5 Benefits of Flaxseed

1- Flaxseeds are a great source of fibre and act as a natural laxative. I like to think about it as an exfoliation of your intestines, but that might be an over-share :)

2- Contains Omega-3 Fat which your body does not produce on its own- benefits include reducing inflammation, preventing fatigue, and keeping nails and hair healthy and strong.

3- Ground flaxseed helps lower cholesterol and regulate insulin levels.

4- Flaxseeds are a good source of magnesium- benefits include keeping your blood circulating smoothly and building/strengthening bones.

5- High concentration of lignans which are found in plants and may help prevent against certain types of estrogen dependent cancers such as breast cancer.
