DescriptionFlaxseed is one of the best ways to prevent cardiovascular disease. Ancient small seeds are low in saturated and trans fats and rich in monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats.
Omega-3 contained in flaxseed / about 55-60% of fat / helps the body with its anti-inflammatory action, normalizes heart rate, prevents hardening of the arteries and blood clots, thus reducing the risk of heart attack and stroke in patients with diabetes and heart disease.
The presence of Omega-3 and Amygdalin in flaxseed has been found to kill certain types of cancer cells (especially colon, prostate and breast cancer).
In addition, flaxseed improves calcium absorption - it is good to combine with foods rich in calcium such as fish and legumes, tofu, various types of cabbage (plain, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower). Many people pay attention only to eating calcium-rich foods, not knowing that it is just as important that the calcium they eat is absorbed by the body. We often combine foods rich in calcium with foods that interfere with the body's absorption of calcium, which destroys the desire for a healthy diet and increases calcium.
