Flax Fibre is a balanced protein, fibre rich ingredient with low G.I. and provides a great balance of soluble and insoluble fibre, useful for removing toxins from the body. Flax also contains Omega-3 essential fatty acids for building healthy cells in the whole body. Flax Fibre contains 33% protein, making it a, nutritious component of a healthy diet.

5 great reasons to eat flax fibre:
Health and Well-Being: Flax is a unique food, providing valuable Omega 3, 6 and 9 oils essential for cell regulation.

Blood Sugar Balance: The levels of soluble and insoluble fibre help ensure glucose is released steadily into the bloodstream (particularly important in cases of hypoglycaemia, metabolic syndrome and diabetes). As a food with a low glycaemic load (GL), Flax Fibre helps the body avoid triggering excessive insulin release and a subsequent “sugar low”.

Heart Health: A good intake of Flax Fibre may improve blood cholesterol levels. The fibre appears to trap fat and glucose, enabling it to be swept out of the body, and may provide some protection against high blood pressure and angina. Essential fatty acids help thin the blood and build flexible, permeable cell walls, an important factor in maintaining healthy arteries.

Hormone Balance: Flax is the richest known source of lignans, plant compounds which have mild oestrogenic properties. This gentle action can lead to better hormonal balance and also help alleviate symptoms of PMS and menopause.

Detox: Many nutritionists maintain up to 80 per cent of disease conditions start in the colon. Our Flax Fibre is assists in sweeping wastes from the body, keeping the colon happy and healthy. It also improves liver function and helps to reverse both diarrhoea and constipation.
