'WHEN' MUCH SHOULD YOU EAT?

Start your morning with a dose by adding me to your cereals, milk or smoothie. In fact you can eat me anytime.

'HOW' MUCH SHOULD YOU EAT?

You can consume me 3-4 tablespoon/day*
The recommended intake of total dietary fiber is 25 g/day for women and 38 g/day for men. 
*NOTE
1 tablespoon = 1 gm

                   
Today, we are consuming more than 10 times as many omega-6 fatty acids as we are omega-3 fatty acids because of the increase of highly processed foods in modern diets. Eating less omega-6 and more omega-3 fats, from foods like ALA-rich flax seed, can help lower the risk of chronic diseases like heart disease, stroke and cancer as well as lower LDL (bad) cholesterol. 

Chew properly because swallowing them can lead to indigestion and will leave body without any effects.
