Flax Seeds

Flax seeds contain high levels of lignans, plant compounds that may help reduce the risk of breast cancer. Lignans also appear to play a role in preventing prostate cancer.

They also contain omega 3 fatty acids, shown to reduce inflammation and improve heart health.
Flax seeds are also rich in fiber, protein, and other nutrients. These nutrients make a healthy addition to any diet.

Omega 3 Fatty Acids: These nutrients may help lower cholesterol levels and reduce inflammation.
They contain omega-3 fatty acids, which may help lower cholesterol levels. In fact, one study found that people who ate more than two servings of flax seeds per week had significantly lower total cholesterol levels compared with those who didn’t eat them at all. Another study found that eating flax seeds was associated with a significant reduction in triglycerides (a type of fat) in people with high blood pressure.

Fiber: This nutrient helps keep blood sugar levels steady.
They also contain fiber, which may help reduce the risk of colon cancer. A recent study found that women who consumed the highest amounts of dietary fiber were less likely to develop breast cancer.

Antioxidants: These nutrients may help protect against cardiovascular disease.
Lignans are phytoestrogens, plant compounds similar to estrogen. They may help prevent some cancers by reducing cell growth and inflammation. In addition, they contain antioxidants called alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), which may help protect against cardiovascular diseases. ALA has been shown to lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
