FLAXSEED

Flaxseed has been used for centuries as an herbal remedy. There is strong evidence it can help reduce the risk of heart disease, cancer, stroke and diabetes. It has a protective effect against cancer, particularly breast, prostate  and colon cancers. It is also very rich in antioxidants.

Flaxseed is very rich in omega-3 essential fatty acids that have been shown to have heart-healthy effects. Research also suggests that daily intake of the lignans in flax may improve blood sugar levels in diabetics. It is also helpful for symptoms of menopause.
