The health benefits of Flaxseed
Gluten-free, nutritionally dense and versatile in its applications, Waltanna Gold flaxseed is a little but rich seed of nourishing wonder – inside and outside the body – for people and animals.
Waltanna Gold flaxseed is 100% natural and chemical free
Chemical free and genetically unaltered, Waltanna Gold flaxseed was developed right here at Waltanna Farms to suit Australian conditions. The result is a supreme quality golden flaxseed that is a far more palatable and versatile flaxseed than its dark brown predecessor.
Each Waltanna Gold flax seed contains one mighty punch of nutrients and minerals
Here is a list of the key nutrients and minerals naturally packaged within each golden husk of our chemical free, Australian grown flaxseed:
- Essential fatty acids:
- Omega-3 Alpha Linolenic Acid (ALA)
- Omega-6 Linolenic
- Omega-9 Oleic
- Soluble and insoluble dietary fibre
- Fibre – soluble and insoluble
- Minerals thiamine (Vitamin B1), manganese, selenium, magnesium and phosphorous
- 70-800 times more lignans than other plant sources
Our bodies can’t make essential Omega-3 fats so they need to come from food. When cold pressed at low temperatures by Waltanna Farms, the flaxseed oil extracted contains up to 60% Omega ALA which is vital to our health.
The health benefits of flaxseed are documented in many research articles by medical practitioners, veterinarians, academics, chemists, natural health therapists and nutritionists.
