Linseeds are a good source of fibre and omega 3 fatty acids. They have anti-cancer effects and may help manage menopausal symptoms. They can prevent and relieve constipation as well as soothe digestion.

Pre-cracked organic linseeds are best and should be kept in the fridge.

One tablespoon of linseeds will keep the bowel regular and meet your body's Omega 3 fat requirements. Linseeds are high in calories and should be eaten sparingly.
