Flax seeds have gained a lot of notoriety in the past few years. Studies have shown flax helps lower cholesterol and may stunt the growth of prostate cancer. Many of our customers use ground flax to lose weight. They simply sprinkle flax on their foods and because flax is almost flavorless it doesn’t get in the way of their meals. Flax seeds are packed with high levels of dietary fibers, omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants. Because the husk of the flax seed is so tough you must grind it before ingesting it to reap all its benefits.
