Health Benefits of Flax
Flax contains the omega-3 fatty acid, alpha-linolenic acid (ALA); fibre; and lignans. Health experts prescribe these nutrients and other compounds for better health.
Omega-3 fatty acid. About 42% of flax seed is oil, and more than 70% of that oil is polyunsaturated fat, a healthy fat. Flax also contains 57% of the important omega-3 fatty acid, ALA.
Extra fibre. Flax seed contains soluble and insoluble fibre. Soluble fibre can lower blood cholesterol levels, while insoluble fibre moves the stool through the colon more quickly, helping bowel movements.
