Ground Flaxseed, The Silent Healer

SLOAN LUCKIEYou can’t smell it. You can’t taste it. Depending on which foods you add it to, you can barely see it. Yet, your body reaps the healing and health benefits of it when consumed. It’s ground flaxseed.

Benefits of ground flaxseed
Here are just a few benefits of ground flaxseed:

Great source of fiber– fiber contributes to a feeling of fullness, reduces constipation and may contribute to lowering overall cholesterol.
Contains lignans– lignans are a chemical compound found in plants that act as free-radical fighting antioxidants.
Good source of Omega3– omega3s provide the body with “good” fatty acids. These “good” fatty acids may contribute to reducing heart disease, stroke and joint pain.

How to use ground flaxseed
Add 1-2 tablespoons of ground flaxseed to the following:

Cereal (See “Add Cereal To Your Fruit)
Oatmeal
Smoothie
Tomato sauce (used for spaghetti and similar meals)
Chili

I recommend ground flaxseed instead of whole flaxseed. Whole flaxseed can be more difficult to digest, making it more difficult for the body to receive all of the available nutrients. Ground flaxseed is easier for the body to digest.

Try ground flaxseed with your next meal. Your senses won’t detect it, but your body will reap its healing and health benefits.
