Flaxseeds contain high levels of lignans (natural chemicals). While flaxseeds do appear to lose some of their actual nutritional benefits during baking, the lignans remain stable. These lignans provide many important benefits to your pet including: antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal, anti-inflammatory and anticancer properties.
