  • Nutrition Tip

    Flax seed is one-third oil, the remainder consisting of fiber, protein and mucilage. The protein in flax seeds is easily digested and contains all the amino acids needed for building a strong body.

    The fiber in flax acts as a broom, sweeping the colon of toxic material, metabolic waste, and dried mucus. Flax fiber is an excellent food for friendly bacteria in the intestine, which keeps disease-causing organisms in check.
