  • You might want to start including more flax seeds in your diet, because we are missing

  • those great Omega 3 fatty acids from our diets, and flax seeds are a great source. Now we

  • need those Omega-3 fatty acids because they provide incredible protection for our brain

  • cells, they also are anti-inflammatory. We need a proper ratio of Omega-3s, Omega-6s,

  • and Omega-9s in our diets, and we need more Omega-3s.

  • Flax seeds are a great way to get it, they're very inexpensive and they're easy to use. Flax

  • seeds also provide a lot of fiber, which we are also missing from our diet. Most people

  • only get half the daily fiber that they should be getting to help clean out our intestines,

  • and keep our digestive system healthy and running smoothly.

  • Now, there are three main mistakes that people make when consuming flax seeds. The first

  • is that they need to be ground. You don't get the access to your Omega-3 oils in the

  • flax seeds unless they are ground up. So either pulse them in a blender or use a little spice

  • grinder or even a coffee mill to grind up the flax seeds before you put them in a recipe

  • or sprinkle them on top of your food.

  • The other mistake people make is by not keeping their flax seed in the refrigerator. They

  • need to stay cool, and they need to be protected from light. So keep them in a dark bottle

  • in the refrigerator to protect those very delicate Omega-3 oils. The other mistake is

  • that we shouldn't heat our Omega-3 rich oils like flax because they are very delicate and

  • heat destroys the benefits.
