Using Flaxseed To Lose Weight And Improve Heart Health

Flax seed may be heart healthy because of the high concentration of omega 3 fatty acids and fiber. People who try to lose weight (especially abdominal fat) may find that the high fiber in flaxseed may enhance weight loss. But you must ensure that you use linseed appropriate to get the greatest benefit. Flaxseed may help reduce cholesterol levels, triglyceride levels, reduce inflammation, increase blood sugar levels, prevent platelet aggregation, reduce hot flashes and facilitate weight loss.

You need:
whole flaxseeds

. A kind of grinder (like a coffee grinder).


Buying whole flaxseed whenever possible (longer life and greater heart health benefits).

When adding fiber to your diet, you should start slowly and gradually increase the amount. Start by having half teaspoon of flaxseed daily for about a week and then gradually increase the amount until you have 1 to 2 tablespoons of flaxseed daily.

If you have purchased whole linseed take desired amount and place in the coffee grinder for several seconds to ground into a fine powder. To get the highest concentration of omega 3 fatty acids-flax should be used within about 30 minutes of grinding. If you purchased flaxseed already ground, you will not get a high concentration of omega 3 fatty acids, but will still benefit from the high fiber content.
