Only brown flax seeds, roasted and ground on a stone mill.
This is a ready-made solution for the consumption of flax, the richest plant source of Omega-3, Omega-6, lignin and fiber.
It is due to these components that flax seeds are so famous for their healing properties:
Flax seeds contain many nutrients and nutrients: proteins, vitamins A, E, F, group B, beta-carotene; minerals - zinc, iron, potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, calcium and others. However, the most valuable components are fatty acids, lignin and fiber. Thanks to them, flax seeds are so famous for their healing properties.
Without enough omega-3 fatty acids in the body, it is impossible to achieve the desired results in sports, whether in weight loss, or gaining muscle mass or increasing strength.
Omega-3 have a wide range of positive effects:
Increased insulin sensitivity due to slowing down the movement of food components in the gastrointestinal tract. Thus, carbohydrates are absorbed more slowly, without creating carcinogenic peaks that cause desensitization of insulin islands
Improving the rheological properties of blood by reducing viscosity, resulting in lower blood pressure, reduced risk of cardiovascular disease, blood clots, strokes and heart attacks
Increases overall tone and endurance.
Promotes weight loss by reducing appetite
Omega-3 is a precursor of prostaglandins - natural anti-inflammatory biologically active components of the blood. Prostaglandins relieve pain and inflammation, which are always accompanied by intense exercise. Thus, the destruction of muscle tissue after exercise is reduced, the time of its recovery is reduced.
Improve brain function, improve mood. 60% of brain matter is made up of fats and especially needs Omega-3 fatty acids to function properly.
Make the skin soft and velvety.
A healthy source of energy that does not pose a risk of increasing fat mass.
Enhance the production of hormones, including testosterone
Lignans are amazing substances in general. These are phytonutrients found in many plants, however, the shell of flax seeds proved to be their richest source. Flax seeds contain hundreds of times more lignans than other plants of which they are a part and these substances have high biological activity.
In addition to antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal action, lignans are distinguished by their antioxidant and anticancer properties - they can slow down the development of cancer cells. Lignans also strengthen the immune system and are very useful for women because they contain phytoestrogens: plant analogues of estrogen - a hormone that is so necessary for women throughout life.
Fiber in flax seeds
Flax seeds are high in fiber. The fact is that there are two types of fiber - soluble and insoluble and both types are necessary for our body.
Insoluble fiber: in the stomach it swells and, like a sponge, absorbs harmful bile acids and cholesterol, helping to eliminate them from the body and stimulate digestion.
Soluble fiber is converted in the stomach into something like jelly, filling it and causing a feeling of satiety.
