Flaxseeds are small oil seeds that contain omega-3 fats, fiber, and other plant compounds. They may help improve digestion and reduce the risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and cancer.

Flaxseeds are a good source of several vitamins and minerals needed for optimal health. These include thiamine (vitamin B1), copper, molybdenum, magnesium, and phosphorus.

They are full of protein and just loaded with nutrients.

Flaxseed comes from the flax plant (also known as Linum usitatissimum), which grows to be about 2 feet tall. It likely was first grown in Egypt but has been cultivated all around the world. It is used as an ingredient in traditional medicines.

If you are a vegetarian or don’t eat fish, flaxseeds can be your best source of omega-3.

Ground Flaxseed powder is rich in proteins. So, when you consume a teaspoon of flaxseeds, along with dietary fibre, the protein content suppresses your appetite. This prevents you from overeating, thereby helping you lose weight. Flaxseeds are low in starch and sugar; hence they are not high in calories.

The shells on the whole seed prevent proper digestion and reduce the health benefits purely as a result of your body’s inability to get to the goodness locked away inside – Milled flaxseeds solve this digestion problem nicely giving your body an EASY job of getting to all the nutrients.

Benefits

  • A great source of Protein, Magnesium, Iron & Zinc
  • Great for digestion, hair, skin & bones.
  • Flaxseeds are good sources of many nutrients. Their health benefits are mainly due to their content of omega-3 fats, antioxidants and fibre.
  • Flaxseeds contain a group of nutrients called lignans, which have powerful antioxidant and oestrogen properties.
  • They may help in preventing breast and prostate cancer, as well as other types of cancer.
  • The high fibre content of flax seeds can help lower cholesterol and may play an important role in improving heart health.
  • Flaxseeds have been proven to lower blood pressure and are especially helpful for those with high blood pressure.
  • A good source of plant-based protein and can be an alternative protein source for people who do not eat meat.
  • May lower blood sugar due to their insoluble fibre content.
  • They can be a beneficial addition to the diet of people with diabetes.
  • Not many of us know that ground flaxseeds or milled flaxseeds are more effective for losing weight. This is because the whole flaxseeds make it difficult for the digestive system to absorb all the nutrients present in them. On the other hand, ground flaxseeds are easily absorbed and there are more chances that you get the essential fats, proteins and dietary fibre present in them.
