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.

These fibrous seeds are an excellent source of protein, vitamins, and omegas. They may also help serve as a natural appetite suppressant, strengthen the immune system, and support healthy blood sugar levels.


Common Names: Flax seed, linseed

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.

From Our Reading and/or Experience:

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