Mahatma Gandhi once observed, "Wherever flax seed becomes a regular item among the people, there will be better health."
I doubt that he had investments in the flax industry, He just wanted to help people feel healthy.
I agree wholeheartedly because I've used flax daily for over 15 years now and it's helped me through the loss and maintenance of 100 lbs.
Do you have any flax in your kitchen? If not, you could be missing out on many health benefits including better digestion and weight loss. Why flax?
Flax has protein to help with hunger.
Flax has fiber to help us feel full and help aid digestion and elimination.
(Roughly 90% of people who lose a lot of weight gain it back and hunger is the main reason)
Flax has only a few carbs. When you subtract the fiber from the carbs flax has a very low net carb value.
Flax is a balanced food. Balanced diets help us with hunger.
Flax has omega-3 fatty acids. Women, especially need more omega-3's
in their lives.
Both kids and adults like the mild and nutty taste of flax!
