Grown since the beginning of civilization, Flax Seeds are one of the oldest crops.
There are two types, brown and golden, which are equally nutritious and have been prized for their health-protective properties.
Interestingly, flax seeds' health benefits are mainly attributed to the omega-3 fatty acids, lignans and fiber they contain.
Furthermore, those following strict plant-based diets will benefit from flaxseed , as it favorably compares to fish oil in terms of omega-3s.
‘Fats don’t always make you fat’ so go ahead and add flax seeds to your diet for healthy joints, eyes, heart and brain.
