Flax seeds are high in most of the B vitamins, magnesium, and manganese, but are most well-known for being rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) is one kind of omega-3 that is found in flaxseeds that helps promote bone health.
Golden flax seeds are a great source of fibre and work as a natural laxative. Eating flax seeds is a great way to keep your bowel regular.
Flaxseed oil contains concentrated amounts of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), an omega-3 fatty acid. Vegetarians and vegans often use this as a substitute for fish oil, although there are differing opinions over whether the omega-3 in flaxseed oil is as beneficial as that in fish oil.
Flax seeds are a good source of magnesium.
Flax seeds are very versatile and can be used in many different ways. They can be added to smoothies, breakfast bowls, baked in cakes and flapjacks, ground and used as a flour substitute and can be the basis for raw crackers (see recipe here). Or try making a flax seed tea, add 1 tablespoon of flax seeds to a flask with boiling water, leave overnight and drink in the morning for a hydrating and soothing tea.
