Organic Whole Flaxseed - 454g (16oz.)
Flax Seed (also known as common flax or linseed) is grown in cooler regions of the world. Flax is grown for its oil, used as a nutritional supplement. Flax Seed is Rich in Omega-3 Fatty Acids: Omega-3 fatty acids are a key force against inflammation in our bodies. Mounting evidence shows that inflammation plays a part in many chronic diseases including heart disease, arthritis, asthma, diabetes, and even some cancers.
This inflammation is enhanced by having too little Omega-3 intake (such as in fish, flax, and walnuts). Most of the oil in flax seeds is alpha linolenic acid (ALA). ALA is an Omega-3 that is a precursor to the fatty acids found in salmon and other fatty cold-water fish (called EPA and DHA).
Because not everyone is able to easily convert ALA into EPA and (especially) DHA, it is best not to rely solely on flax for your Omega-3 intake. Fatty acids disrupt malignant cells from clinging onto other body cells. In addition, the lignans in flaxseed have antiangiogenic properties - they stop tumours from forming new blood vessels. However, ALA also has good effects of its own, and definitely helps in the Omega 3/6 balance. Yes, flax seed is high in most of the B vitamins, magnesium, and manganese, but this little seed is just getting started.
