Did you know?
The word “usitatissimum” in Latin means “of greatest use”.
Used for both textiles and food, there is evidence of Flax fibre from over 3000 years ago. Revered by the ancient Egyptians who painted images of the flowering plant on temple walls and considered Flax to be a symbol of purity, priests would only wear linen and the deceased (mummies) were entombed in the material. The ancient Romans would use the fibre for their sails and as the civilization declined so did the production of flax. The plant regained popularity in the 8th century as a hygienic textile and for the health benefits of flax (linseed) oil. Flax seed is one of the richest sources of Lignans, an anti-oxidant that is both anti-bacterial and anti-viral, it maintains hormone balance and cellular health. Flax may also be beneficial for menopausal women and assists with regulating menstruation.
The body cannot absorb the nutrients from the seeds when whole,  so they should be ground into a flour, sprouted or taken in an oil form to ensure that nutrients are absorbed by the body.
It is also important to note that when baking with flax seed powder, the temperature should not exceed 150c so that the ALA remains stable.

Golden Flax Seeds are:

  • Rich in Omega 3: Flax Seeds are rich source of Omega 3 (ALA), which prevents heart disease, lowers blood pressure and cholesterol, improves memory function and promotes healthy skin and hair further to reducing inflammation and protecting against diseases and assisting with depression or mental illness.
  • Good for digestion: The high levels of mucilage gum in flax seeds can also increase the bodies nutrient intake, by slowing the movement of food from the stomach into the small intestine. Flax seeds are a good source of fibre which helps to reduce inflammation and lower cholesterol as well as promote digestive health by maintaining healthy gut bacteria. It also assists with detoxification, fat loss and sugar cravings.
