You can create several simple healthy recipes by adding flaxseeds. Don’t let the size of these tiny seeds fool you, they deliver a powerhouse of nutrition to your diet.
Flax seeds are easy to find and are not expensive. Flaxseeds are the best source of omega 3 fatty acids. The lack of the omega-3 fatty acids in our diet has been correlated with a host of illnesses.
So adding these omega-3’s to our diet could help prevent or possibly reverse these conditions. Omega-3’s have also been called brain food. I don’t know about you, but I need all the food for my brain I can get! The chronic digestive issues in this country have had a negative effect on out health.
You can get the recommended doses of daily fiber by adding 2/3 a cup to your daily diet.
Flaxseeds support intestinal health by acting as a broom and cleaning out the toxins, mucous,and parasites. The antioxidant benefits of flaxseeds is more powerful than that of blueberries.
Antioxidants benefits have been associated with the prevention of cardiovascular disease,cancer,and diabetes. I have read that flaxseeds may protect against breast,prostate, and colon cancers.
The phytonutrients in flaxseeds are associated with regulating menstrual cycles, eliminating menopausal symptoms, and may help lower cholesterol.
I have found adding flaxseeds to my diet is a simple way to create simple healthy recipes.
