sprouting the flax seed changes their properties. if you read the thread below about you can see a few posts i made about it. for instance one study showed that germinating flax seed dramatically increases levels of lysophosphatidylcholine (LPC), while another study shows that LPC protects cells against e coli and pathogenic bacteria and that it could treat Sepsis, which is a whole body inflammation due to infection.
so, you can see that sprouting could have lots of benefits.
so, Budwig didn't say anything about sprouting flax?
