Authen-tip: Feeling Good with Flaxseeds

Flaxseeds have gained incredible popularity lately and for good reason! These little seeds are full of omega-3 fatty acids which help prevent inflammation and keep our skin soft and smooth. They are also loaded with antioxidants that help boost our immune system and have healing properties to promote a healthy heart. Soaking flaxseeds helps them bulk up with theraputic fibers and allows you to digest them easier. Try supplementing with flaxseed oil (or add it to your smoothies). You can even sprinkle the ground seeds on salads, cereal and yogurt.
