Tips for Serving

 In Cereal  - One of the best ways to eat flax seeds is for breakfast. Try them in any type of cereal, although they mix especially well with oatmeal.

 In Homemade Granola Bars  - Ever made your own granola bars? No? Try these, and add some flaxseed for a nutty flavor.

 On Yogurt   - Flaxseed gives a nutty texture and flavor to a lunchtime bowl of yogurt, with fruit.

 On Oatmeal  - Sprinkle flax seeds in your homemade oatmeal for a little extra texture and flavor.

 As an Egg Substitute  - Flaxseeds mixed with water can also be used as a vegan egg substitute in baking. When mixing flaxseed with water, use one tablespoon of flaxseed to three tablespoons of water, and whisk them together until they form a jelly-like substance. 

 

Health Benefits of Flaxseed

 High in Fibre  - One of the most extraordinary benefits of flax seeds is that they contain high levels of mucilage gum content. Mucilage is a gel-forming fibre that is water soluble and has incredible benefits on the intestinal tract. The mucilage can keep food in the stomach from emptying too quickly into the small intestine, which increases nutrient absorption. Also, flax is extremely high in both soluble and insoluble fibre which can support colon detoxification, fat loss and reduce sugar cravings. You should aim to consume 30-40 grams of high-fibre foods daily.

 Healthy Skin and Hair  - If you want healthier skin, hair and nails then consider adding two tablespoons of flaxseeds to your smoothie or cereal. The Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) fats in flax seeds benefit the skin and hair by providing essential fats and b-vitamins, which can help reduce dryness and flakiness. It can also improve symptoms of acne, rosacea, and eczema. This also applies to eye health as flax can reduce dry eye syndrome. 

 Weight Loss  - A study published in the Journal of Nutrition found that flaxseeds and walnuts may improve obesity and support weight loss. Since flax is full of healthy fats and fibre, it will help you feel satisfied longer so you will eat fewer calories overall which may lead to weight loss. ALA fats may also help reduce inflammation. This is important for weight loss in that an inflamed body will tend to hold on to excess weight. Add a couple of teaspoons of ground flaxseed to soups, salads, or smoothies as part of your weight loss plan.

 Lower Cholesterol  - The Journal of Nutrition and Metabolism found that adding flaxseeds into your diet can naturally reduce cholesterol levels. The soluble fibre content of flaxseed traps fat and cholesterol in the digestive system so that it unable to be absorbed. Soluble fibre also traps bile, which is made from cholesterol in the gallbladder. The bile is then excreted through the digestive system, forcing the body to make more, using up excess cholesterol in the blood and lowering cholesterol overall.

 Gluten-Free  - Using flax is a great way to naturally replace gluten-containing grains which are inflammatory where flax is anti-inflammatory. So, flaxseeds are great for those who have Celiac disease or have a gluten-sensitivity. They may also be a good alternative to omega-3 fats in fish for people with a seafood allergy. Another great aspect of flax being gluten-free is that it can be used as a grain-free option in cooking. I will often use it along with coconut flour in baking at home.

 High in Antioxidants  - Amongst its other incredible nutrition facts, flaxseeds are also packed with antioxidants. Lignans are unique fibre-related polyphenols that provide us with antioxidant benefits for anti-aging, hormone balance, and cellular health. Polyphenols support the growth of probiotics in the gut and may also help eliminate yeast and candida in the body. Lignans are also known for their anti-viral and antibacterial properties. Therefore, consuming flax regularly may help reduce the severity of cold and flu symptoms.

 Digestive Health  - Maybe the biggest flaxseed benefits come from its ability to promote digestive health. The ALA in flax can help protect the lining of the digestive tract and maintain gastrointestinal health. It has been shown to be beneficial for people suffering from Crohn’s disease or other digestive ailments, as it can help reduce gut inflammation. Flax is also very high in soluble and insoluble fibre which can also improve digestive health and is one of the highest magnesium foods in the world. Two tablespoons of flaxseeds contain about 5 grams of fibre, 25% of the required daily amount. The fibre found in flaxseeds provides food for friendly bacteria in your colon that can help cleanse waste from your system.

 Reduces Cancer Risk  - Flaxseed benefits have been proven time and time again and even including fighting breast, prostate, ovarian and colon cancer. A study published in the Journal of Clinical Cancer Research discovered that consuming flax seeds may decrease the risk of breast cancer. The three lignans found in flaxseeds can be converted by intestinal bacteria into enterolactone and enterodiol which naturally balance hormones which may be the reason flax seeds reduce the risk of breast cancer.

 High in Omega-3 Fatty Acids  - We hear a lot about the health benefits of fish oil or omega-3 fats. Fish oil contains EPA and DHA, two omega-3 fats that are critical for optimal health. Although flaxseeds do not contain EPA or DHA, they do contain ALA, another type of omega-3 fat. A study published in Nutrition Reviews has shown that approximately 20% of ALA can be converted into EPA, but only .5% of ALA is converted into DHA. Also, surprisingly gender may play a big role in conversion where young women had a 2.5-fold greater rate than men. Regardless of conversion, ALA is still considered a healthy fat and should be included in a balanced diet.

 Menopausal Symptoms  - The lignans in the flax have been shown to have benefits for menopausal women. It can be used as an alternative to hormone replacement therapy because lignans do have estrogenic properties. These properties may also help reduce the risk of osteoporosis. It can even help menstruating women by helping maintain cycle regularity. To experience the flax seed benefits for your hormones include 1-2 tbsp of flax meal in a breakfast smoothie.
