FLAX : THE SUPER FOOD by Barb Bloomfield
Flax is a nutritional powerhouse and a super- healing food. Even in orthodox medical circles it’s being studied as a “nutraceutical”: a food with many nutrients and pharmaceutical properties. Everyone could benefit by adding flaxseeds to their diet, especially those who suffer from constipation, intestinal and digestive problems, high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol levels, and cardiovascular and other degenerative diseases.
Flax contains important essential fats, omega-3s and omega-6s, which are necessary for the proper functioning of many organs and are not produced by the body. It’s also rich in lignans, which have antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal properties and may play a key role in the prevention of breast, prostate, uterine and colon cancers.
Enjoy over 80 delicious recipes for using ground flaxseeds and flax oil by best-selling vegetarian authors Barb Bloomfield (Soups On! Fabulous Beans) and Judy Brown (Natural Lunchbox, Judy Brown’s Guide to Natural Foods Cooking). Siegfried Gursche, developer of quality flax products and publisher of natural health publications, provides information on flax and nutrition and how to incorporate flax into your daily diet.
