Flaxseed is a remarkable super food that is very beneficial for your health and well-being. Intergrading flaxseed into your daily diet has many benefits such as lowering your cholesterol and blood pressure, helps fight some cancers, helps balance blood glucose to help people manage their diabetes better and fights against heart disease.

Some of the vitamins and minerals found in flaxseed are: vitamin B1, vitamin B6, vitamin E, calcium, fiber, magnesium, zinc and healthy dose of omega-3 fatty acids.

Flaxseed comes in different forms such as natural seed form, flaxseed powder and flaxseed oil. The taste is nutty and can be added to many of your recipes and even sprinkled on sandwiches and salads for that little extra flavoring and great health benefits to boot.

Flaxseed is wonderfully simple, fast and a healthy nutritional addition to your daily health regime for the person on the go. Carry some with you to work in a zip-lock baggie and start sprinkling on your lunch.
