What is Good about Taking Them?

You are probably wondering what makes taking fatty acids so good for your health. They actually provide many health benefits, such as reducing arthritis symptoms, cholesterol, depression etc. According to nutritionists, the direct source of essential fatty acids is seafood. However, in countries where large part of the population are vegans, such as India, a common replacement for these essential fats is flaxen seeds, or flaxseeds.

What is the Composition of Flaxseeds?

Flaxseeds or linseed are loaded with vitamins, fibers, minerals, and omega-3 fatty acids. However, their main component is lignin. This component contains plant estrogen as well as antioxidants. Flaxseeds contain up to 800 times more lignan in comparison to other plant foods.

These seeds have been used for centuries in healing purposes, particularly in preparing medicines. Apart from being beneficial for treating certain health conditions, flaxen seeds are known to provide benefit of a glowing hair as well as healthy, youthful skin.

As flaxseeds are concentrated source of fiber, they have potent anti-inflammatory properties. Today, almost all good beauty creams include plant estrogen and antioxidants in their ingredient list.

It is well-known fact that a woman`s hair is her crowning glory. Taking into consideration this fact, it is not surprising that when this crowning glory becomes replaced by tired strands, panics sets in. Flaxseeds are one of the best remedies for this problem.

In addition, if you want healthier and smoother skin, choose no other lotions or tonics. The fatty acids found in flaxseeds draw water into skin cells, keeping them hydrated. People who want to lose weight can also benefit from consumption of these seeds.
