Pardon the pun, I just had to!
“The most useful” translates to Linum usitatissimum, which is Latin for flax seeds. (Healthline.com)
A typical serving size for flax seeds is about 1 tablespoon. If you’ve ever gotten down to the bottom of one of our bags of Coco, Bee & Nut you won’t find crumbs, but a mix of flax, chia and shredded coconut. We like that twist on “the bottom of the barrel” saying. It’s actually quite the bonus handful!
Here are some health benefits of consuming flax seeds on a regular basis:
- Flax seeds are filled with many nutrients, but mostly omega-3 fatty acids, lignans and fiber. Omega-3s prevent cholesterol build up, reduce inflammation, and are known to reduce tumor growth. Lignans: these are plant compounds with antioxidant and estrogen properties; they help lower cancer risk in both women and men. Fiber: flax contains both soluble and insoluble fiber which results in better digestion and helps prevent constipation.
- Flax contains high quality proteins!
- Flax seeds helps with blood pressure, aids to keep hunger at bay, and can help control blood sugar levels.
