Omega Nutrition Organic Flax Seed Powder 454g
Flax Seed Powder
Ground flax seeds have been consumed as food for around 6,000 years. Flax seed benefits could help you improve digestion, give you clearer skin, lower cholesterol, reduce sugar cravings, balance hormones, fight cancer and promote weight loss.
Flaxseeds are small, brown or golden-coloured seeds that are the richest plant source of plant-based omega-3 fatty acids, called alpha-linolenic acid (ALA).
The health-promoting components in flaxseed are associated with improved cardiovascular health. In 2014, Health Canada approved a health claim that linked eating ground whole flaxseed to blood cholesterol lowering, a major risk factor for heart disease. 16 g (2 tablespoons) of ground flaxseed supplies 40% of the daily amount shown to help lower cholesterol. The daily amount referred to in the claim is 40 g (5 tablespoons) of ground whole flaxseed to be consumed over three eating occasions in the day.
The average North American consumes 10-20g of fiber daily, about half the recommended amount. The recommendation is based on a correlation between high dietary fiber intake and improved health. There are two types of fibers: water-soluble and water-insoluble. We need both types to maintain good health. Nutri-Flax stands out from other supplements of its kind because it contains generous quantities of both fibers.
Nutri-Flax is a certified organic, partially defatted ground flax seed fiber high in plant lignans. Plant lignans are photochemicals associated with foods high in dietary fiber. Plant lignans are converted in the colon by bacterial fermentation into a form that can be used by humans. Lignans demonstrate a broad spectrum of biological activities, including anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal effects.
To obtain maximum health benefits from the freshest product possible, Omega Nutrition uses its exclusive omegaflo process to manufacture and package Nutri-Flax. The omegaflo process protects the nutrients in flax seed fiber against the damaging effects of light, excessive heat and oxygen.
