Flaxseed is one of the richest sources of ALA (alpha linolenic acid), an omega-3 fatty acid essential for the healthy function of our bodies and which helps to combat inflammation that can lead to heart disease, diabetes, cancer and arthritis.
It is also a great source of lingans, which are natural anti-oxidants that reduce the activity of cell-damaging free radicals, slow aging and increase wellness. Lingans are also phytoestrogens (a class of phytonutrient) which means that they are plant-derived substances that mimic the action of estrogen hormones in the body. Research has shown that lingans can treat the symptoms of menopause and reduce the risk of certain hormone-dependent cancers, such as breast and colon cancer.
Finally, flax is high in both soluble and insoluble fibers which lower cholesterol, stabilize blood sugar, and keep digestive systems in good working order.
