    My mom gave me a tablespoon of raw flax seeds every day throughout my childhood. Not only do they provide the omegas, but they help the bowls move and.....even strengthen your jaw muscles. :)

            is that from the old Chia Pet commercials?
            soaking them is good to wake them up, but it also makes them more slippery and less likely to get chewed. I think that grinding or blending them allows the most access to the good stuff inside. they can have a laxative effect so don't eat too much at once. If you soak them and make them into crackers in a dehydrator or low oven, they become brittle and can be chewed more easily.

            Actually my doctor tells me that flax eeds are best consumes freshly grounded. Like in a coffee grinder set aside especially for that sort of thing. Once you press for oil or grind the seed begins to oxidate, which is bad.
            My doctor says that if you do buy flax oil use it up fast.
            This is the advice that I go by.

              I've had this big bottle of flax oil i've been slowly working through for 6 months...

              That's got to be much too long.

              It may not be good for me anymore, but will it become bad for me?
