*Flax seeds are one of nature’s best health foods. They are one of the richest sources of omega-3. They also are rich in soluble fiber and contain high quality protein. Vitamins B-1, B-2, C and E, and minerals iron and zinc, plus smaller amounts of potassium, calcium, phosphorus, and magnesium are found in flax seeds.

(Look for future blogs about the power of Flax)!
