In the quest for the most potent of all superfoods, the itty-bitty flax seed has been shown to pack a monumental amount of essential nutrients within it's protective shield. It's definitely all it's cracked up to be.
Have flax seeds, will thrive. At least that's what the multitudes of studies show. First and foremost, flax seeds are considered one of the best plant sources of omega-3 fatty acids, those essential "good fats" that
- help maintain healthy cholesterol levels
- combat inflammation
- regulate blood sugar levels
Meaning they help in the battle against heart disease, diabetes, and arthritis. But incorporating flax seeds into your diet will do so much more, including:
- boost your immunity
- improve digestive health
- reduce the risk of certain cancers, especially breast cancer
- keep hormones on an even keel, important during menopause
- strengthen your hair and nails
- support weight loss and prevent obesity
You can use the whole seeds for extra crunch, but you'll reap the most health benefits by grinding them first. Sprinkle them, whole or ground, into practically anything: oatmeal, yogurt, smoothies, salads, and soups, and add to breads, crackers, cookies, granola, and other goodies before baking.
