Both Golden and Brown Flaxseeds are replete with health benefits due to their densely packed nutrition content. A rich source of antioxidant vitamins and minerals, they are high in Vitamin E – an umbrella term for eight fat soluble compounds (tocopherols) – whose primary role is to scavenge free radicals in the body. Copper, Zinc and Manganese further support the antioxidant activity of these nutritional powerhouses, working together to detox and cleanse, thus protecting the cells from oxidative stress. Manganese in particular is a powerful antioxidant, a component of one of the body’s most potent antioxidant enzymes superoxide dismutase (SOD) which works alongside glutathione to neutralise reactive oxygen molecules.
Flaxseeds are also high in Vitamin K, another fat soluble vitamin that is essential to the process of blood clotting and necessary for a healthy bone structure. It serves as the “biological glue” that helps to plug Calcium and other important minerals into the bone matrix – Flaxseeds are high in Calcium too.
High in Vitamins B1, B6, B9 (Folate) and a source of Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid) – these important compounds are crucial to a healthy digestive system, central nervous system and to the health of the brain. These B vitamins are powerful antioxidants to brain cells and are often referred to as “mood vitamins” as they help the body to make feel good hormones such as serotonin, norepinephrine and dopamine.
Flaxseeds are also high in the all important miracle mineral Magnesium. Responsible for over 300 enzymatic processes in the body, it is required to give the “spark of life” to metabolic functions including the creation and transport of energy and the creation and synthesis of proteins.
Lastly but by no means least, flaxseeds are high in Iron – essential to the blood – and in Potassium which is needed to maintain normal blood pressure and to keep the central nervous system running smoothly.

Indigo Herbs Brown Flaxseeds are cultivated and harvested under strict organic conditions. There has been no use of pesticides, herbicides or fertilizers that have a man made chemical composition. When the Linum usitatissimum plants are mature for harvest the crop is cut by combine harvester and the seed mechanically separated from the plant matter. The seed then goes through a process of vibration cleaning to separate the seed from any small particles. The Flaxseed is then air dried and tested for heavy metals and microbial activity before being made ready for shipping. This whole process complies with GMP standards and is quality assured by Indigo Herbs.
