What is Flax and what does it do?

Flax may be new to the generation born after the Second World War, but its known history is very old and its use is probably much older.

Flax was traditionally grown both for its fibre, which was woven into linen cloth, and for its seeds, which provided Omega 3-rich oils as well as other nutrients, and mucilage fibre for normalising gastro-intestinal function.

References to the healing properties of flax are found in Greek and Roman writings dating around 650BC. Hippocrates, in the 5th Century BC, mentioned the use of flax to relieve inflamed mucous membranes and for relieving abdominal pains and diarrhoea.

The Plant
The Latin name for flax is Linum usitatissimum. The seeds come in gold and brown varieties and can be large or small. Some people prefer golden flax, while others find brown flax more useful, but all varieties are nutritious.

Nutrients Contained in Flax
Although their contents vary slightly from year to year and depending on the growing regions, a 100g sample of seed will give about 35g of oil, 26g of protein, 14g of fibre, 12g of mucilage, 4g of minerals and 9g of water.

Whole Flax Nutrition
Flax seeds (otherwise known as linseeds) can be taken whole or freshly ground. Taken whole they provide bulk for a colon cleanse, but if they are ground, the body can digest them and make use of the oils and protein contained within them. The seeds are high in lignans and phospholipids.

Freshly-ground flax should be taken with plenty of fluid because its mucilage absorbs 5 times the seeds’ weight of water. The use of freshly-ground flax seeds can improve digestion, prevent and reverse constipation, stabilise blood sugar levels and bring about many other beneficial effects.

As part of a colon cleanse programme, linseeds are most effective if kept whole and soaked for 8 hours. After soaking, drink the seeds along with the water to obtain the benefits of the mucilage which forms.

The fresh oil of the flax seed is the richest omega 3 edible oil we know, containing on average 55% linolenic acid. It has a rich, deep golden colour with a gentle, pleasant aroma and a nutty taste. If it tastes too heavy, the freshness must be questioned.
