Flaxseed is a great whole grain that provides a lot of nutritional benefits, including high levels of potassium, magnesium, healthy fat, Omega 3 Fatty Acids and the all-important fiber.
It can be used over cereal, yogurt, in smoothies and protein shakes and is also available in organic oil form that is perfect for vegans and vegetarians.
Flaxseed has been shown to help encourage cardiovascular health, and due to its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties it can protect skin tissue.
Another great perk of using this whole grain is it helps to prevent cancer because it contains high levels of Omega 3-fatty acids.
