A Little History

Flaxseed, Flaxseeds, Organic Flax, Organic Flaxseed, BumbleBar, JunoBar, Organic, Vegan, Vegetarian

Flaxseed rose to popularity due to King Charlemagne in the 8th century. He felt flaxseed had such strong health benefits that he passed a law that required his subjects to add it to their diet. Thirteen centuries and several studies later, we’re inclined to agree with Charlemagne! Only about the health benefits of flaxseed. Not necessarily about passing laws that force people to consume it, eek.
