Flax Versus Hemp Versus ChiaDr Holly flax chia hemp

I often hear people claiming that one is better than the other. They are all excellent sources of nutrients depending on what you are looking for. My suggestion is that you buy a bag of each, make sure the flax is ground, and put them together in a large glass jar in your fridge – and benefit from all of them.

All excellent nutrient sources. And all have a broad spectrum of nutrients for everything from anti-inflammatory to anti-oxidant, amino acids for building, fats for transporting and insulating; vitamins and minerals and much more.
