Foods Alive offers the cleanest and best-tasting organic golden flax seed on the market.

- Flaxseed is a powerhouse of nutrition, delivering three major benefits: they're a great source of essential fatty acids like Omega-3 and Omega-6, they're packed with fiber, and they're high in lignans, which may be associated with lowered risk of heart disease, osteoporosis, and more.
- Put these in a grinder and make your own organic ground flaxseed. The seeds have a two-year shelf life, far longer than ground flax seeds. You can add golden flax seeds to just about anything, including smoothies or shakes, sprinkled on a delicious salad, added to granola or trail mix, and you can even add them to baked goods, such as breads or muffins.
- Add to Budwig Protocol, granola, yogurt, energy bars, crackers, soups, sauces, dips, breads, or sprinkle them on salads, pasta, and more for a unique nutty flavor!
- Farm to table fresh and ready to eat! Gold Flaxseeds are a powerhouse of nutrition.
Flax has three powerful health benefits: the EFAs your body needs for a healthy heart, a high amount of body-cleansing fiber, and the all-important lignans. Flax seeds are a great source of so many of the enzymes and nutrients your body needs, including protein, vitamins, phytonutrients, lignans, and fiber. By eating flax, you will help to promote normal cholesterol levels, your digestion should improve, and you should generally feel better. Flaxseeds are 35% oil and 55% of that oil includes the crucial omega fatty acids. Remember, both omega-3 and omega-6 are essential fatty acids that should be included in your diet to promote good heart health.
The lignans found in flax are also low-glycemic carbohydrates. Therefore, they slow the absorption of sugar in the intestinal tract. Remember, it is very important to chew or grind the flaxseeds in a coffee grinder. If the seeds are not crushed, they will pass through your system intact and you will lose some of the important health benefits.
