Spectrum Organic Ground Flaxseed comes from premium quality, triple-cleaned organic seeds; no low-weight, broken or cracked seeds. It is great with yogurt, sprinkled on cereal or salads or used in baking. Flaxseed is a good source of dietary fiber, rich in alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), and Omega-3 essential fatty acid that supports healthy cardiovascular, circulartory and immune system functioning. It is also the best source of SDG lignans, phytonutrients that exhibit strong antioxidant properties and can have a balancing effect on hormones. It is packaged in new convenient resealable pouches.

Ground Flaxseed is a natural source of fiber (including mucilage), absorbing excess liquid, protecting the digestive tract and promoting bowel regularity. While the oil pressed from flaxseed is rich in Omega-3 Fatty Acids, the seeds themselves are also a concentrated source of lignans - phytoestrogens that are not only suggested to be able to regulate hormone balance but which also have have antioxidant properties.

Lignans are phytoestrogens found in high fiber foods such as cereals, grains, nuts, fruits and vegetables. Researchers have found flaxseeds to be the richest source of plant lignans, with a lignan content 100-times higher than its nearest competitor, oat bran. Once ingested, lignans have both an estrogen and anti-estrogen-like effect, similar to soy. Scientists believe the effects of lignans on estrogen metabolism, in addition to their antioxidant and fiber properties, may explain why populations eating diets rich in lignans have a lower incidence of cancer. Other studies indicate flax lignans reduce cholesterol and prevent atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) and diabetes in animals. Clinical studies are currently underway to see if the same effects apply to humans.

Flaxseed has been a coveted source of health for millennia. Ancient Egyptians and Greek physicians like Hippocrates touted its ability to cure various ills. In the 8th century A.D., King Charlemagne thought flax so essential to health that he wrote a series of laws requiring his subjects to consume a certain amount each year.
In more recent centuries, classic herbal medicine texts note that flaxseed oil has been used to relieve gastro-intestinal pains and infections, colic and hemorrhoids. Applied topically, flaxseed oil was mixed with calcium oxide to use on burns, and blended with honey to remove facial spots. The seeds themselves have been used for a bevy of ailments—from alleviating constipation to treating coughs, colds, respiratory infections and urinary tract infections.
