About Flax

Flax is a bluish-purple flowering plant that is abundantly grown in cooler, northern climates. As flax matures, it produces flaxseed, a high-fiber oilseed that is rich in omega-3 fatty acids. In addition, flaxseed has a high lignin content and also contains mucilage gums. This unique combination of nutrients-- omega-3 fatty acids, high-lignin content and mucilage gums-- have many health benefits, including relieving skin conditions, lowering cholesterol, eliminating constipation, and reducing inflammation and heart disease. No other commonly eaten nuts or seeds contain such a combination of healthy nutrients.
