Flax Seed Meal, also commonly known as linseed, is ancient crop with documented use that dates to ancient Egypt. The herb was once widely used to spin linen and other textiles, including rope, lamp wick and sails. Flaxseeds contain more lignans, a type of antioxidant found in some types of fiber, than any other type of food. Flaxseeds contain about 7 times the amount of lignans as sesame seeds, 338 times the amount as sunflower seeds, 475 times the amount as cashews, and 3200 times the amount as peanuts. 1 Lignans help decrease inflammation associated with cardiovascular disease, insulin resistance, and some types of cancer, with research focusing primarily on breast, prostate and colon cancer.*
