Flax Butter: Feel it. Love it.

Stoneground to Perfection

Flax Seeds are an ancient superfood known for their concentration of heart-helping antioxidants, Omega-3 fatty acids, and as an excellent source of plant based protein.
This functional food is also one of the world's best sources of dietary lignans, which block enzymes that can contribute to hormone imbalances and common cancers.
As if that weren't enough, milled flax seed is also a delicious, gluten and nut free option for those who want to add fiber, protein, potassium, calcium, magnesium, zinc, and phosphorus to their diets.
Ground flax seed is substantially more nutritious than a whole seed or oil product. By milling flax seeds into O3 Flax Butter we have maximized this superfoods capacity to be absorbed and digested.
Now you too can enjoy all of the incredible benefits of making flax butter part of your daily routine.

Omega -3 Fatty Acids

Studies have show that Omega 3 ALAs from flax seeds prevent cholesterol from being deposited in the blood vessels of the heart, reduce inflammation and reduce tumor growth.

"These shiny, reddish or golden-brown seeds are the richest natural source of alpha linolenic acid (ALA), an omega-3 fatty acid."

- Harvard School of Public Health

Reducing Arthritis Causing Inflammation

The Arthritis Foundation suggests that consuming foods rich in Omega-3 fatty acids can reduce the inflammation and joint stiffness associated with Rheumatoid Arthritis. Flax butter has a concentration of the Omega-3's ALA, Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), so it can lessen the inflammation and pain associated with rheumatological symptoms.

Improving Blood Sugar

  • Lignans and other phytoestrogens may help alleviate chronic conditions such as diabetes. Several studies has shown a linkage between flax seed consumption reduced incidents of type 1 diabetes as well as delayed onset of type 2 diabetes. The reason for this is that antioxidants are believed to improve insulin sensitivity.

Lower Inflammation & Cholestoral

  • "Flaxseed is one of the richest plant-based sources of the anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acid ALA. Studies show it may help lower overall and LDL cholesterol and reduce the complications of diabetes and heart disease risk. Crushing or milling flaxseed makes it easier for your body to digest and use the ALA."

Cancer Fighting Lignans

Flax seeds are a great source of cancer fighting lignans. Lignans are antioxidant compounds found in plants that have various positive health impacts including reducing your risk of cancer. Flax seeds contain 800 times more lignans than other plant sources. (US National Library of Medicine) 

Flax Seeds Are Rich in Plant Protein

Whether you're considering reducing meat consumption for yourself or your family, or looking for a quick and easy plant based protein source that can hold its own against, or even outperform protein from meat, flax is a great alternative. Flax seed protein is rich in essential amino acids arginine, aspartic acid and glutamic acid, both of which are important for heart and immune system health. (Food Chemistry) Flax seeds are also a good source of phosphorus, magnesium and calcium.  


Flax Butter is an Excellent Source of Fiber

If you're looking for a healthy and positive way to control your appetite you may have just found it. The high soluble fiber content made fully available for digestion by stone milling flax seeds, slows digestion and triggers appetite controlling hormones that provide a feeling of fullness. (Human Nutrition/Netherlands) In addition, the high protein content will give you all the energy you need while maintaining a sense of fullness. By suppressing your appetite with a healthy option like the fiber found in flax butter, you are more likely to reduce your calorie intake which can help you lose weight.

Foods rich in fiber, like O3 Flax Butter also help to lower cholesterol as well as blood sugar levels.

Improve Cholesterol and Heart Health

The American Heart Association (AHA) recommends consuming more fiber, lignans and Omega-3's to improve heart and cardiovascular health. Flax seeds also contain phytosterols which help prevent the absorption of cholesterol in the intestines. It is believed that consuming phytosterols may help reduce levels of lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol.
