Super Duper Hydrating Linseed (Flaxseed) Tea

linseedWe all know that about 60% of our body is water, hence it’s very important to stay hydrated throughout the day. Drinking fluids help maintain the function of every system in your body, including our heart, brain and muscles. Minor dehydration is the hidden cause of many illnesses.

When we are stressed water can pass straight through our body, drinking linseed tea will help absorb the water better, due to the teas viscosity.

The tea is made by boiling linseeds in water. Ideally it needs to be just a bit thicker than water and have a faint nutty taste. Don’t worry if the water comes out too thick, you can dilute it with more hot water.
