Golden flax seed is your best plant source of ALA (alpha-linolenic acid) or Omega3 fatty acid. The restorative and preventative benefits of golden flax in your diet are many, including lowering cholesterol levels and blood pressure. The Omega3 fatty acids act as natural anticoagulants, which make red blood cells more flexible, causing less blockage and clots, and thus decreasing the risk of heart attack and stroke. We’ve all heard about the importance of Omega3 in our diets. Here is a very easy, economical and tasty way to incorporate it daily. Just a 1/4 cup contains a full 9 grams.
This seed also has a very high lignan (phytoestrogen) content. There is 800 times more of this antioxidant in golden flax seed than any other plant lignan. Researchers agree that the high lignan in golden flax helps to fight diseases and possibly reduce breast cancer risk as it seems to help balance estrogen levels. Menopausal symptoms can also be significantly reduced when golden flax is taken.
