The seeds of the Flax plant have been a source of food and medicine since ancient times. Used as provisions in Asia and Europe since at least 6000 BCE, the plant’s brown seeds were commonly used to prepare balms and healing remedies for people. Today they are valued for their health benefits as well, treating a range of ailments from heart disease to lupus. There are two types of Flax Seed plants that have emerged through selective breeding; long stemmed types of Flax Seed plants grown for their fibers and short-stemmed types of Flax Seed plants grown for their seeds. The seeds from the Flax plant are flat and oval. They are pointed at one end and are light to dark russet brown. A yellow or gold variety is also grown but in much smaller quantities.
