Ask any guy who’s serious about his health, and he’ll promptly tell you that an active lifestyle goes hand in hand with a proper diet. One way to maximize your efforts in the gym and in the kitchen is to ensure you’re always getting enough quality protein. Something else that could help, yet often overlooked, is fiber. Flaxseed is a quality source of both important dietary staples, and is available through supplement tablets, as well as in ground and oil form. However, its status as a protein and fiber source is far from its only benefits. We’ve compiled a list of the six best benefits of consuming flaxseed.

Curious to find out why you shouldn't neglect flaxseeds? Check out our slideshow above.
