Omega 3 is an essential polyunsaturated fatty acid used by the body and may help to maintain a healthy heart and brain function. It is essential because our body cannot make Omega 3 but rather it must be obtained through our diet. It is generally accepted that oily fish are high in Omega 3, however, Flaxseed is one of nature's richest plant sources of Omega 3 with 51% of the fat being this important fatty acid. One serving (30g/1oz) of Linwoods Milled Organic Flaxseed provides 7.2g of Omega 3.
Dietary Fibre aids in digestion and helps maintain regularity and cholesterol levels that are already within normal range. It is important to include a number of high fibre foods in our everyday diet. Flaxseed provides 8.7g of Fibre per serving
