Forti-Flax is an extremely rich source of Omega-3, dietary fiber, protein, mucilage and phenolic compounds.
The viscous nature of soluble fibers such as flaxseed mucilage is believed to slow down digestion and absorption of starch, resulting in lower levels of blood glucose, insulin and other endocrine responses.
