I haven't heard of this. What inspired you to try basil seeds as a suppliment?
Personally, I use moderation with plants with a lot of fragrant oils like herbs. I really do like basil, but I don't eat pesto very often. It seems to cross the line into medicinal, and I guess I feel like I don't really know what I'm doing so I shouldn't be going there. Just my conservativeness I guess.
If it is fiber you want to add to your diet, green leafies are the obvious superfoods, but of course there are the whole grains, and the whole fruits, beans, lentils, frozen vegies are convenient, prunes are the traditional favorite, and, um, they have always worked quite well for me, even in the plum form. You don't even need to go to hemp or flax seed--why spend the money?
