Ground flaxseed is a nutritional powerhouse, providing all 10 amino acids, trace vitamins and minerals, in addition to:
1. OMEGA-3: Flaxseed is the very best source of the plant-based Omega-3 ALA (alpha-linolenic acid), which the body converts into EPA and DHA, the Omega-3s found in fatty fish and fish oil supplements.
2. FIBER: Flaxseed contains both insoluble fiber (necessary for a healthy digestive system) and soluble fiber, which is thought to help to lower total blood cholesterol and LDL, or “bad,” cholesterol levels.
3. LIGNANS: Flaxseed contains Lignans, which are highly-studied antioxidant-rich phytonutrients with numerous health benefits.
