Flaxseed has been around for centuries. Furthermore–scientifically; there’s evidence it can help to lower your blood pressure, risk of certain cancers, diabetes, heart disease… the list goes on! Let’s dive into all the top reasons why you should add this plant-based superfood into your daily diet.
Flaxseed contains both soluble and insoluble fiber. Each of these are incredibly important for gut health and maintaining a healthy immune system. The soluble fiber draws water into your gut and helps to soften your stools & support regular bowel movements while the insoluble fiber adds bulk! It’s pretty awesome that flaxseed contains both types of fiber– making it perfect to supplement with daily. Kill two birds with one stone.
Additionally, flaxseeds contain a multitude of cancer-fighting nutrients such as omega-3s, protein, fiber and B vitamins. Foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids are especially important to eat because they help to fight inflammation. They promote brain & eye health and there is evidence they help to fight depression and anxiety. Talk about an all-in-one superfood!
Flaxseed is commonly used for optimizing digestion, gut health, and constipation due to its high
fiber content. It can also help your metabolic health and aid in weight loss. Make sure to
increase your water intake–if you don’t drink enough water, your body won’t be able to digest
the excess fiber which can result in constipation and stomach cramps.
With all their health benefits, you’d be crazy not to add flaxseeds into your daily diet! Adding four tablespoons of flaxseed has been shown to aid in digestion, weight loss and all of the other great benefits we’ve just discussed… So what are you waiting for?
