Flax seeds boast a combination of omega-3 fatty acids, high-lignan content, and mucilage gums. Flax seeds also aid in digestion and make a great addition to baked goods or mueslis with their nutty and earthy taste! Flax seeds are also higher in polyphenol antioxidants than blueberries! The antioxidant benefits of flax have long been associated with the prevention of cardiovascular diseases and have recently been tied to decreased insulin resistance.
Note: It is best to soak flax seeds or grind them before eating to ensure optimum absorption.
