Among its many health benefits (high in alpha-linolenic acid omega 3 fatty acid and fiber), flax is one of the best plant sources of lignans: natural antioxidants that may reduce the activity of cell-damaging free radicals, slow the aging process, and increase overall wellness. Flaxseeds provide up to 700 times more lignans than whole grains or legumes.
