Flaxseed is a nutty-flavored seed variety that, in addition to supplying heart-healthy fats, provides rich amounts of fiber. According to a report published in “Current Topics in Nutraceutical Research” in 2005, ground flaxseed contains soluble fiber and insoluble fiber, which binds water in your digestive tract and enhances stool bulk, and, when consumed regularly, may increase your daily fiber intake to levels necessary to alleviate constipation.

This is an important attribute, according to the study, as most Americans consume 20 grams of the recommended 20 to 35 grams of fiber daily. Consume ground flaxseed rather than whole seed for maximum absorption. You may also grind whole seed in your coffee grinder.

Ground flaxseed provides a simple fiber-enhancing ingredient for baked goods, cereals, yogurt and smoothies.

Flaxseed is particularly valuable if your constipation is related to celiac disease and you cannot tolerate wheat or gluten-containing.

  1. I was unable to access any of the links in this article due to a pop up ad about jewelry that reappeared every time I attempted to click on the link. I closed the link at least 6 times before realizing your site is more interested in selling jewelry than providing health information. I will not visit your jewelry site again. Deceptive, disappointing, and unethical. Shame on you.

  2. your website is complete garbage. You are a loser, and cannot even be successful with a product that might actually be useful to your users. This is called small time business with focus on making some money now. You better save it because long term this site has no chance.
