Flax USA 100% Natural Flax Cold Milled Ground Golden Flax Seed, 40-Ounce Pack Image

Lots of natural bodybuilders eat flaxseed because it contains all sorts of healthy components.  The primary ones are:

  • Omega-3 essential fatty acids, these are "good" fats that have been shown to have heart-healthy effects and need to be consumed along with traditional fats
  • Lignans: have antioxidant qualities, reduce plaque buildup, reduce inflamation, improve blood sugar response. Flaxseed contains 75 to 800 times more lignans than other plant foods.
  • Fiber. Flaxseed contains both the soluble and insoluble types to help move along with all that extra food you are eating.
It has a nice nutty flavor that can easily be added to shakes and cereals.  The many benefits will help offset all the strain you are placing on your body.  Eat flax seeds!
