Description

Our Organic Brown Flax Seeds contain the highest amount of Omega-3 fatty acids available in plant form, higher than that found in fish oil.  The flax seed is a well-rounded source of essential nutrients that keeps the body functioning optimally.  Just one tablespoon of our flax seeds in your morning cereal provides a healthy dose of protein, fiber, and anti-inflammatory compounds.

The Highest Source of Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Our Organic Brown Flax Seeds provide a whopping dose of Omega-3’s, more than any other plant food known. In fact, our Organic Brown Flax Seeds are comprised of 20% Omega-3 fatty acids, 20 times more than that found in fish oil. Well-intentioned professionals have led us to believe that fish oil is the best source of Omega-3’s; however, our Organic Brown Flax Seeds are a healthier, plant-based alternative to fish oil and other sources of essential fatty acids (EFA’s). This brings good news to vegans, vegetarians, and anyone wishing to cut out saturated fat from their diet.

Research has shown that people who consume proper amounts of Omega-3’s are more likely to have stable energy levels, smooth skin, normal blood sugar, healthy brain and eye function, good adrenal health, and a strong immune system.

Rich in Easily Digestible Fiber – 100 Times More Than Wheat Bran

Our Organic Brown Flax Seeds are an incredible source of protein, fiber, and phytosterols, with each serving containing 100 times more fiber than an equivalent serving of wheat bran, the next highest plant-based source. Because our Organic Brown Flax Seeds are raw, they has a high enzyme content, which helps the body to properly digest food. Flax seeds are rich in amino acids and contain special fibers called lignans that assist the body in developing a strong immune system. These lignans have antiviral and anti-fungal properties, acting as a defense for foreign invaders that can enter and weaken the body’s systems.

A Long History as a Revered Food Source

Ranging in color from light to dark brown, and about the size of a sesame seed, the tiny flax seed is harvested from a delicate annual plant that produces beautiful blue flowers. The flax seed has a history of use since the Stone Age, when the people of Mesopotamia cultivated it not only as a food source but to weave its fiber into cloth. The first culinary use of the flax seed is credited to the Greeks, who revered it for its many nutritional properties.

Storage Instructions

If cared for properly, our Organic Organic Brown Flax Seeds have a shelf life of up to one year. To preserve the freshness of this product:

  • Avoid exposure to heat. The powder will remain fresh if stored at room temperature or below.
  • Avoid exposure to direct sunlight.
  • Squeeze all of the air out of the bag before sealing.
  • Seal the bag tightly after each use.
  • Store the powder in a dry place, and avoid all contact with moisture.

Packaging

We package all of our superfood powders in all-natural brown kraft bags, each with a resealable zipper across the top. Each bag has a thin metal lining, which serves as a very effective barrier to light, oxygen, odors, flavors, moisture, and bacteria.

While printed plastic bags with clear windows may look beautiful, studies have shown that the toxins contained in the plastic are absorbed by food that is in direct contact with the plastic. Foods that are raw and all-natural, like superfood powders, are even more susceptible to this type of contamination than processed foods.
