Ground Flaxseed
Nature will always produce something that is beneficial for our bodies if taken in itís most natural form. The same is for flaxseed oil and the seeds from which the oil is derived. Taken in combination will produce more health benefits than if one would take the oil or the ground seeds on itís own.

Flaxseeds are also known as Linum usitatissimum which means ďmost usefulĒ
And it is really a most useful little seed in nutritional value and versilality
In Rome the health benefits were widely praised
In the 17th century flax was first introduced and planted in Canada, the country that is the main producer of this highly beneficial seed

Ground Flaxseed and their oil is the best source of essential fatty acids( essential means we must consume it, because the body cannot manufacture it) and alpha-linolenic acid which is known as omega 3 fatty acid. In addition, ground flaxseeds are a rich source of lignans, substances that appear to positively affect hormone-related problems. Lignans may also be useful in preventing certain cancers and combating specific harmful bacteria, fungi (like Candida Albicans), and viruses, including those that cause cold sores and shingles. Essential fatty acids are important for cell membranes, blood pressure regulation, and other functions.

Several studies indicate that flaxseed oil, as well as ground flaxseeds, can lower cholesterol, thereby significantly reducing the risk of heart disease.
In addition, the oil may prevent painful gallstones from developing and even dissolve existing stones

Flaxseed oil also available in a pill.
