Health Benefits of Flaxseed

This tiny seed provides the following incredible benefits for your diet:

  • Omega-3 essential fatty acids – Flaxseed is a plant source of the shorter chain omega-3 called ALA (alpha-linolenic acid). These essential fatty acids (our bodies don’t make them) play an important role in the anti-inflammatory system of our body.
  • Lignans – Flaxseed contains both plant estrogen and antioxidant qualities, with 75 to 800 times more lignans than other plant foods. Helps to reduce the risk of breast cancer in women and prostate cancer in men.
  • Fiber. Flaxseed is a great source of fiber that helps to keep the bowels regular. Each tablespoon of flax contains about 8 grams of fiber.

Our RecommendationFlaxseed Oil 1000mg is the richest source of omega-3 fatty acid. Ideal for vegetarians who want the benefits of omega-3 without taking fish oil. Not only it helps to support cardiovascular and joint health, it also promotes good digestive health.Purchase now at DIY – Flax Fried Rice
