A wonder food around for over 5000 years, Organic Brown whole Flax Seeds blend a myriad of health benefits with a pleasant, nutty crunch!
When consuming flax seed, it is important to stay properly hydrated, otherwise it can cause intestinal discomfort. To prevent this, it is recommended that no more than 2 tablespoons of raw seed or 3 tablespoons of ground seed should be taken at one time.
It has been suggested that flax seeds aid in everything from promoting healthy hair and skin to reducing bone loss and helping prevent cancer. While the jury may still be out on some of these claims, what is definitely true is that flax seeds are a great part of a healthy diet! A rich source of Omega-3 essential fatty acids (also found in fish and thought to reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases and high blood pressure), flax seeds are high in protein, fiber, iron and B Vitamins as well. They also contain more lignans, fiber-like compounds with antioxidant properties, than any other plant-based food.
