Flax Seeds?

Are we talking about the kind of Flax seeds you buy in a drug store with the vitamins? Used for constipation or something like that?
Just want to make sure before I buy them.

Thanx,
Jen

    To make FSG. I use the whole seeds - the ones people buy to sprinkle on salads and stuff like that. I get them from Whole Foods where they sell them loose along with different grains and berries. So, I can buy a small quantity at a time (usually about 1/4 cup) and then get more when I run out. I have successfully used old seeds as well, but it seems to take longer to reach a good consistency. Anyways, to answer your question - the whole seeds are what you should be looking for (they're about the size of sesame seeds). I've never tried with flax meal (ground up seeds) so I can't comment on whether that would work!

    LOL, yes, that is the same one. Make sure to get the seeds (not ground or flax seed oil). Some people found that the Gold flax seed yields better results. There are a few threads regarding FSG if you have further questions.
