Can I drink Flax seed?

Can I drink Flax seed in water? I am in a hurry many days and I usually eat flaxseed in yogurt, but it takes too much time. I would like to mix ground flaxseed in water -would that work?

I love your flax seed -it is so different from other flaxseed I have had in the past. -Thanks, JonCan I drink Flax seed, drink flax seed in water, ground flaxseed in water

I am so glad you are enjoying the flaxseed Jon. As part of a healthy balanced diet, it will keep you healthy and your body will thank you! You asked,

Can I drink flax seed?

-Absolutely! You can drink ground flaxseed in water, juice, smoothies, protein shakes -or any way that tastes good to you! When I am in a hurry, I also find that is the quickest way to get my daily flax -drink it in water.

Ground Flaxseed in Water

If you do put ground flaxseed in water, you will notice that it sinks to the bottom of the cup and you will have to mix it up while you drink it or use a spoon to drink/eat it.

The other thing you will notice about flax in water is that it thickens up the longer it sits there. So, when I drink flax in water, I usually try to drink it up fairly quickly -in ~5 minute or so, otherwise it gets really thick.

Flax thickens up in water

If your flax and water thicken up too much and you don't like it, you could add some fruit, fruit juice and even yogurt -put it in a blender and have a smoothie (check out these smoothie recipes -or add it to a protein shake... use your imagination!

Flax is a food and can be eaten any way that you choose (there is no wrong way) long as it tastes good to You!
Thank you for your question.

"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!"

"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
