Let's talk about linseeds! What exactly are they? And, what can they do for our body?
Firstly, Linseeds and Flaxseeds are the same thing. The Latin name for Flax translates to "very useful" which is well-fitted seeing as it has a long history of use as food, medicine, and textile fibre.
Recently, linseed has become very popular as a functional food in the health food market due to its reported health benefits and disease preventative properties. It has been said to aid in preventing coronary heart disease, certain cancers and, neurological and hormonal disorders.
Linseed oil, on the other hand, has a vey good fatty-acid profile. It is low in saturated fats, moderate in mono-unsaturated fats (eg. avocados), and high in poly-unsaturated (eg. Olive oil) fats.
