Flax (Linum usitatissimum) is a beautiful blue flowered plant grown on the plains of Central Canada and the North Central United States. Medical research has taken great interest in Flax Seed. Study after study confirms that the oil and fiber components of Flax Seed are wonderfully health promoting and curative for many diseases.

? Flax Seed has a high ratio of linolenic (omega-3) to linoleic (omega-6) fatty acids. While many other plant seeds contain omega-6 fats, flax seed is the only grain that contains the highest levels of the essential omega-3 fats.
 ? Flax Seed oil is the richest source of OMEGA-3 fatty acid, alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), an ESSENTIAL FATTY ACID (EFA). Your body requires EFA‘s and must derive all of them from the diet. The average American diet is sorely lacking in this healing EFA.
? Flax seed is unique. Forty-eight percent of it?s total fat content is omega-3 fatty acid. Omega-3 fatty acids are necessary for proper infant growth and development, especially for the formation of a healthy nervous system, and to help keep it functioning properly.
? Flax Seed is an outstanding source of many essential nutrients, including: proteins, carbohydrates, minerals, folate, vitamin B-6, pantothenic acid, magnesium, potassium, iron, thiamine, copper, zinc, calcium and phosphorus. Flax seed also appears to have anti-inflammatory properties.
