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.
Say goodbye to coarse, dense and hard-to-mix flax! Viva Naturals Organic Ground Flaxseed offers one of the finest mills available—thanks to a unique sifting system that reduces the number of whole or broken seeds. The result is a product that is super-soft and light. Our flax crops are grown in high mineral soil under full sunlight and cool winds for optimal nutritional value. We harvest only the finest, fully developed flax seeds, which are milled at cool temperatures and never heated, preserving essential omega-3’s and powerful phytonutrients. Certified organic and non-GMO, our ground flaxseed provides a hefty amount of dietary fiber and essential fatty acids in every serving, and our light-barrier packaging guarantees maximum freshness!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
