Flaxseed offers the benefits of fiber, omega-3 fatty acid alpha-linolenic add (ALA), protein and SDG lignans.* Fiber promotes regularity, supports normal functioning of the digestive tract and healthy lipids.* ALA is an omega-3 essential fatty acid that helps support normal cardiovascular function and helps to maintain healthy hair, skin and nails.* This premium flaxseed is a highly concentrated source of secoisolariciresinol diglucoside (SDG) lignans - which are phytonutrients. Not all flaxseeds are created equal. Spectrum Essentials® brand flaxseeds are premium quality organic seeds that have been carefully selected for their nutritive content. Flaxseed is a highly concentrated source of SDG lignans - the amount of SDG lignans can vary from 0.7% to 1.9% of seed weight depending on seasonal variation in growing conditions. These select seeds are meticulously cleaned using a three-part process to remove low weight, broken, and dirty seeds commonly found in bulk bins. Only Spectrum® brand uses a proprietary milling process that finely slices the seed, rather than crushing it, thereby preventing the loss of valuable nutrients from oxidation. The sliced seed is immediately packaged in this light-protective pouch and then flushed with an inert gas and airtight sealed to ensure optimum nutritive benefits and product freshness. No preservatives. Certified organic by QAI. Seed product of Canada or USA. Packaged in the USA. 800.343.7833. www.spectrumorganics.com. ©2013 The Hain Celestial Group, Inc.
