What is Flaxseed?

By Merab Inyika September 19, 2019

What Is Flaxseed

Flaxseed comes from the flax plant (also known as Linum usitatissimum), which grows to be about 2 feet tall. Flax was first grown in Egypt, but is now being cultivated around the world.

Its nutty-tasting seeds can be consumed on their own or crushed and cold-pressed to produce flaxseed oil. Flax has a number of health benefits and can be used either as a supplement or as an ingredient that is added to a variety of recipes.

Flaxseed and flaxseed oil contain a high amount of protein and has been linked to several health benefits, read on:

  • Digestion:Flaxseed is a miracle worker when it comes to digestive issues like constipation, because of its high-fiber content.  
  • Lowering cholesterol levels:Flaxseed’s been linked to lowering levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL, or “bad”) cholesterol, which means it  helps prevent issues related with heart health  such as heart disease and   
  • Manage some cancers:Flaxseed has possible anticancer compounds called lignans, which are polyphones that can help manage certain types of cancer, including breast cancer.
  • Weight management:Flax can be great for weight management because it’s high fibre content, which keeps you full for longer.
  • Improving insulin sensitivity: Insulin resistance, or an inability to effectively use the hormone insulin to ferry glucose to cells, is the hallmark of type 2 diabetes, and some research suggests flaxseed oil may help with this problem.
