The benefits of flax seeds:
Flax seeds are not widespread enough in our dietary habits and yet they contain many excellent virtues for the health of the whole body. To consume every day!
Flaxseeds are excellent for our health and moreover… they are delicious! There are nearly 200 species of flax, almost all of them wild. For our diet, we must choose between brown flax and light flax. Here are some of its many benefits.
For gluten-free diets:
Flax does not contain gluten. So for people who are allergic or intolerant to the gluten present in many foods containing wheat, you can trust flax. As long as you eat it crushed, ground or ground to assimilate all its benefits. A pepper or coffee grinder will do the trick. In fact, the whole seed has a bark that is very difficult – if not impossible – for the body to digest. It would then be rejected. What a pity!
Flax seeds are a source of vitamins:
Some call it the super seed! It improves the cardiovascular and digestive systems, prevents certain cancers, reduces osteoarthritis and menopausal ailments. And that’s not all. Flaxseed is also a valuable source of minerals, essential fatty acids and vitamins such as vitamin E, an antioxidant that is beneficial for mucous membrane and skin cells. Flaxseed also contains vitamin B2, B3, thiamine (B1) essential for the metabolism of carbohydrates and vitamins B5 and B6.
The seed that helps you lose weight:
Do you want to lose weight without spending a fortune on products that are far from natural? Flaxseed can be a good ally. It is indeed a fat-burning food. It gives an impression of satiety because of its dietary fiber. You eat less and your body demands less sugar. You can also choose to incorporate your daily intake into yogurt, cereal, eggs or salads. Be consistent. Stick to this diet for two months, then allow three to four weeks to pass before starting again. Don’t let it keep you from exercising and eating a balanced diet.
Flaxseed is an anti-constipation:
Flaxseed contains a lot of fiber, so it is an effective natural treatment for constipation. By drinking this mixture of 10 grams of ground or coarsely crushed seeds mixed with water (150 ml) and drink it all. Repeat two to three times a day. After two or three days, the constipation will diminish. However, be careful if you have diverticula or if you suffer from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS): this could cause inflammation due to the insoluble fibers contained in the seed.
