Expert Tips

Flaxseed is rich in alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). ALA is an omega 3-fatty acids--the kind that may help reduce bad LDL cholesterol and lower blood pressure.

The best way to receive the most benefits from flax is to grind the seed with a coffee grinder. Once the flax has been ground, it should be kept in the refrigerator or frozen.
