Seeds or Seed Oil?
Many people eat whole or ground flaxseeds. They have a nutty taste and the whole seeds add a pleasant texture to baked goods.
Unfortunately, the whole seeds don’t have as much benefit, because they’re so small; your body can’t break them down to get the nutrition inside before they pass out of your system.
The Power of Flax
Considered to be nature’s best source of vegetarian Omega-3 fatty acids, which contribute to a healthy heart, skin joints, cell membranes and is an excellent energy generator. Flax Seed Oil (sometimes called Linseed Oil) helps promote overall well-being while being an excellent source of quality protein.
Flax Seed Oil contains lignans, which are naturally antibacterial and are currently being studied for their ability to bind to oestrogen receptors and interfere with potentially cancer causing affects on tissue, especially breast tissue. It is considered to be a complete amino acid (which assists the body with adequately absorbing nutrients).
Flax Seed Oil contains natural soluble and insoluble fiber. And it has also been long used topically for treating abrasions and blemishes on the skin.
Ingesting this oil in its cold-pressed state allows one to maximise the effectiveness of the beneficial properties found in the seeds, without the potential digestive issues sometimes associated with eating the seeds themselves. It is also very liver-friendly and quickly integrates into the body.
This Special Super-Nutrient Protects
Your Heart in Three Ways:
Alpha-linolenic acid works its magic by doing these three things really well…
- Helping your body to maintain a healthy inflammation response
- Limiting the thickening of arteries
- Protecting your heart from oxidative stress
These three things (especially inflammation) are the main enemies of your heart. They make your heart age faster, wreak havoc on your circulatory system and lead to preventable cardiovascular conditions. But by introducing more ALA into your diet, you could potentially circumvent all that from happening.
- Help maintain healthy blood flow
- Help keep your arteries clean
- Help improve heart health
You can reinforce your heart and whole body every day just by getting more ALA in your diet.
Take 1-3 teaspoons daily or add it to your favorite salads, raw desserts and smoothies as desired.
