The Benefits of Flaxseed
Is flaxseed the new wonder food? Preliminary studies show that it may help fight heart disease, diabetes and breast cancer.
Some call it one of the most powerful plant foods on the planet. Theres some evidence it may help reduce your risk of heart disease, cancer, stroke, and diabetes. Thats quite a tall order for a tiny seed thats been around for centuries.
Flaxseed was cultivated in Babylon as early as 3000 BC. In the 8th century, King Charlemagne believed so strongly in the health benefits of flaxseed that he passed laws requiring his subjects to consume it. Now, thirteen centuries later, some experts say we have preliminary research to back up what Charlemagne suspected.
Flaxseed is found in all kinds of today's foods from crackers to frozen waffles to oatmeal. The Flax Council estimates close to 300 new flax-based products were launched in the U.S. and Canada in 2010 alone. Not only has consumer demand for flaxseed grown, agricultural use has also increased. Flaxseed is what's used to feed all those chickens that are laying eggs with higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids.
Omega-3 essential fatty acids, "good" fats that have been shown to have heart-healthy effects. Each tablespoon of ground flaxseed contains about 1.8 grams of plant omega-3s.
Lignans, which have both plant estrogen and antioxidant qualities. Flaxseed contains 75 to 800 times more lignans than other plant foods.
Fiber. Flaxseed contains both the soluble and insoluble types.
10 Creative Ways to Eat Flax
# 1: Morning Cereal
Start your morning with a healthy dose of omega-3s by sprinkling over cold cereal or stirring it into hot cereal like oatmeal.
# 2: Smoothies
Flax seeds add a slightly, but not overwhelming, nutty flavor. Add 1 tablespoon of whole flax seeds into your morning smoothie for an extra 2 grams of protein.
# 3: Parfait
Combine yogurt, fruit, and flax for a delicious morning parfait.
# 4: Green Salads
Use flax oil to make an omega-3-packed vinaigrette for any salad. Youll get more fiber and a nice crunch, however, by topping the salad with the actual seeds (whole or ground).
# 5: Protein Salads
When preparing a tuna, chicken, or egg salad, mix ground flaxseeds into the dressing.
