day) of vitamin E. The flax seed, which was high in alpha-linolenic acid and fiber, and which has been reported to lower serum cholesterol in elderly subjects, was provided in a 3-month feeding trial. Serum total and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels were reduced significantly; high-density lipoprotein cholesterol did not change during flax seed consumption. Thrombin-stimulated platelet aggregation decreased with the supplement. Serum lipid oxidation products decreased significantly during the washout period.
