How We're Different

Say goodbye to coarse, dense and hard-to-mix flax! Viva Naturals Organic Ground Flaxseed offers one of the finest mills available—thanks to a unique sifting system that reduces the number of whole or broken seeds. The result is a product that is super-soft and light. Our flax crops are grown in high mineral soil under full sunlight and cool winds for optimal nutritional value. We harvest only the finest, fully developed flax seeds, which are milled at cool temperatures and never heated, preserving essential omega-3’s and powerful phytonutrients. Certified organic and non-GMO, our ground flaxseed provides a hefty amount of dietary fiber and essential fatty acids in every serving, and our light-barrier packaging guarantees maximum freshness!

Discover Flaxseed

Tiny Seed. Big Benefits.

As one of the very first crops cultivated by man, flaxseed was traditionally recognized for its exceptionally strong fibers and medicinal properties worldwide. Today, it’s considered one of the most powerful plant foods on the planet. Rich in heart-loving omega-3 essential fatty acids, lignans, and both soluble and insoluble fiber, flaxseed bestows health benefits like no other—but to unlock its full potential, it should be eaten in ground or crushed form. Keep ground flaxseed on hand to transform shakes, salads, baked goods, yogurt, oatmeal and more with its delightful nutty taste and nutrient-packed punch.

Promotes Cardiovascular Health - Ground flaxseed is high in alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), which is critical for keeping your heart and arteries healthy. In fact, researchers in the Lyon Heart Study followed subjects who experienced heart complications over four years and documented that those on ALA-rich diets had a 50-70% lower risk of a recurrence.*

Healthy Weight Management - The soluble fiber in flaxseed slows digestion, helps suppress appetite and balance blood sugar levels, all of which aid in achieving and maintaining a healthy weight. A study published in the British Journal of Nutrition in April 2015 reported that insulin sensitivity improved in overweight postmenopausal women when they consumed flaxseed.*

Healthy Inflammatory Response - The ALA and lignans in flaxseeds have been shown to support the body’s cellular response to inflammatory factors. Just two tablespoons of ground flaxseed contain more than 140% of your recommended intake of omega-3 fatty acids, which researchers have shown to relieve joint stiffness.*

Supports Digestive Health- High in ALA and both soluble and insoluble fiber, and one of the highest sources of magnesium anywhere, flaxseed is a regular(ity) rockstar. These nutrients protect the digestive tract, maintain GI health and keep things moving. So don’t just trust your gut. Take care of it.*

Ways to Enjoy



Smoothies and Juices


Adding ground flaxseed adds a sweet and nutty flavor—and some serious health-conscious cred—to any smoothie or juice. It also adds necessary fiber. Plus, for those actively watching their weight, adding just a little fiber-rich ground flaxseed makes it even more filling and substantial—which helps you feel full sooner and longer.


Baked Goods


Thanks to its bounty of omega-3’s, lignans and fiber, adding ground flaxseed to cookies, cakes, muffins, breads, pancakes and other baking projects turns guilty pleasures into nutritious ones. For best results, replace the oil or shortening in the recipe with ground flaxseed at a 3:1 ratio (i.e. 1 cup of ground flaxseed subs for a 1/3 cup of oil). Or, make a recipe vegan-friendly by replacing each egg with 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseed plus 3 tablespoons of water).


Salads and Salad Dressing


Sprinkle ground flaxseed on top of a salad, or mix it into the dressing, like this one: Blend 1 cup of extra virgin olive oil, 1/4 cup of raw honey, 1/4 cup Dijon mustard, 6 tablespoons of Viva Naturals Apple Cider Vinegar, 2 tablespoons of Viva Naturals Organic Ground Flaxseed and 1/8 teaspoon of unrefined sea salt in a blender or food processor until well combined. Store in a glass jar in the fridge.


Oatmeal and Yogurt


Ground flaxseed is not only a source of omega-3’s, lignans, fiber and protein, it’s high in minerals like potassium, calcium, magnesium and folic acid. So top your oatmeal and yogurt with Viva Naturals Organic Ground Flaxseed for some extra nutritional oomph. Top it up with even more fiber, protein, calcium, magnesium and iron by sprinkling on some Viva Naturals Organic Chia Seeds, too.
