Flax seed and CHOLESTEROL: Studies show substantial reductions in cholesterol levels simply by adding raw ground Flaxseed to the diet. Flax seed has helped many of my customers decrease cholesterol levels as well as decreasing their blood pressure. Some of my customers have told me they have been able to work with their Doctors to reduce or get off blood pressure medications!!CONSTIPATION Relief: Both the Omega 3 and the fiber in flax help cleanse the colon! Did you know that if we are not having a Bowel Movement every day (or every other day), that our body is REABSORBING Cholesterol!!And our bodies just cannot get rid of the toxins it is trying so hard to move out!BLOOD SUGAR: Flax seed is a Low Glycemic food and has a glycemic index of 32. The glycemic index rates how quickly the body breaks down the food and how it affects blood sugars.
Low glycemic foods will help the body avoid producing too much insulin. Too much insulin production causes us to store fat and increases our risk for diabetes, weight gain, high triglycerides, heart disease, cancer, and other health problems.
INFLAMMATORY AILMENTS: Lignans are found in the hull of the seed and many of my customers have experienced relief from inflammatory problems such as arthritis, joint pain, back pain as well as asthma, allergies, arthritis, and sinusitis.FEMALE HORMONES Flax seed is an excellent plant source of estrogen. ISOFLAVONES + LIGNANS found in flax seed may be a great alternative or supplement to Hormone Replacement Therapy in consultation with your physician. Isoflavones help relieve hot flashes, + night sweats, while also promoting vaginal moisture, all without the sometimes negative side effects of HRT. I have many women who have told me that after they began to take LIGNANS that their hot flashes completely disappeared! Read some of their stories here!BREAST CANCER + PROSTATE CANCER PREVENTION: More and more studies are showing that Lignans protect against these 2 types of cancer. More research here.BRAIN FOOD: The OMEGA 3 found in flax seed provides the brain with essential fatty acids. Omega 3 may be very beneficial for brain development in children, prevention of memory loss, and may contribute to the treatment of depression and mood disorders, such as ADD and ADHD.HEALTHY SKIN: The Omega 3 in Flaxseed may contribute to improved skin conditions such as Psoriasis, Eczema, Acne, and dry skin.WEIGHT LOSS or maintaining weight: The Omega 3 are the good fats that tell your brain you are full, while the fiber in flaxseed helps the body work hard to break down the food, thus enabling your body to get more 'bang for the buck' and feel satiated longer!EVERY DAY IS A GREAT DAY WITH FLAX!!
"Even at the full price the Cold Milled Flax is still cheaper than Metamucil or other fiber supplements that run about $12 for only 15 ounces! That's a great deal!" -K.A.
"Ellie, Thanks for your email. Just a short testament: Have been trying for years to get my cholesterol numbers to be on the healthy side. Got your flax at the farmers market this past summer and took your advice on consuming it. Had a blood test 2 weeks ago and my Cholesterol number is at 181, down from 262. Healthy eating and exercise: definitely the way to go. Thanks again."

"I have several health problems: Type 2 Diabetes + Constipation being my top complaints. When I was introduced to Golden Flax seed, I was drinking fiber daily + lived on Senna. I no longer have to buy Senna or fiber."
"My hot flashes were so bad and I had up to 3 or 4 times in the night. My sleep was interrupted, not to mention the embarrassment of breaking out in a sweat and a red face during conversations.... Oh boy, I have not had a hot flash for about 3 weeks."
"The best thing that happened is that it has really helped stabilize my blood sugar. When blood sugar is stable without a lot of peaks + valleys, it's easier to lose weight + I'm game for that."
-- Thanks, Sherrie
