We sent out a small questionnaire last year, and many who replied suggested we should have health products focused articles here on LEN. I sent out some requests for contributions, and sadly few replied. No doubting the C19 situation has affected many people who feel there is little point in contributing to self-promotion. For some years, I have contributed to my income by writing ‘researched articles’. When a journalist or business asks for copy about a specific subject, the resulting article is published in their name or on the company website. With few replies from the emails, I have chosen to write weekly articles on well-being products. Some will be products used by myself daily. This article is the first of the well-being product submission. I have also added Amazon links for readers to search for prices and supplies. The links are connected to reputable product suppliers and the best prices I could find on the internet.

Today’s product is Ground Flaxseed:

I have used Ground Flaxseed in my daily diet for many years. I read about Ground Flaxseed’s benefits in an article written by Dr Mercola, a reputable online source of health and well-being information. My health was not too good, and I blame interest in raw foods and food supplements. This research’s legacy is the use of the NutriBullett (more on Nutribullett tomorrow) fruit and vegetable processor and the benefits of raw food. I am not a vegetarian, although fish and meat are no longer a priority ingredient.

The ‘stand out’ statement written by Dr Mercola was ‘Ground Flaxseed contribute to cell regrowth and repair of damaged tendons’. There is no empirical evidence to suggest this information is accurate; however, at the time I’d damaged my knee and decided ‘anything was worth a try’. Of course, there is no certainty that Ground Flaxseed’s daily tablespoon help with recovery, but I’d had issues with recovery for some months. Within three weeks of using Ground Flaxseed, the knee recovered.

Interestingly, my gut health and digestion (a common reason for making Ground Flaxseed part of the daily diet) improved. Like many people who take supplements, Ground Flaxseed stopped being part of my daily diet after a year or so. Two years ago, I was diagnosed as being in pre-diabetic status. And fortunately (for me) a timely warning, because pre-diabetic status is the one time we can turn diabetes around. The solution is simple: lower weight as quickly as possible. As part of my research, Ground Flaxseed came back into the picture and has become a daily addition to my diet. Incidentally, my blood sugar levels are normal, and I am no longer in pre-diabetic status. Wheather Ground Flaxseed has a contributory factor is explored in this article. One certainty is I find Ground Flaxseed a beneficial supplement.

About Ground Flaxseed:

Some people believe Ground Flaxseed is one of the finest supplements on the planet! Research suggests that daily consumption can help with many diseases: lowering blood sugar levels and rebuilding cells is worthy of internet research.

The is no doubt Ground Flaxseed is beneficial to gut health. Dieticians recommend Ground Flaxseed as an aid to digestive and bowel issues. The reason being Ground Flaxseed has a high fibre content which is recognised as beneficial to digestion. It is essential to drink plenty of water when consuming Ground Flaxseed. And start the regime with only a heaped teaspoon on cereals or in the blender when first using.

Ground Flaxseed Contains:

Although flaxseed contains all sorts of healthy components, it owes its primary healthy reputation to three of them:

  • Omega-3 essential fatty acids, ‘good’ fats are shown to encourage heart-healthy effects. A tablespoon of ground flaxseed contains approx 1.95 grams of plant omega-3s.
  • Lignans contain both plant estrogen and antioxidant qualities. Flaxseed contains approx 80 times more lignans than other plant foods. Preliminary research suggests that daily intake of the lignans in flaxseed may modestly improve blood sugar and help with pre-diabetic status.
  • Flaxseed contains both the soluble and insoluble types of fibre.

Dieticians have studied the benefits of Ground Flaxseed concerning hardening of the arteries and cholesterol problems. Omega-3 is recognised as reducing atherosclerotic plaque buildup by as much as 60% over 18 months, and during studies, researchers noticed patients with irregular heartbeats encountered better heartbeat stability. Ground Flaxseed is rich in omega-3 essential fatty acids: the relationship between the cardiovascular benefits and Ground Flaxseed is easy to understand.

The How of Ground Ground Flaxseed:

Milled or Ground Flaxseed are the same product. And only buy ground flaxseed, not the unground seed. The stomach will not digest the grains, and they may irritate the bowel and intestine. Ground Flaxseed does not cause this issue, and the omega-3 acid is quickly dispersed. Ground Flaxseed has an oily constitution. It is not linseed oil do not make the mistake of considering linseed old as an alternative. Ground Flaxseed provides the roughage which is part of its magic.
