Flax Seeds and Nutrition
Hey Everybody! Since this month is National Nutrition Month (March) I've been trying to read up on the Buzz about Flax Seeds in health, healing and nutrition. I just had to pass this on to everyone because the finding for healing the body of certain cancers and other aliments is astounding. Not just in humans either. In cats and dogs as well!! Ground Flax Seed is a source of omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, protein, magnesium, iron, potassiym, and ugnans!!! The photo you see here is of whole flax seeds but you can buy it whole, ground flax meal, bottled flax oil, or gel-caps. And... you can cook with it too! Breads and crackers are very popular! Sprinkled on oatmeal and salads are popular! Blended in yogart and cottage cheese is VERY popular! Possible medical benefits Flax seeds contain high levels of lignans and Omega-3 fatty acids. Lignans may benefit the heart, possess anti-cancer properties and studies performed on mice found reduced growth in specific types of tumours. Not just in mice though, in humans, dogs and cats. Initial studies suggest that flaxseed taken in the diet may benefit individuals with certain types of breast and prostate cancers. Flax may also lessen the severity of diabetes by stabilizing blood-sugar levels. There is some support for the use of flax seed as a laxative due to its dietary fiber content. Articles support the use of it for weight loss as well. Flax seed oil can be taken daily for Nutrition and good health. Flax Seed is known as "Life Giving Oils" Information is key! Everybody please google "flax seeds" and read up on this. The results of this is shocking.
