Got Flax ~Ellie's Corner~
Happy Spring (& Happy belated St Patrick's Day!) This means Spring is really on the way, right?! Healthy Eating I am so happy to have warmer weather on the way!

Don't take it for granted! It's worth the time and energy to eat and live healthy. Every day that we have with our health and surrounded by those we love, is priceless!

Our Customer's FLAX Health Benefits
~in Their Own Words!!
Normal Cholesterol + Improved Eczema!

I purchased flax seed after meeting Ellie's Daughter. She described all the benefits that she experienced from taking it + I thought, "why not give it a try". The main reason I bought it was it could curb your appetite, who wouldn't want that! Little did I know there were other health issues I had that the flax seeds would help me overcome.

I've had high cholesterol levels for over 3 years. I was taking the flax seeds daily for ~8 months when I had my annual doctor appt. My Dr informed me that if my cholesterol levels were as high as they had been for the past 3 yrs she would strongly recommend as she had at previous visits that I start taking a prescription to lower it.

My LDL (Bad Cholesterol) had been at 181 (high, bordering on very high) + total cholesterol level had been 243 (High Risk) for the past 3 yrs. When the results came back my Cholesterol levels had dropped down to normal! 128 LDL + 205 Total!

In addition to lowering my cholesterol the flax seed has also significantly improved my eczema. Since my son was born 11 yrs ago I have had problems with eczema. It was so bad that I would itch until I bled. It would travel across my body, showing up on my legs, arms + stomach in large patches. Since I started taking flax, my eczema has cleared up to the point where I only see an occasional small bump on my arm or leg that itches slightly but goes away quickly.

I would recommend taking flax seeds to may be surprised by benefits you will receive!
