Flax seeds contain high levels of dietary fiber, protein and a powerful antioxidant called lignans. Flax seeds are the number one source of lignans in the human diet. Lignans are phytonutrients that have both soluble and insoluble fiber.
Flax is one of the richest sources of plant-based omega-3 fatty acids, called alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), in the world.
Protein: up to 30%.
Flax seeds help improve digestion and cardiovascular disease, promote clearer skin, lower cholesterol, combat sugar cravings, reduce levels of the stress hormone cortisol, balance hormones, aid in weight loss, treat constipation, promote better breast health and fight hormone-associated cancers, such as: breast, uterine, ovarian and prostate, by blocking the effects of estrogen.
Flax seed lignans may also be a good treatment for canine Cushing’s disease.
Soak seeds for 4 hours.
Drain, rinse and drain, and in one day, the seeds will reach maturity.
Plant seeds on a thoroughly moistened medium.
Cover your crop with another tray or a plate to keep light out and moisture in.
Keep your medium moist by watering lightly as needed, don't drench.
When your plants have begun to show leaves, remove cover and move your crop to a well-lit location.
Harvest when the leaves are open and are one to three inches tall, sometime between five to fourteen days.
Cut just above the medium with a scissors or sharp knife.
