Omega-3 is an essential fatty acid, which our bodies cannot make and must be obtained from our food.  The major benefit associated with Omega-3 is its contribution to helping maintain a healthy heart and promoting brain development.  It is commonly accepted that oily fish are high in Omega-3, however Flaxseed is becoming more widely acknowledged as a major source of Omega-3 (ALA).  52% of the fat in Flaxseed is the Essential Fatty Acid Omega-3 (ALA).

Flaxseed is also a great source of Iron, which prevents anaemia and keeps the red blood cells healthy and Calcium necessary for healthy bones and teeth.  Flaxseed is high in Dietary Fibre – both insoluble and soluble fibre.  Insoluble fibre helps maintain healthy bowel regularity and soluble fibre may assist in lowering cholesterol.  Flaxseed is also rich in lignin; lignin is a type of phytoestrogen – a form of antioxidant, which assist in eliminating excess free radicals from the body.

Not only will Linwoods Milled Organic Flaxseed deliver all these amazing health benefits, but it is sourced from the cool, clean Prairie climate of Canada, a country renowned for producing the highest quality flaxseed in the world because of the climate it contains 15-20% more omega-3 than other countries.
