Flaxseed benefits

There is a seed that is full of benefits, and many cannot even imagine how important it is to use it in our food intake, of course as I mentioned earlier all with balance and good judgment works better.

Flaxseed is a small seed that comes from a flower is believed that the plant is native to Egypt, but it can be found in almost every country in the world.

Flaxseed oil or flax is also appreciated in vegetarian diets and / or vegan, as it is the main source of plant omega acids essential to the body. It can be taken daily, many individuals like to add one tablespoon of Flaxseed oil in their salad. I have a small recommendation you just remember this oil is unsuitable for frying as it decomposes above 180 degrees Celsius.




Many studies indicate that 40% of flaxseed dietary fiber consists of a third party which is soluble fiber and insoluble fiber rest. Both are important for maintaining a healthy digestive system by promoting bowel movement (This is especially beneficial for you if you are among the millions of people who suffer from constipation). Other studies have shown all the benefits that this seed brings to our cardiovascular system since it lower the level of bad cholesterol in the blood.


Therefore, reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease; very common in America today due to lack of fiber and polyunsaturated fats in the diets of people.

Many pharmaceutical companies do not want you to be educated as ignorance gives them a lot of money. It is very funny even in commercials, they say the site effects of the drugs they sell, wish in many cases can be even worse than the disease itself.

Let me ask you a question have you ever seen a TV ad talking about the negative site effects of any kind of fruit or vegetable or in this case any of the millions of seeds good for our health?
Going back to the Flaxseed oil seeds, what is the way to consume them?

The best way to take them it is to ground them. This is because the oil oxidizes rapidly, due to its high percentage of unsaturated fats, and whole flaxseed is too hard for the body to take it. It's best to buy whole flaxseed and grind it at home, so we know for sure the quality and quantity consumed.
You will find that It's easy to add ground flaxseed to salads and other foods, or dissolve it in water or juice and drink it on an empty stomach. Ground flaxseed reduces cooking times, as causes brown food faster and is resistant to high temperatures.




Check out the Properties
The soluble fiber helps regulate blood pressure and blood-glucose levels in the blood is also associated with the prevention of colonic diverticula inflammation and prostate cancer.
Insoluble fiber also helps the bowel movement, serves as food for the bacterial flora, which helps digest food for better absorption of nutrients.

Linoleic acid is necessary to form anti-inflammatory eicosanoids. The eicosanoids formed by the Omega 6 are inflammatory and inhibit the formation of other eicosanoids. The eicosanoids are an important role in fighting and preventing arthritis, eczema, asthma and health conditions related to the female reproductive organs.

Flaxseed also has a component called phytochemicals that fight free radicals, providing the body with antioxidant and anticancer effects.

Flaxseed is rich in B complex, magnesium and manganese. It also has significant amounts of phosphorus and thiamine. Just two tablespoons of flaxseed provide 8 percent of the recommended dietary fiber, while containing only 74 calories.




Medicinal and therapeutic uses
One of the most widespread uses of flaxseed is as a natural medicine to treat constipation (must be taken with plenty of water, or otherwise, it can backfire). Because its action is mechanical, not irritating your stomach.

You can also help treat diverticulitis early, even if it is very late if abused or the dose may be counterproductive.

Flaxseed may be a good addition to a detox diet, helping to evacuate the intestine more easily.
It is used to lower cholesterol and cell regeneration. Studies suggest that it may help prevent blood clots, stroke and heart arrhythmia.

For its part, the eicosanoids of flaxseed studies have linked the battle against breast cancer, endometriosis and ovarian cysts.

There are many benefits for flax. You have to use them!
Of course as I mentioned earlier all with balance and good judgment works better.
