Miracle Flaxseed

 

  


Flaxseed
is a miracle food that is just right for heart health.  It contains nutrients which can apply a coating to your arteries just like a nonstick spray thereby allowing your blood to flow smoothly.  It helps reduces high blood pressure, cholesterol and risk of heart disease.

  1. Lowers High Blood Pressure
     

    • Flaxseed contains alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) which is a type of omega-3 fatty acid that can help to decrease blood pressure.  You just need to take 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseed to get 1.8 grams of ALA and 2.2 grams of fiber, which includes both insoluble and soluble forms.  A diet rich in fiber has been proven to help lower blood pressure.

     

  2. Lowers cholesterol
     

    • Flaxseed may be a little seed but its benefits are real powerful.  It can easily sweep away cholesterol that clogs your arteries right out of your system. 
       

    • Flaxseed has the ability to lower total and LDL (bad cholesterol) without impacting HDL (good cholesterol) levels. 
       

    • Flaxseed, just like oatmeal, is high in mucilage, the type of soluble fiber that is effective in helping to lower cholesterol.  This sticky fiber slows down food passing through the stomach and small intestines thus allowing the HDL particles to have sufficient time to pick up cholesterol and whisk it to the liver allowing it to convert to bile then getting rid of it.
       

    • Flaxseed also contains lignans, a estrogen-like chemicals, that works by affecting enzymes involved in cholesterol metabolism.
       

    • Consuming 2 - 6 tablespoons of ground flaxseed daily for just 4 weeks can lower total cholesterol by 9% and LDL cholesterol by 18% in young healthy adults, postmenopausal women or those who has moderately high cholesterol levels.
       

  3. Lowers risk of heart disease
     

    • Flaxseed has the capability to fight inflammation, a key player in heart disease, by blocking cytokines, pro-inflammatory eicosanoids and platelet activating factor.
       

    • The ALA in flaxseed has been proven to help lower the risk of heart disease and heart attacks as it has the ability to reduce blood clotting, a contributor to strokes and heart attacks as well as to prevent abnormal heart rhythms.
       

    • Just consuming 1-2 tablespoons daily can provide you with incredible heart insurance.
