Eating an entire flax seed is not recommended because it can stick to the intestinal wall and cause inflammation. When consuming flax seeds to benefit from their omega-3 fatty acid, it’s necessary to grind them so that they can be properly absorbed. For example, flax seeds can be added to yogurt or salad. Once grounded, flax seeds oxidize quickly, so it’s also necessary to keep surplus refrigerated.
