Default Anyone Know Anything About the Affects LU6/Linun usitassimum?

Someone turned me onto an article several months ago about Linun usitassimum active fraction (LU6) and its impact on Type 1 Diabetics. The article peaked my interest so I did some searching on the internet. There are a LOT of articles from many sources, like websites, medical journals, universities, and so on.

These articles have all sorts of info on the affects of this vitamin on diabetics. There are studies and some info that claim that it has a significant improvement for diabetics.

I am just wondering if anyone here has any experience or knowledge about this. I have recently bought flaxseed oil pills and been taking them, but am unclear if they have this LU6 stuff they mention.

Well, I tried to post the links to the articles, but the forum isn't allowing it.

Maybe after a couple extra posts it will allow it?

Still won't work. This is crazy that I can't post a link.

It may have taken time for the system to realize you had enough posts to post links.

Okay, I have not looked at all four links. But this one -- "curing" Type 1 diabetes, which is caused by the body not creating insulin to counteract carbohydrates, by eating flaxseed?

Can't see how this could possibly work unless somehow the flax is providing sufficient insulin to manage a person's carbohydrate intake (and there aren't other factors that complicate efficient regulation of that insulin). The article is full of "coulds" and "possibles" and "indicates" but, still, I'm concerned about promoting something so scientifically dubious.

I do agree that the titles are "generous". I did not post the titles, just the links, but the forum apparently rewrites the URL's with the title.

Those are just 4 easily found pieces of info, BUT there is a lot of info out there on the subject. I do not see any writings about specifically a cure, but there are a lot of studies on this and very good test results. I know I saw some at major universities and hospitals, like the Mayo Clinic.
