Fiber is found in our diets through whole grains-including Golden Flax seed, fruits, vegetables, nuts, beans + peas (legumes). Dietary fiber is part of the plant that doesn't break down during digestion; fiber is the moving force to keep the digested food, water, + waste moving through the intestines.
Flax Fiber is composed of Soluble + Insoluble Fiber, which work together in different ways to move waste through the colon while cleansing + protecting the digestive system.
The SOLUBLE + INSOLUBLE fiber in Golden Flax seed helps pull toxins + cholesterol, while healing the gut.
Benefits of Soluble Fiber:
Reduce heart disease risk
Regulate blood sugars through the fiber and Omega-3 essential fatty acids
Promote growth of friendly flora
Soothe irritable bowel
Lower total cholesterol + the BAD cholesterol- LDL, + has been shown to help reduce risk of heart disease
Help people with Diabetes control their blood sugars better
~One kind of Soluble Fiber is Flax Mucilage, which is what makes flax become gelatinous if left sitting in liquid, and is essential for helping to cleanse and heal the colon with its medicinal emollient and demulcent properties.
~Help make bowel elimination easier by reducing irritation on the gut + bulking up stools with gelatinous mucilage.
"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
