For centuries, flax seeds have been prized for their health-protective properties. Nowadays, flax seeds are emerging as a “super food” as more scientific research points to their health benefits.
Their health benefits are mainly due to their content of omega-3 fats, lignans and fiber. They are proven to have heart health benefits and are linked to a lower risk of stroke. They have powerful antioxidant and estrogen properties. They may help in preventing breast and prostate cancer, as well as other types of cancer.
Just one tablespoon provides a good amount of protein, fiber and omega-3 fatty acids, in addition to being a rich source of some vitamins and minerals.
Store in a cool dry place.
