If large amounts of linen are taken for laxative purposes without an adequate supply of fluids, intestinal occlusion may occur.

Linen also has anti-inflammatory, emollient and soothing properties. It is thanks to these activities that the plant is able to give relief in case of inflammation of the skin, so much so that this therapeutic use has been officially approved.

It was one of the first domesticated crops: since ancient times it has been widely cultivated in Ethiopia and Egypt; dyed linen fibres dating back to 30 000 B.C. were found in a cave in the Republic of Georgia

Thanks to the high mucilage content inside the linen, the use of this plant has been officially approved for the treatment of constipation.

Linen is used as an internal remedy for constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, diverticulitis, gastritis and enteritis.
