Personal Wellness Benefits
- Promotes heart health
Flaxseed meal is a rich, plant-based source of the omega-3 fatty acid ALA. Plant-based ALA fatty acids are proven to have heart health benefits and are linked to a lower risk of stroke.
Ground flaxseed is also a good source of plant-based protein and can be an alternative protein source for people who do not eat meat.
- Reduces cancer risk
Flaxseed meal contains a group of nutrients called lignans, which have powerful antioxidant and estrogen properties. They may help in preventing breast and prostate cancer, as well as other types of cancer.
- Improves digestive health
With so much fiber packed in each tiny seed, adding flaxseed meal to your diet promotes regular bowel movements and can improve your digestive health.

- Is Ground Flaxseed the Same as Flaxseed Meal?
The major difference between flaxseeds and flaxseed meal is in terms of digestion of the contained nutrients. Flaxseed meal is healthier as it makes easier for the body to digest.
