The Benefits of Flax Seeds
Flax seeds are an excellent source of fiber and essential fatty acids. They also contain high levels of lignans, which are plant compounds that have been shown to have cancer-preventative properties. Additionally, flax seeds can help to lower cholesterol levels and improve heart health. All of these factors make flax seeds a truly super food!
