    1. Whole seeds dont go rancid.
    2. Whole seeds are alot cheaper than oil.
    3. seeds have a ton of fiber. 10g per serving.
    4. they have about 1000 times more lignans than even the "lignan rich" oils.

    because you can't just eat them. It's a pain in the ass the blend them up. chewing them would leave you with some nasty looking shits and undigested seeds. If you know an easier way than blending them into a coffee grinder, let me know

    why not benefit from both worlds? The complete flax seed will aid your digestive tract; and when it's ground up you benefit from the antioxidants.

    "Your body can't derive the full benefit of flaxseeds if you consume them whole, so ground (milled) flaxseed is the way to go. You can buy prepared flaxseed flour or meal, but because of its high fat content, the ground seeds can go rancid quickly. You're better off grinding your own, using a coffee grinder or mini food processor."

    Flaxseeds

    :cool: gotcha. We keep a sealed bag of pre-ground flaxseeds in my fridge and they seem to stay fresh for extended periods of time
