Golden Flax Seed by Flora
Flora Golden Flax Seeds Whole Organic 298 g
Flora's Golden Flax Seeds is a dietary supplement with natural fiber and lignans. Flora's Golden Flax Seed is a good source of all-natural, high-quality fiber. The bulking and mucilaginous properties provide a gentle stimulus to the digestive tract. Through a special process, Flora's Golden Flax Seeds are cracked rather than crushed or ground to ensure the maximum release of their nutrients without exposing the oil to oxygen. Flora's Golden Flax Seed is 100% certified organic (third party certification) and nitrogen-flushed when bottled to further ensure freshness. One tablespoon of Golden Flax Seeds provides 4 grams of Essential Fatty Acids, as well as amino acids, minerals and lignans.
Flaxseed has traditionally been used as a medicine for treating chronic or occasional constipation, as a soothing, non-irritating bulk laxative; for alleviating irritable bowel syndrome and diverticulitis (for this purpose, the flaxseed should be ground up prior to use in order to avoid whole seeds getting trapped and irritating the diverticular pouches); as mucilage for gastritis. Flaxseed and defatted flax (flax presscake) is beneficial as a source of flaxseed lignans, phytoestrogens with strong antioxidant activity for promoting cellular regeneration, cleansing and detoxifying and proven cholesterol lowering effects. Based on human, placebo controlled clinical trials, taking 50g of flaxseed/day in four flax muffins brings a 9.8% reduction in LDL cholesterol and 19.8% reduction in Lp(a) within three weeks. For this purpose, flaxseeds must be ground up first, because if they are eaten whole, they will not be digested and will pass right through the digestive tract. A small coffee grinder can be used to grind flaxseeds in under a minute. The coating action of flax mucilage provides a protective effect on the intestinal lining and mucosa and also soothes the mucous membranes of irritated or sore throats.
Take 1 Tbsp. (14g) 2 to 3 times daily in 8 oz (250 ml) of water or juice. Mix well and drink immediately. An additional glass of liquid is recommended. Flora's Golden Flax Seeds have a delicious, nutty flavor and may also be sprinkled on cereal, salads, soups or vegetables. Refrigerate after opening to maintain freshness.
