Linseeds are not only healthy for humans, but can also be used as supplementary feed for horses. This is because the seeds have a high proportion (over 50 percent) of unsaturated omega-3 fatty acids. This benefits our animal friends in terms of health and reduces inflammatory processes in the body. Linseeds are typically boiled or soaked overnight before being given to horses.

Linseeds are small seeds that can be eaten whole, ground up, or made into an oil. Linseeds are also a great binder, and work really well as an egg replacer in lots of recipes.

Health benefits of brown linseed include improving digestive function, reducing bloating, preventing constipation, as well as improving blood cholesterol levels and heart health.
