Flaxseed is one of the richest source of omega 3 fatty acids and fibers. Fibers are good for maintaining normal level of cholesterol thus preventing heart attacks and strokes. Omega 3 fatty acids are also great for preventing the formation of blood clots which can cause heart attack or stroke. These acids are also helpful in reducing triglycerides and the cholesterol level.
Many people nowadays have problems with their high cholesterol level. There are many cases where people used flaxseed in their diet to reduce their high cholesterol levels. One such case was Jim who had problems with high cholesterol level and he wanted to try using natural remedies instead of prescribed remedies. So he started consuming ¼ cup of freshly ground flaxseed before his main meal once a day. His cholesterol level was reduced to 232 after 15 days and after 6 months to 188. His skin, energy, vision and hair improved as well, and he lost 33 pounds.
So why don’t you try this remedy and start consuming ¼ of freshly ground flaxseed every day?
Don’t use pre-grounded seed or flax oil since it can quickly become stale. Try using whole flaxseed and grind it into a coffee grinder or blender for 5 seconds. It is more effective that way. Also you can combine flaxseed with yogurt, honey or any kind of freshly squeezed juice to add some flavor and have a perfect morning meal.
