Flax seed is one of the oldest ancient herbs and is one of the oldest continuously cultivated plants in history. It has been an excellent source of food, fiber and oil. It has commercial use for allergies and dry skin. Dogs accept flax seed oil readily, while cats seem to prefer crushed flax seeds or powder. Flaxseeds have been used for a number of inflammatory conditions ranging from allergies, colitis, autoimmune diseases, kidney disease, and cancers. There is no magic ingredients to good health but there are a number of ingredients that play an important part to good health. Essential fatty acids from a number of sources, especially flaxseeds create a magic environment for improved health. Other good sources of essential fatty acids include wild salmon, sardines, trout, halibut, deer,elk, milk and raw eggs. We use flax in our diets and feel that this is a key ingredient in supplying the essential fatty acid nutrients.
