Flaxseeds are most commonly known for their high Omega-3 content. The many ways of consuming flaxseeds provide our bodies with different sources of nutrients. In addition to Omega-3s, ground flaxseeds are considered a great source of protein, fibres and a phytochemical known as lignans.
Alligga ground flaxseeds can be sprinkled on cereals, mixed in with smoothies, and used as an egg or fat substitution for special diets. Consuming 8g of ground flaxseeds daily provides us with enough ALA, an essential Omega-3 fatty acid, to meet our dietary needs. One tablespoon of ground flaxseed contains 2 grams of polyunsaturated fatty acids, which include the Omega-3s, and 2 grams of dietary fibre.
Many people incorporate ground flaxseeds into their everyday food consumption to improve digestive health. Health benefits include lowering the risk of heart disease, prevention of some forms of cancer, treatment of immune disorders, and the lowering of blood glucose levels and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) bad cholesterol.
Alligga is a proud All-Canadian brand committed to providing natural health products for a complete and balanced lifestyle. Our 100% natural products can be traced to the raw, Non-GMO flaxseeds, harvested from our rich and fertile Canadian Prairies.
