    In fact, Charles the Great ordered his subjects to eat flaxseeds for their health. So it’s no wonder they acquired the name Linum usitatissimum, meaning “the most useful.”
    Nowadays, flaxseeds are emerging as a “super food” as more scientific research points to their health benefits.
    Here are 10 health benefits of flaxseeds that are backed by science.

    Very informative. I did not know flaxseeds could lower blood pressure. I did learn the hard way that flaxseeds should be kept in the freezer and flaxseed oil in the fridge. They both become rancid very fast at room temperature.

    Good to know. I refrigerate all seeds, just in case.

    I wonder how flax seeds were stored in the past, before everyone owned a fridge or freezer? I have heard the oil must be refrigerated, but didn't know about freezing the seeds. Like you Islander, I keep my edible seeds in the fridge, including pulses.

    Hmm. Maybe they were only eaten fresh? Really, no idea!
