Flaxseeds and psyllium husk provide a good source of soluble fibre, which promotes elimination by sweeping waste out of the colon more efficiently. In addition, both are known to have positive effects on cardiovascular health.

Flaxseeds are also a good source of omega-3 essential fatty acids, the ‘good’ fats, which have been shown to benefit our cardiovascular system. Each tablespoon of ground flaxseed contains approximately 1.6 grams of plant omega-3s.
