According to many well-respected functional medicine and other physicians, nutritionists and wellness experts, seeds (such as flax, chia, sesame and sunflower) are an important part of a healthy diet and approximately one to two tablespoons should be eaten every day.

Nutritionally dense and rich in essential oils, antioxidants and important vitamins and minerals, seeds provide an array of protective health benefits, including lowering the risk for heart disease, cancer, stroke and diabetes.

Flax and other seeds are also linked to natural weight loss due to their high dietary fiber content, detoxification effect and potential to make one feel full and satisfied - thereby preventing overeating.

Flax seeds are an excellent source of healthy, plant-based protein and essential fatty acids and, hence, are an exceptionally good choice for individuals following a plant-based diet, including vegetarians and vegans.
