Yes, flaxseed has been around in health food stores for a long time – for a reason! It is packed with plant-based omega-3 fatty acids, called alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), fiber, vitamin B-1, manganese, magnesium, and phosphorus. As banal and humble as it may seem we chose it because it delivers. When we looked at how much fibre, omegas and vitamin B it became clear we had to include it. Ongoing research confirms the potent effects of flaxseed in reducing inflammation, improving omega 3:6 ratios, and supporting digestive health (particularly the good bacteria in the gut). This traditional approach of including such a simple ingredient highlights the importance of wholefoods for systemic health and improved vitality and performance.
