What are the side effects of too much flaxseed?

My trainer told me to eat more of it, but how much?

Too much flaxseed can result in digestive discomfort including gas, bloating and diarrhea. It could also potentially cause a disruption in the menstrual cycle as well as increase the risk of bleeding, including vaginal bleeding. Try flaxseed oil supplements and follow the dosage guide on the label to ensure safety precautions.

Flaxseed can cause gout, oily skin, weight gain, indigestion and can have a laxative effect. Switch to chia seeds to get the benefits without the side effects.
