Ground flax seeds have been consumed as food for around 6,000 years.
Flaxseeds are small, brown or golden-colored seeds that are the richest plant source of a plant-based omega-3 fatty acids, called alpha-linolenic acid (ALA).
The health-promoting components in flaxseed are associated with improved cardiovascular health. In 2014, Health Canada approved a health claim that linked eating ground whole flaxseed to healthy blood cholesterol, a major factor for heart health. The daily amount shown to support healthy cholesterol is 40 g (5 tablespoons) of ground whole flaxseed to be consumed over three eating occasions in the day.
The average North American consumes 10-20 g of fiber per day, which is about half the recommended amount. The recommendation is based on a correlation between high dietary fiber intake and improved health. There are two types of fibers: water-soluble and water-insoluble. We need both types to maintain good health. Nutri-Flax® stands out from other supplements of its kind because it contains generous quantities of both fibers.
Nutri-Flax® is a certified organic, partially defatted ground flax seed fiber high in plant lignans. Plant lignans are photochemicals associated with foods high in dietary fiber. Plant lignans are converted in the colon by bacterial fermentation into a form that can be used by humans. Lignans demonstrate a broad spectrum of biological activities.
