Organic Golden Flaxseed
Rich in Omega-3, High Fiber Content
Flax seeds are rich in important essential fatty acids (Omega-3), vitamins (B1, B2 and F) and minerals such as iron and zinc, enzymes, phytohormones, pectins and lignans. They represent one of the most abundant sources of linolenic acid (Omega-3 fatty acid), a valid help against oxidative stress.
Flax seeds have a high content of dietary fiber (27%), protein (20%) and mucilage (6-15%).
They are used to enrich dishes (e.g. salads or yogurt) or in the mixtures of bread and biscuits.
The soluble fibers (mucilages) help intestinal peristalsis, promoting the elimination of waste substances and protecting the mucous membranes.
Useful in case of habitual constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, diverticulitis, gastritis and enteritis.
Also useful in cosmetics, for the polishing and nutritive properties on the hair.
100% Linseed (Linum Usitatissimum L.) from organic farming.
They can be used as whole seeds (1-3 teaspoons) or suspended in sugar water (50-100 g) for a laxative effect.
They can be eaten raw to enrich salads or muesli.
You can prepare an infusion or a decoction.

Wow! Review by Julia M. (Leicester)
Big fan of flaxseeds! They really helps in regulating my digestion because of the high fibre content. I use this product every day in porridge, salads or baked goods. Just remember to let the seeds soak first!
