    Lin Seeds Flax, more commonly known as flax or linseed. Linseed was first originally cultivated in Egypt, then slowly moved around the world. It is now known worldwide for its health benefits. Linseeds are one of the richest plant source, of omega 3 fats, which are essential for a healthy brain, heart, joints, and immune system.   


    Linseed are versatile nutty-tasting seeds that can be crushed and cold-pressed to release flaxseed oil or eaten raw. You can add them to water and drink as your daily water intake, you can also add them to your smoothies (my personal favorite). Baking cookies, muffins, bread or other batters, no problem, add linseeds to give your baking that extra little health kick! 


    You can find whole flaxseed at the store, but you’ll probably want to chop or grind it up before eating. For most people, ground flaxseed is easier to digest than whole seeds. It also ensures the nutrients are more easily absorbed by the body.
