My ground flax seeds! 🌿

Everyone knows that ground flaxseeds are the jam, and it’s not only because it keeps your poop on point πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜„πŸ‘ŒπŸ™ŠπŸ’© Whole flaxseeds are awesome too, but your body doesn’t digest whole seeds, so you end up pooping them out whole. (**Don’t listen to me, just look at your poop! 😎 πŸ’©**). Β Flaxseeds are full of fiber, Omega-3s and host many benefits to us humans. Β I got into Omega-3s to help me with my eczema/skin pain relief, and to keep my joints healthy with athletics that I do such as dancing and fitness. Β I have severe food allergies to all fish and shellfish, so my Omega-3 sources are always vegetarian (flax), never fish sourced (for example: salmon, herring, tuna, etc).

Omega-3 fatty acids can help your health in some of the following ways: πŸ”ΉImprove skin health, πŸ”Ήkeep your joints healthy (super important when you’re very active or athletic)/helps improve arthritis, πŸ”Ήhelps with depression and anxiety, πŸ”Ήhelps maintain brain health, anti-inflammatory, πŸ”Ήplus other benefits.

You can get Omega-3s via a proper diet or supplements. Flax/ground flax can be purchased at your local health food store or at some grocery stores.

You can add flax to a lot of foods: cereals, yogurt, smoothies, salads, meatloaf, lentil/bean loaf, baked goods, burger patties, and whatever else you want to experiment with!

Happy pooping! πŸ˜€πŸ’©πŸ€£πŸ’©βœŒοΈπŸŒΏπŸŒΏπŸŒΏ
