The benefits of flax seed are becoming well known. It is one of the most beneficial foods there is. Flaxseed oil provides an important essential fatty acid, plus antioxidants, protein, minerals and good fiber.

The best way to get the oil, is to eat flax seed with a high oil content. Extracted oil is often rancid and therefore not healthy to consume. There are no bad side effects of the whole flax seed.

Flax oil is a key source of Omega 3 fatty acids that are important for good brain function and calm nerves.

Flax seed is also rich in a special class of antioxidants called lignans that help protect against many health problems, as well as high quality proteins, a variety of minerals and an ideal mix of both soluble and insoluble fiber that is appreciated for improved bowel elimination.

Super foods like Northern Edge® organic milled flax seed, Delicious Greens with 8000 ORAC units of antioxidants per serving, organic spirulina, flower pollen extract and herbs, are very important to be added to the diet for the minerals and phytonutrient compounds they provide.
