Flaxseed is a rich source of protein, healthy fat, antioxidants, and fiber. The seeds contain lignans, very high levels of the essential fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid, as well as an array of minerals, including folate, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, and potassium. The seed also contains vitamin B1 and B6. Flaxseed is one of the richest plant sources of the omega-3 fatty acid i.e. α-linolenic acid. Omega-3 fatty acids in the diet are important because they can lower the risk of heart attacks and combat coronary artery disease. Flex seed is also a great source of fiber.
