What We Think
Virginia Harvest Cold Milled Flaxseed is the latest addition to the Virginia Harvest range.
The nutrients in whole flaxseed are not easy to absorb due to the seed's tough coat. So Virginia mill the seed gently to make those wonderful nutrients inside more accessible.
Virginia Harvest Flaxseed provides large amounts of Fibre, Omega 3 fatty acids and plant lignans. The Oil is rich in alpha linolenic acid (ALA) an Omega 3 fatty acid and a precursor to EPA found in oily fish. In addition to having several health benefits of its own, it can be converted in the body to EPA, thus providing EPA's beneficial effects.
12% of Flax seed is mucilage which is excellent for sensitive stomachs, soothing inflammation. It reduces absorption of cholesterol from foods and nourishes friendly bacteria. It slows the release of sugars and is useful in the management of type 2 diabetes. The insoluble fibre in Flax helps avoid constipation and must be taken with plenty of water. Flax is one of natures richest sources of plant lignans, which are antioxidants and phytoestrogens. They are converted by the bowel bacteria to mammalian lignans which may have a protective effect in hormone sensitive conditions.
