Linseed is lovely!

Linseed comes from the flax plant. I have sprouted linseed on my cereal each morning. I remember being told that it is a cleanser for the digestive system, and particularly the bowels.

Flaxseeds or linseed are rich in omega-3 essential fatty acids, magnesium, potassium and fibre. They are a good source of the B vitamins, protein and zinc. They contain no cholesterol and can be added to cereal, yogurt, salads, soups and fresh juices.

Flaxseed oil is an alternative. This has been demonstrated to help arthritis, pain, swelling and inflammation. It lowers cholesterol.You may want to put it on your shopping list this week…
