Organic Flax Seed Powder
Flaxseed is a highly prized seed for its impressive nutritional profile and health incentives. It is scientifically termed as Linum usitatissimum which denotes the “most useful” seeds and also known as common flax, linseed oil, or linseed.
Most people recommend ground over whole flaxseed because the ground form is easier to digest. Whole flaxseed may pass through your intestine undigested, which maybe you won't get all the benefits. Flaxseeds' health benefits come from the fact that it's high in fiber and omega-3 fatty acids, as well as phytochemicals called lignans. Flaxseed is commonly used to improve digestive health or relieve constipation. Flaxseed may also help lower blood cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein LDL or bad cholesterol levels may help to reduce the risk of heart disease. Like other sources of fiber, flaxseed should be taken with plenty of water or other fluids. Flaxseed shouldn't be taken at the same time as an oral medication. As always, consult with your doctor before starting.
Tips for including flaxseed powder in your diet: Add a tablespoon of ground flaxseed to your hot or cold breakfast cereal. Add a tablespoon of ground flaxseed to mayonnaise or mustard when making a sandwich. Mix a tablespoon of ground flaxseed into 8 ounces container of yogurt. Bake ground flaxseed into cookies, muffins, loaves of bread, and other baked goods.
