Flaxseeds are good sources of many nutrients. Their health benefits are mainly due to their content of omega-3 fats, lignans and fiber. laxseeds are a rich source of the omega-3 fatty acid ALA. Plant-based ALA fatty acids are proven to have heart health benefits and are linked to a lower risk of stroke.

Flaxseeds contain a group of nutrients called lignans, which have powerful antioxidant and estrogen properties. They may help in preventing breast and prostate cancer, as well as other types of cancer. With so much fiber packed in each tiny seed, adding flaxseeds to your diet promotes regular bowel movements and can improve your digestive health.

The high fiber content of flaxseeds can help lower cholesterol and may play an important role in improving heart health. Flaxseeds have been proven to lower blood pressure and are especially helpful for those with high blood pressure. Flaxseeds are a good source of plant-based protein and can be an alternative protein source for people who do not eat meat.

Flaxseeds may lower blood sugar due to their insoluble fiber content. They can be a beneficial addition to the diet of people with diabetes. Flaxseeds keep you full for longer and may help you manage your weight by controlling your appetite.
