The tiny super seed that’s been around for generations!
Flaxseed, also known as linseed, is sourced from the flax plant and is one of nature’s richest plant sources of Omega 3. The plant itself is cultivated for its seeds as well as its fiber.
Although flaxseed can be consumed whole, whole flaxseeds pass through the body without being digested, acting only as roughage (i.e. fiber). Therefore your body misses out on most of flaxseed’s nutritional benefits. As our flaxseed is ground it is much more bio-available, making it easier for the body to absorb the nutrients such as Protein, Omega 3, Lignans, Vitamins & Minerals, as well as soluble & insoluble fiber.
Calcium is needed for the maintenance of normal bones and teeth.
Aids digestion and helps to maintain healthy cholesterol and blood sugar levels. Fiber also helps with satiety, so you feel fuller for longer.
Iron plays a role in energy release in the body and helps reduce tiredness and fatigue.
Omega 3 ALA (alpha linolenic acid) is an essential fatty acid which our body does not produce and therefore must be obtained through our food. ALA contributes to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels, reduces inflammation and increases metabolism.
