Description :

    Flaxseed, or linseed (Linum usitatissimum L.), comes from the flax plant, which is an annual herb. The ancient Egyptians used flaxseed as both food and medicine. In the past, flaxseed was used mostly as a laxative. It is high in fiber and contains a gummy material called mucilage, both of which expand when they come in contact with water. They add bulk to stool and help it move more quickly through the intestines.

Benefits :

  • Their insoluble fiber aids digestion, helps keep you regular and prevents constipation.
  • Flaxseeds are also high in soluble fiber, which helps you feel full so you're less likely to overeat.
  • Flaxseeds may also help lower blood pressure.
  • One small study compared flaxseed to hormone replacement therapy (HRT) in menopausal women.

  • Flax meal is used to improvise digestive health and mitigate constipation. It can be consumed in various different ways which can help to reduce the risk of heart disease.
  • Its antioxidant properties have proven great health benefits and it helps to prevent disease by removing free radicals from our body.
