Eat Healthy With Flaxseed

It is amazing to walk through the grocery store and see so many flaxseed products on the shelves. Is flaxseed products really healthy and good for weight loss?

I could have selected snack bars, pancakes, cereals, muffins and trail mix, all boasting of their flaxseed content.

Benefits of flaxseed

Flaxseed products are good for heart health, including lowering cholesterol and triglycerides levels, reducing blood pressure, and decreasing platelet aggregation (clot forming). In addition, flaxseed is an excellent source of fiber.

Researchers have found that flaxseed is rich in alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), a polyunsaturated fat. It is this essential fatty acid that confers flaxseed's potential heart-healthy benefits and that is helping this ancient crop make an appearance beyond the local health food store.

Make sure to only consume a small amount as even though flaxseed is a healthy fat it is still high in calories.
