FLAX seeds!


Flax or linseed is a food and fiber crop cultivated in cooler regions of the world. The textiles made from flax are known in the Western countries as linen, and traditionally used for bed sheets, underclothes, and table linen. Flax seeds occur in two basic varieties: brown and yellow or golden.

One study of research published between 1990 and 2008 showed that consuming flax seed or its derivatives may reduce total and LDL-cholesterol in the blood, with greater benefits in women and those with high cholesterol.
