The Benefits of Flax Seeds

I just got into eating these. I heard that eating a few spoonfuls of flax seeds in your meals everyday will change your life. I don't know if that person was exaggerating, or if this food can really make an impact on your health like that. We'll see. Oh... and the taste isn't strong at all so you can top a lot of dishes off with these.  Check out some of the benefits:

  • Lowered blood cholesterol levels
  • Lowered high blood pressure
  • Increased energy, vitality, and stamina
  • Increased sense of calmness under stress
  • Reduced threat of blood clots
  • Protection against cancers, particularly hormone sensitive cancers such as breast and prostate
  • Better regulation of blood sugar levels
  • Eases inflammatory tissue conditions, including arthritis
  • Alleviation of dry skin, eczema and psoriasis
  • Enhanced immune system
  • Increased metabolic rate with a positive impact on weight management
  • Helps with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)
  • Natural laxative
  • And the list goes on
