Our Ingredients

Flaxseed sprouts powder

Flaxseeds are a rich source of the omega-3 fatty acid, Alpha-linolenic acid, (ALA), and contain the highest amount of lignans compared to all other plant-based foods. They are also high in fibre and a source of protein.

ALA, is most commonly found in plants and is an essential nutrient, meaning the body is not able to produce on its own, and therefore must be sourced from foods.

Lignans belong to a category of compounds that act as antioxidants.

A 2016 study showed that sprouting flaxseeds for 10 days increased its antioxidants up to  55-fold.

Did you know that chia seeds belong to the mint family? Like flaxseeds, chia seeds are a great source of Omega-3 fatty acids in the form of Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). Chia seeds are also high in fibre and protein, containing all 9 essential amino acids.

ALA is most commonly found in plants and is an essential nutrient, meaning the body is not able to produce on its own and therefore must be sourced from foods.
