BNS FLAXSEED MOUTH FRESHNER
Flaxseeds are the excellent vegetarian source of Omega-3-fatty acids...which play critical role in many functions in our body and are essential for good health.
Flax seeds are also called as linseed, ulsi or teesi and can be found at the local grocery stores. It is especially important for a vegetarian as it is a rich source of Omega 3 Fatty Acid, has high fiber content and has important micronutrients.
They are easily available in the form of seeds and oil (remember linseed oil that we use in oil paintings) and have been around us but most of us never noticed it and suddenly everyone is treating it like an exotic ingredient. If you pick any good mouth freshener you would see that it is present there. In fact, if you eat multigrain bread then you all find it there. It adds crunchiness to it and I love it.
Now before we go on and on about it, here are some benefits of adding them to your diet
