Good to Know Info
All nuts and seeds are rich in healthy monounsaturated fats that assist in stabilizing blood sugar levels.
Chia Seeds, Ground FlaxSeeds and Walnuts are especially high in essential omega-3 fatty acids, which lower inflammation throughout the body. This is particularly beneficial for people with arthritis and other inflammatory diseases.
Flaxseeds must be ground to enable your body to absorb all their beneficial nutrients, because the whole seeds pass through the intestines undigested.
Chia seeds do not have to be ground and have a longer shelf life because they can be left whole.
