good idea bad idea: broken flaxseeds

Good idea: Take with food flaxseed to you, because they have the highest concentrations of omega-3 fatty acid of all known vegetable oils.
Other important ingredients are mucilage, linamarin, protein, lecithin; further sterols plastochromanol, vitamins B1, B2, B6 and E and nicotinic, folic and pantothenic acid.

Bad idea: I’ve done. If you take the flaxseed with medicine. The flaxseeds will degrees the effect of the medication, because of the laxative effect, based on the fact that the shell of linseed contains mucilage that swell due to water absorption.

With my experience I have waited 3 hours before i eat the seeds.

Warning notes: There is evidence that eating flaxseed could increase the risk of premature birth by pregnant women.
