Description
Because the typical American diet may not include a sufficient amount of essential fatty acids (EFAs) and the body cannot produce them on its own, it is vital that we include sources of these EFAs in our diets. Flaxseed and flaxseed oil are great sources of omega-3 fatty acids for anyone, especially vegans, vegetarians and those with specific food allergies. Flaxseed also contains beneficial phytochemicals called lignans, which support immune system health, and is a great source of dietary fiber (which helps protect the digestive system, lowers cholesterol and aids in weight loss). In this completely revised and updated booklet, learn how supplementing the diet with the omega-3s found in flaxseeds and flaxseed oil can promote cardiovascular health, help metabolize cholesterol and fats and combat autoimmune disorders like rheumatoid arthritis.
