Flaxseeds are part of the human diet. They are also used for animal feed and in the cosmetic industry (facial and hair masks, among others).
These seeds have an excellent supply of omega-3 fatty acids and contain magnesium, which gives them an anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving effect.
Flaxseed is rich in fiber, protein, nutrients, and minerals. Several studies conducted in recent years suggest that the properties of flaxseeds may have several positive effects on cardiovascular health.
The consumption of flaxseeds is not recommended for children under 6 years of age, adults with a fragile thyroid, those suffering from intestinal diseases (diverticulosis), pregnant women, and those who have had breast or ovarian tumors.
