One serving of flaxseed provides a good amount of protein, fiber, and omega 3 fatty acids along with several important vitamins and minerals.
The fibre content in flaxseed, which is both soluble and insoluble, can help with constipation and regular bowel movements.
Flaxseeds are a skin-friendly food, regardless of whether you eat them or apply them topically.
Flaxseed’s fibre content may help lower cholesterol. This is due to the fact the fibre is mainly water-soluble.
