Tell me some more about the Flax seed that may not have been covered on the Flax Seed Thread....
You want to use 2 T in the morning and 2 T at night. Start with 1T in the am and 1T in the pm until your are used to it. The am dose will give you energy all day. The pm dose will heal your body and allow you to sleep all night more evenly and more rested.
1) How much do you measure out to be ground each day?
2) What device do you use to grind it?
Use a coffee grinder to grind the seeds to either a flake or powder form...just as long as it fully ground as you can't obtain the full nutrition from the whole seeds.
3) Is the resulting grind a powder or a moist mash?
It is totally up to you how you wish to consume it...I like it flaky others like it in powder form. Just make sure it is fully ground up with no seeds showing. Then add juice to the consistency that you want. Most people will add a lot of juice so you can drink it as it will start to swell up as soon as you add fluids.
4) Could you just ingest the powder or do you have to mix it?
You really need to consume it with fluids...although some people make a form of oatmeal from it or sprinkle it over cereal...but you'll find that 2T is about 4 T ground so the most efficient way to consume it is via juice. Hint: Change up the juice so your flax tastes different...pineapple or cranberry are REALLY good...papaya or mango or berry juices are delicious as well!
5) What is the cost of the Golden Flax?
Only use golden flax and try to get it directly from the farmer so as to avoid acceptable rat parts per million if it is stored in grain silos and shipped all over the country. I get my flax directly from the growers in N. Dakota and it has NEVER been touched by human hands, comes sealed in a plastic jar so its easy to store and easy to use. I am a distribution site for several states so drop ship directly to stores as well as individuals. The cost of flax is $16 for a months supply or $45 for a 4 months supply. And the shipping is about $4-6 depending on where it is shipped in the country and which size you buy. (I'll give SD members free shipping if they want to try it.) You can get it from other sources but I've had people like Nextariel tell me that the taste of the flax I use is superior to what she had been using and that she slept better using my flax then what she had been using. So the small premium is more then worth it. Thanks, -ww
