Organic Ground Premium Flaxseed Description from Spectrum
THE BENEFITS OF FLAXSEED
Flaxseed offers the benefits of fiber, Omega-3 fatty acid Alpha-Linolenic Acid (ALA), protein and SDG lignans. Fiber promotes regularity, supports normal functioning of the digestive tract and lipids within normal levels. ALA is an Omega-3 essential fatty acid that helps support normal cardiovascular function and helps to maintain healthy hair, skin and nails. This premium flaxseed is a highly concentrated source of secoisolariciresinol diglucoside (SDG) lignans - which are phytonutrients.

NOT ALL FLAXSEEDS ARE CREATED EQUAL
Spectrum Essentials Brand Flaxseeds are premium quality organic seeds that have been carefully selected for their nutritive content. Flaxseed is a highly concentrated source of SDG lignans - the amount of SDG lignans can vary from 0.7% to 1.9% of seed weight depending on seasonal variation in growing conditions. These select seeds are meticulously cleaned using a three-part process to remove low weight, broken, and dirty seeds commonly found in bulk bins. Only Spectrum Essentials brand uses a proprietary milling process that finely slices the seed, rather than crushing it, thereby preventing the loss of valuable nutrients from oxidation. The sliced seed is immediately packaged in this light-protective pouch and then flushed with an inert gas and airtight sealed to ensure optimum nutritive benefits and product freshness.
