Flax Drink

Flax seeds contain high levels of Omega 3 essential fatty acids, Omega 6 fatty acids and a substantial level of Lignans. These essential fatty acids help in bolstering cellular metabolic and cellular respiratory activities, and lignans help in detoxifying the cells. One tablespoon of flax seeds, i.e. 15 grams, have a nutritional value equivalent to 45 kilograms of peanuts, or 6 kilograms of cashew nuts, or 1 kilogram of salmon fish. Adding 1 tablespoon of cold pressed flaxseed oil to flax drink, doubles its nutritional value.
