Flax Seed - Whole, Organic

Herbs: Flax Seed - Whole, Organic

Common Names: Flax seed, linseed
Latin Name: Linum usitatissimum
Origin: Canada

Flaxseed is the seed of the flax plant, which is believed to have originated in Egypt. It grows throughout Canada and the northwestern United States.

Flax is an excellent source of protein, fiber and many vitamins, stabilizing blood levels and strengthening the immune system. It can also serve as a natural appetite suppressant.

From Our Reading and/or Experience:

  • Flaxseed contains soluble fiber, like that found in oat bran, and is an effective laxative.

Special Considerations:

  • Flaxseed and flaxseed oil supplements seem to be well tolerated. Few side effects have been reported.
  • Flaxseed, like any supplemental fiber source, should be taken with plenty of water; otherwise, it could worsen constipation.
  • The fiber in flaxseed may lower the body’s ability to absorb medications that are taken by mouth. Flaxseed should not be taken at the same time as any conventional oral medications or other dietary supplements.
  • We use flax seed often on its own or in herbal combinations. Flax can be used to benefit anyone: men, women (including before, during or after pregnancy, and nursing), and children.
  • As is the case with most herbs, flax seed should be stored in a dark, dry, and cool place.

I truly appreciate and respect Bulk Herb Store. I have recommended Bulk Herb Store to my friends, family and church family bc I have been greatly impacted with the education and wisdom I have gained from the resources recommended by Bulk Herb Store. I have been able to care for my four little children using herbal and natural methods rather than having to take them to the doctor for every ache and pain. We are in the process of transforming our health habits from unhealthy man made materials to more of raw foods and herbs that God has made and blessed us with. So with saying all of that, I mean to say a big Thank You to Bulk Herb Store for its mission & vision that it has shared with us.
