Flax Seeds Benefits

Flax seeds supply your body with alpha-linolenic (omega-3) and linoleic (omega-6), which are the most essential fatty acids that are essential to our health. Upon ingestion, your body converts these highly reactive fatty acids into phospholipids, required by the membranes surrounding the cells and the organelles within. 


According to the American Nutrition Association, flax seeds are a neglected food for the body and skin. 
"....its content of mucilage makes . . . flaxseed the best natural laxative available. It sooths and protects the delicate stomach and intestinal lining, prevents irritation, and keeps the contents moving smoothly along. Because it absorbs water and swells (it reaches about three times its dry volume so this much liquid should accompany its consumption), the stools don’t become hard and dry."
