Linseeds (also known as flaxseed) are the richest plant source of omega 3 fats, which are essential for a healthy brain, heart, joints and immune system.

Linseeds are also high in phytoestrogens, which are naturally occurring forms of the female hormone oestrogen. Phytoestrogens help to balance the body's levels of oestrogen, which can be particularly beneficial for women during periods of hormonal flux, such as  menopause. 

The high fibre content of linseeds make them an excellent means of maintaining healthy bowels.
