I love flaxseed..it's one of the best supplements I use..
The benefits of Flax: Omega-3...omega-3'3 are an important part of a healthy diet. Flax is one of nature's richest plant source of Omega-3 fatty acids. The oils in flaxseed are over 50% alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). One serving of milled flax gives 280mg of Omega-3.
it's also a great source of fiber, one serving gives 4 grams of fiber.
here is the recipe how to substitute Flax for eggs, butter 5 oil in recipes.
1TBSP of flax + 3 TBSP of water = 1 egg
3 TBSP of Flax = 1 TBSP of oil or butter
