NOW Golden Flax Seed Meal, 22oz

NOW Real Food Organic Golden Flax Seed Meal has a mild, nutty flavor similar to wheat germ, and it’s often added to cereals, pancakes, muffins, breads, meatloaf, and even yogurt. Golden Flax is typically lighter in color and more flavorful than dark flax. Flax is a natural plant source of healthy fatty acids and a good source of fiber. Most Americans do not get enough fiber in their diet. Each tablespoon of flax contains about 8 grams of fiber, and this really helps keep the bowels regular.

The primary omega-3 fatty acid found in flaxseeds is alpha-linolenic acid, or ALA, the building block for other molecules that help prevent excessive inflammation.  ALA protects the blood vessels from inflammatory damage. When flaxseeds are consumed, two other omega-3 fatty acids have also been shown to increase in the bloodstream, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).These omegas support cardiovascular health.

Flax seeds are also rich in lignans, fiber-like compounds.  In addition to their fiber-like benefits, they also provide antioxidant protection due to their structure as polyphenols, and are very protective against breast, prostate, and other cancers. Flax seeds also have a high mucilage content, a water-soluble, gel-forming fiber that can provide special support to the intestinal tract.

Suggested Usage:

Due to its fiber content, Flax should be consumed with plenty of water.
