Daily Dose of Flaxseed

What is the proper daily dose of flaxseed recommended?

********Hi Dan,
The recommended daily dose of flaxseed for a healthy adult is 2-4 Tablespoons a day.

You can read our complete Guidelines and Recommendations for how much flaxseed per day here. There you will also be able to read our guidelines for children as well.

We always encourage you to listen to your body and slowly build up to the recommendations.

Flaxseed is an excellent and very economical way to get the nutrition your body needs.

So much of our food is baked, processed, cooked and does not have the Omega 3 in it. Also, the average American diet contains less than half the amount of fiber we should get per day.

Flax is a perfect solution to those problems! And at ~.15 cents per day! That is affordable and healthy value!

Here's to your health!

Flax is a great source of fiber
by: Anonymous

It's true, flaxseed is great for fiber. I wish more people would eat healthier and put McDonald's and other fast food places out of business. They are such a waste of our money and completely void of nutrition. We can eat healthier -Supersize Me is a great documentary. I eat flax every day. -Kris

"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
