Flax is one of the oldest cultivated plants. Avicenna and Dioscorides also mentioned flax healing properties. And in later times in the East and in Kievan Rus flax seeds were used in folk medicine due to their softening, purifying and bactericidal properties. Since ancient times, flax in Russia was one of the most popular plants. The composition of flaxseed is rich in proteins, fats, gluten and fiber. Proteins are rich in essential amino acids: albumin and globulin. Globulins with a high molecular weight predominate (58-66%). The share of albumins accounts for 20-42%.
Polyunsaturated fatty acids
Flax seed contains three types of valuable polyunsaturated fatty acids: omega-3, omega-6 and omega-9, the correct balance of which is necessary for the normal functioning of all processes of vital activity of the human body.
Flax seed is rich in fats (41%), so it is very valuable. The uniqueness of flax oil lies in the very high content of polyunsaturated alpha-Linolenic acid (ALA).
The flax seeds contain special substances lignans (“plant hormones”), which are antioxidants, have antibacterial and antiviral properties. In the flax seeds the content of lignans is 100 times more than in other plant products.

The flax seeds contain vitamins F, A, E, B.
