Viva Naturals Organic Ground Flaxseed
Tiny Seed. Big Benefits.
As one of the very first crops cultivated by man, flaxseed was traditionally recognized for its exceptionally strong fibers and medicinal properties worldwide. Today, it’s considered one of the most powerful plant foods on the planet. Rich in heart-loving omega-3 essential fatty acids, lignans, and both soluble and insoluble fiber, flaxseed bestows health benefits like no other—but to unlock its full potential, it should be eaten in ground or crushed form. Keep ground flaxseed on hand to transform shakes, salads, baked goods, yogurt, oatmeal and more with its delightful nutty taste and nutrient-packed punch.

Promotes Cardiovascular Health
Ground flaxseed is high in alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), which is critical for keeping your heart and arteries healthy. In fact, researchers in the Lyon Heart Study followed subjects who experienced heart complications over four years and documented that those on ALA-rich diets had a 50-70% lower risk of a recurrence.
Healthy Weight Management
The soluble fiber in flaxseed slows digestion, helps suppress appetite and balance blood sugar levels, all of which aid in achieving and maintaining a healthy weight. A study published in the British Journal of Nutrition in April 2015 reported that insulin sensitivity improved in overweight postmenopausal women when they consumed flaxseed.
Healthy Inflammatory Response
The ALA and lignans in flaxseeds have been shown to support the body’s cellular response to inflammatory factors. Just two tablespoons of ground flaxseed contain more than 140% of your recommended intake of omega-3 fatty acids, which researchers have shown to relieve joint stiffness.
Supports Digestive Health
High in ALA and both soluble and insoluble fiber, and one of the highest sources of magnesium anywhere, flaxseed is a regular(ity) rockstar. These nutrients protect the digestive tract, maintain GI health and keep things moving. So don’t just trust your gut. Take care of it.
Smoothies and Juices
Adding ground flaxseed adds a sweet and nutty flavor—and some serious health-conscious cred—to any smoothie or juice. It also adds necessary fiber. Plus, for those actively watching their weight, adding just a little fiber-rich ground flaxseed makes it even more filling and substantial—which helps you feel full sooner and longer.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is the shelf-life of ground flaxseed?
A: Due to our proprietary cold-milling method, our flaxseed is shelf-stable for up to two years. We recommend storing flaxseed in your refrigerator or freezer to extend freshness.
Q: Is ground flaxseed healthier than whole flax seeds?
A: Yes, absolutely. Milling flax exposes valuable nutrients and lignans that are trapped within the whole seed. When whole seeds are consumed, they are immediately eliminated without providing any nutritional benefit.
Q: If I use flax oil, should I be eating flaxseed too?
A: Flax oil and ground flaxseed offer their own unique benefits. Flax oil is rich in essential fatty acids (EFAs), whereas ground flax offers a source of vitamins, minerals, fiber and EFAs. Consuming too much flax may have an impact on hormones, therefore we recommend consulting with your healthcare provider before combining both products.

I'm currently taking 2 tablespoons of it per day to reduce my estrogen and therefore hopefully cut down on my chances of breast cancer, which my mom died of, so it was extremely important to find a brand that didn't have a strong taste and wasn't hard to chew.
I've been very impressed with this. The taste and texture is so mild that I put it on my 9-grain toast in the morning, but I've also put it over popcorn, pasta, chips, and even mixed it into steamed veggies with butter. (I recommend putting it in a pizza cheese shaker to make it easier to disperse evenly). I will definitely be purchasing this again.
Look at me, I'm being healthy! Puttin flaxseed on my oatmeal, in my smoothies, and other secret places!
How do i review flaxseed? I assume its good for me because everything i have read says so. Heck, Dr Oz recommends it so it must be so.
All i can really say is that I have been using it for months and feel pretty darn good and there have been no side effects that i can tell.
I order a good deal of products from VIVA. They are reliable and their goods come in well built resealable packaging which for this kinda thing i think is important. Their prices appear to be pretty reasonable or at least you can find their goods marked down often.
