Flax is one of the oldest crops known to man. Even the ancient Egyptians cultivated it extensively. In addition to the omega fatty acids, flax seed contains alpha-linoleic acid, which offers benefits to your dog’s immune system. Alpha-linoleic acid also has an anti-inflammatory effect, so it might aid your dog if he shows signs of arthritis or other joint problems. Flaxseed has more benefits that just Omega 3 oil. Ground flax seed has fiber, protein, flax hull lignans as well as Omega 3. Lignans are found in the hull of flax and have powerful anti-inflammatory as well as anti-cancer, anti-oxidant and anti-fungal health benefits. Protein that comes from a vegetarian source is sometimes difficult to find. Flax is an excellent plant source of protein.
