Linseed (or Flax) is naive to region from the Mediterranean to India and was probably first domesticated in the Fertile Crescent. Flax was extensively cultivated in ancient Egypt. Linseed is an erect annual plant growing to 1.2m tall, with slender stems. The leaves are glaucous green, slender lanceolate, 20-40mm long and 3mm broad. The flowers are pure pale blue, 15-25mm diameter, with five petals; they can also be bright red. The fruit is a round, dry capsule 5-9mm diameter, containing several glossy brown seeds shaped like an apple pip, 4-7mm long. In addition to referring to the plant itself, the word "flax" may refer to the unspun fibres of the flax plant. Linseeds contain high levels of lignans and Omega-3 fatty acids. Lignans may benefit the heart and possess anti-cancer properties. Initial studies suggest that linseed taken in the diet may benefit individuals with certain types of breast and prostate cancers. Linseed may also lessen the severity of diabetes by stabilising blood sugar levels. There is some support for the use of linseed as a laxative due to its dietary fibre content though excessive consumption without liquid can result in intestinal blockage. Consuming large amounts of linseed can impair the effectiveness of certain oral medications, due to its fibre content.
