HEALTH BENEFITS
Best vegetarian source of Omega -3- fatty acids
They are a rich source of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), a mostly plant-based omega-3 fatty acid, studies have shown that the ALA in flax seeds prevented cholesterol from being deposited in the blood vessels of the heart, reduced inflammation in the arteries, and reduced tumour growth.
Flax Seeds Are a Rich Source of Lignans, Which May Reduce Cancer Risk, Lignans are plant compounds that have antioxidant and oestrogen properties, both of which can help lower the risk of breast cancer particularly in postmenopausal women and reduced levels of a prostate cancer marker, suggesting a lower risk of prostate cancer
Flax seeds contain two types of dietary fibre — soluble (20–40%) and insoluble (60–80%).
On one hand, soluble fibre increases the consistency of the contents of your intestine and slows down your digestion rate. This has been shown to help regulate blood sugar and lower cholesterol. On the other hand, insoluble fibre allows more water to bind to the stools, increases their bulk, and results in softer stools. This is useful for preventing constipation and for those who have irritable bowel syndrome or diverticular disease
Flax seeds have a natural ability to lower blood pressure.
Flaxseed protein is rich in the amino acid’s arginine, aspartic acid and glutamic acid
Flax seeds’ dietary fibre content may aid weight control by suppressing hunger and increasing feelings of fullness.
