They say the dog is man’s best friend, but maybe flax seed is! This is why:
- It is a rich source of alpha-linoleic acid (ALA), a mostly plant-based omega-3 fatty acid, which reduces inflammation in the body.
- Contains up to 800 times more lignans than other plant foods, which is a powerful antioxidant known to help prevent certain cancers such as breast and prostate.
- Contains two types of fiber- soluble and insoluble, enhancing digestion, regulating blood sugar, lowering cholesterol, and can aid in weight loss.
- A high quality protein rich in the amino acids arginine, aspartic acid, and glutamic acid.
