Uses for Flaxseeds

Flaxseeds can be used to make tea, added to smoothies or for even consumed in baking or on cereal.  There are additional benefits for consuming flaxseeds whole. 

Known benefits of Flaxseeds

Flaxseed and flaxseed tea contain polyunsaturated omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, along with a group of natural compounds called lignans -- all compounds with biological activity. The results of many research studies suggest that a diet rich in flaxseed is heart-healthy, potentially helping lower levels of cholesterol in your blood and possibly reducing your risk of atherosclerosis and other types of cardiovascular disease.

Omega-3 fatty acids and lignans in flaxseed are both antioxidants that can help protect your cells and tissues from free radicals, which form during digestion, when you're exposed to toxins or in your skin when you're in sunlight. Over time, free radicals can damage cellular DNA, possibly raising your risk of cancer and other diseases.

Components in flaxseed tea might also help slow or reduce the rise in blood sugar that occurs after you eat, potentially lowering your risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. The study published in the "British Journal of Nutrition" in 2008 found that subjects who consumed flaxseed extract also had significantly reduced blood sugar, in addition to improved cholesterol levels, compared to controls.

The ALA fats in flax seeds benefits the skin and hair by providing essential fats as well as b-vitamins which can help reduce dryness and flakiness. It can also improve symptoms of acne, rosacea, and eczema. This also applies to the eyes health as flax can reduce dry eye syndrome.

The lignans in the flax have been shown to have benefits for menopausal women (menopause). It can be used as an alternative to hormone replacement therapy because lignans do have estrogenic properties.

Because some flaxseed compounds are phytoestrogens, which act in similar ways to estrogen, flaxseed tea might also help improve mild symptoms of menopause. A study in the September 2002 issue of "Obstetrics and Gynecology" found that menopausal women who consumed a flaxseed supplement for two months had improvement in symptoms comparable to that seen when women received hormone replacement therapy.
