High in Omega-3
Flaxseed is one of the best sources of Omega-3 ALA in the plant world. Omega-3 plays an important role in promoting and regulating overall brain health, heart health, anti-inflammatory activity, and alleviation of menopausal symptoms and osteoporosis. It has been shown to decrease cholesterol levels and may lower the risk for heart disease. Health Canada recommends 2 tablespoons of flax supply 40% of the daily amount shown to help lower cholesterol.
High in Fibre
Flaxseeds contain both soluble and insoluble dietary fibre. The fibre in flaxseeds promotes healthy gut bacteria, encourages regular bowel movements, and reduces the amount of dietary fat you digest and absorb.
Rich in Antioxidants
Flaxseed is rich in the antioxidant Lignan, which can help prevent disease by removing free radicals from the body. There are several studies linked to the consumption of flaxseeds and decreased risk of cancer*.
