Health Benefits and Nutrition info
Brown Flaxseed is considered to be one of the most powerful plant foods on the planet. There’s substantial evidence it may help reduce the risk of heart disease, some types of cancer, stroke, and diabetes. Although flaxseed contains all sorts of healthy components, it owes its primary healthy reputation to its Omega-3 essential fatty acids, the lignans it contains, which have both plant estrogen and antioxidant qualities, and its fiber, both the soluble and the insoluble types.
Brown flaxseeds also known as linseed come from the flax plant, which is cultivated for its seeds as well as its fiber. The seeds are a little larger than sesame seeds.
Flaxseed was cultivated in Babylon as early as 3000 BC. In the 8th century, King Charlemagne believed so strongly in the health benefits of flaxseed that he passed laws requiring his subjects to consume it. Now, centuries later, some experts say we have enough research to back up what Charlemagne suspected.
