Flaxseeds are easily available, very cheap, and fully packed with very important nutrients. The only problem these days people think if it is expensive then it is better, but I do not agree with you. If some goods have less production then it becomes costly but if most people are growing it then it means more production and you can buy it cheaply. One tablespoon of flaxseeds will provide you around 37 calories, 1.3g protein, 2.5g good fats, 1.9g fiber and they are rich in omega-3 fatty acids and studies tell us, they are rich in lignans, which may reduce cancer risk. They also may help to improve your good cholesterol level and decrease the bad cholesterol level.
