What is a serving size of flaxseed?
How many servings of flax a day should a child or adult take?

A serving size of flax seed will be different for adults and children.
We recommend starting with a smaller amount for both children and adults and working up to specific goals.

You can read our Guidelines and Recommendations of how much flaxseed for children and adults.

Flaxseed is a food and you can spread your goal amount over the entire days and eat it in many different ways. We encourage you and your children to find your favorite ways (try a few and find your favorites) of how to eat flax seed.

Most importantly, flax should be eaten as part of a balanced diet. It is a wonderful way to get the needed fiber, Omega 3, protein, and anti-inflammatory lignans into your and your children's diets.

Blessings on your -and your children's- health!

"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
