Flax seeds derive from the flax plant and can often be found in seed, oil or powder form.
These seeds are one of the most concentrated sources of omega-3 fats as well as having a high fibre content.
The high fibre content is good for the heart; the fact that they are a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids means they can help lower blood cholesterol and blood pressure.
These seeds can easily be incorporated into your diet; either spinkled on to salad or cereal, added to a trail mix or just added to a smoothie!
