    Some call it one of the most powerful plant foods on the planet. There’s some evidence it may help reduce your risk of heart disease, cancer, stroke, and diabetes.


    Although flaxseed contains all sorts of healthy components, it owes its primary healthy reputation to three of them:



    • Omega-3 essential fatty acids, "good" fats that have been shown to have heart-healthy effects. Each tablespoon of ground flaxseed contains about 1.8 grams of plant omega-3s.Omega-3 essential fatty acids

    • Lignans, which have both plant estrogen and antioxidant qualities. Flaxseed contains 75 to 800 times more lignans than other plant foods.

    • Fiber. Flaxseed contains both the soluble and insoluble types.
