  • Flaxseeds Are High in Omega-3 Fats
    If you are a vegetarian or don’t eat fish, flaxseeds can be your best source of omega-3 fats.
    They are a rich source of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), a mostly plant-based omega-3 fatty acid (2).
    ALA is one of the two essential fatty acids that you have to obtain from the food you eat, as your body doesn’t produce them.
  • Observational studies show that those who eat flaxseeds have a lower risk of breast cancer, particularly postmenopausal women.Nevertheless, the evidence thus far points to flaxseeds being a potentially valuable food in the fight against various cancers.
  • What’s more, flaxseeds contain two types of dietary fiber — soluble (20–40%) and insoluble (60–80%).
    This fiber duo gets fermented by the bacteria in the large bowel, bulks up stools and results in more regular bowel movements.On one hand, soluble fiber increases the consistency of the contents of your intestine and slows down your digestion rate. This has been shown to help regulate blood sugar and lower cholesterol.
  • Flaxseeds May Improve Cholesterol. Another health benefit of flaxseeds is their ability to lower cholesterol levels.
    In one study in people with high cholesterol, consuming 3 tablespoons (30 grams) of flaxseed powder daily for three months lowered total cholesterol by 17% and “bad” LDL cholesterol by almost 20% (19).
    Another study of people with diabetes found that taking 1 tablespoon (10 grams) of flaxseed powder daily for one month resulted in a 12% increase in “good” HDL cholesterol (20).
    In postmenopausal women, consuming 30 grams of flaxseeds daily lowered total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol by approximately 7% and 10%, respectively
  • Flaxseeds May Help Control Blood Sugar.Type 2 diabetes is a major health problem worldwide.
    It’s characterized by high blood sugar levels as a result of either the body’s inability to secrete insulin or resistance to it.
    A few studies have found that people with type 2 diabetes who added 10–20 grams of flaxseed powder to their daily diet for at least one month saw reductions of 8–20% in blood sugar levels.
