Foods Alive offers the cleanest and best-tasting organic golden flax seed on the market. We receive samples from several certified organic flax farmers and make each sample into both our crackers and cold-pressed flax oil. Then after careful consideration, we choose the best one. You just can't beat that kind of diligence these days, right?
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.
You can add golden flax seeds to just about anything, but we'll still list some options for you. Throw some in smoothies or shakes, sprinkle on top of a delicious salad, add to a granola or trail mix, and you can even add them to baked goods, such as breads or muffins. You can even grind these up and add them to your Budwig recipe for more fiber.
