Flaxseed - An ancient seed that packs a nutritional punch
Flax is a powerful plant that dates back to the Stone Age in Western Europe. Its introduction to the Western Hemisphere moved across the United States and Canada beginning in the 1800s. The flax plant has been used industrially as livestock feed, in fine paper manufacturing and upholstery padding.3 Flaxseed is the nutritional powerhouse of the plant and used in a variety of applications across product categories as a dietary source of fiber and polyunsaturated fats supporting both heart & digestive health.
Flaxseed contains both soluble and insoluble fiber. While soluble fiber helps to support healthy cholesterol and blood sugar, insoluble fiber supports a healthy digestive system.4 Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids are essential fatty acids. It is important to have a balance of omega-3s and omega-6s in the diet.5
