The Times of India: Flax seeds are good for weight management and protection against heart disease and cancer

Consumption of flax seeds has an anti-cancer effect and has a positive effect on the cardiovascular system.

Flax seeds have a wide range of beneficial properties, The Times of India reported. Indian experts have stated that flaxseed has a unique composition of active biological components. In particular, one of these components, lignans, have a pronounced antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effect, due to which they are able to slow down the growth and development of cancer cells.

Another substance in flax seeds is alpha-linolenic acid, which also has an anti-inflammatory effect action. This compound makes flax seeds useful in the prevention and treatment of diseases associated with inflammation (including heart disease, asthma or arthritis).

In addition, it is a very rich source of omega-3.

“Omega-3 fatty acids, which flax seeds are rich in, have long been known for their anti-cancer properties and positive effects on the cardiovascular system. These acids reduce inflammation and improve the condition of the arteries and contribute to the overall strengthening of the heart muscle,” experts said.
Doctors note that flax seeds not only improve protection against heart disease and cancer, but also help regulate weight. Despite their small size, they are rich in fiber, which normalizes digestion and creates long-term satiety, which allows you to eat less.
