Flax seed is a superfood, so packed with nutrients and fiber that it’s worth including in the diet every day. I can’t imagine oatmeal without it and it’s the perfect addition to green and fruit smoothies. It’s delicious sprinkled on rice, potatoes or yogurt, too. A secret ingredient that makes a good thing even better.

Facts on Flax

  1. Flax seeds are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which are important for overall brain health as well as for preventing memory loss and depression.
  2. Including flax seeds in your diet can lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels as much as 25 to 65 percent, especially in women.
  3. Eating flax seeds daily stabilizes blood sugar and can reduce the effects of diabetes.
  4. A 3 tablespoon serving of flax seeds is as rich in omega-3, -6 and -9 fatty acids as one pound of fish.
  5. Flax seeds are rich in fiber: 3 tablespoons contains one half the daily requirement.
  6. Flax seeds are rich in soluble fiber that carries toxins out of the body.
  7. Flax seeds are rich in lignans—800 times more than any food on earth—which may help fight prostate cancer, ovarian cancer, breast cancer, osteoporosis and cardiovascular disease.
  8. Lignans also decrease the severity of hot flashes and decrease inflammation related to diseases like arthritis and lupus.
  9. Flax seeds are high in protein, containing 10 grams in each 3 tablespoon serving
  10. Flax seeds are rich and filling, with their high-fiber content and omega-3 fatty acids, and create a full, satisfied feeling.
