A well-balanced diet and increased physical activity can help offer some protection against these and other illnesses. Why eat whole grains? You can fulfill 29% of the daily-recommended intake of whole grains with one serving of Healthy Life Flaxseed Bread with Omega-3. Two slices contain 14 grams of whole grain. Containing antioxidants not found in other foods, whole grains pack a powerful punch against cancer-causing free radicals.

The vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and phytochemicals in whole grains all work together with the fiber content to help reduce the risk of some cancers and other chronic illnesses.

When the balance is out of proportion, we are cut off from the protective benefits of Omega-3 and virtually every area of our body is susceptible to problems. The omega-3's we need can be found in marine sources (like salmon) and plant sources (like flaxseed).
