At Kroger it's in the specially food section with the flours. Retailers obviously don't know what to do with it. LOL

You might try near the cereals too, such as oatmeal, grains like that - I think that's where it's at at my Wally world.

Most Wal-marts carry flax on the aisle near the flour. It is on the top shelf at ours near the end of the aisle. You might ask them if they have it. Sometimes it's hard to locate.

You can also order it online from Amazon or Netrition.com.

Bobs red mill never heard of that i will look. Our walmart seems to not have. We do have a

Public store in town too but it is costly to shop there. Maybe i can buy a few things there like this red mill brand. I did look at all the stores for flax seeds and found none.
Oh yes i hate pills hate to take the ones i have to daily . Figured seeds help taste of some

foods like tuna i use to love do not now that i need to eat it tho.

Thanks for tips from all

I would also go with the seeds or meal but you should not eat the seeds whole since you have diverticulitis. You can always use the seeds if you have a grinder. That's what I did before they had the flax meal in my area.

I'm not a big fan of supplements. People tend to want to take too many and they can be dangerous.

I use the flax meal. Besides Bob's Red Mill brand, which you can find in Walmart and some supermarkets, as well as health food stores, Costco carries a large bag - I don't remember the name. You should keep ground flax meal in the fridge or freezer so it doesn't get rancid.

I sprinkle it in my oatmeal. Even though it has carbs, it's high in fiber.

Depends on how good you are at chewing the seeds. Anything you don't chew up passes through pretty much intact.

I think you need to use flaxseed meal, not the whole flax seeds. It is my understanding that your system just passes them through rather than digesting them, consequently you don't get the benefits that you do with the flax meal. Also, I've "heard" that using the oil is not as beneficial as the flax meal either. The flax meal is a good fiber booster, plus Omega 3's and lots of good stuff for you.

You can order them online if you don't have a store that carries it, our Walmart super store does carry it, Bob's Red Mill brand is a good one. That's what I use to make the MIM.

I add flaxseed to my stir fried veggies. I think they taste good, so I don't need any other reason to add them.

My preference is to get my nutrients from food and not from pills, so I'd eat the seeds instead of taking a flax oil pill.

Ok anyone use these. I read all over take flax seeds . I tho as of yet can find none. Dr Oz

says take them too.

Saw flax oil capsules today wonder if there the same. Bottle only said i could SEE was good

for ones heart.


The seeds are suppose to aid in digestion. Like

I have diverticilous so wonder if they do help and where would one get some seeds?
Walmart is about our only store minus dollar stores and wally did not have seeds minus

celery i did get some suppose to aid in water retention.
