So, what is flax seed?

Flax seeds are small, golden-brown or brown-colored seeds that come from the flax plant, which is cultivated for both its fiber and its seeds. These tiny seeds pack a big nutritional punch, being an excellent source of fiber, protein, omega-3 fatty acids, lignans, and other important vitamins and minerals. They have a subtle, nutty flavor and a slightly crunchy texture, making them a versatile addition to a wide range of dishes, from baked goods to smoothies and salads. Flax seeds have been used for centuries in traditional medicine for their various health benefits, including aiding in digestion, reducing inflammation, and lowering cholesterol levels.
