FIBER – Flax has soluble and insoluble fiber. Soluble fiber can help your body control blood sugars and lower the cholesterol in your blood. Insoluble fiber keeps the contents of your gastrointestinal tract moving at a healthy rate! Fiber is filling! Healthy products with fiber will keep you full and satisfied until your next meal, curbing cravings for unhealthy snacks!
LIGNANS– are phytoestrogens, which may protect us against cancer, particularly breast and colon cancer.
ALA – ALA is one of your essential omega-3 fatty acids.
*Essential means your body doesn’t make this on its own, it needs products like ours to supply it!
OMEGA 3 FATTY ACIDS protect against heart disease and atherosclerosis because it lowers your LDL-cholesterol. (Which is the “bad” cholesterol that could build up in our bloodstream!)
OMEGA 3 FATTY ACIDS have recently been found to play a huge role in our brain development and function. Omega 3 supplements now say “For Heart and Brain Health” Exciting!!! In some studies, they are being used to treat, or prevent the onset, of mental health disorders. In fact, those with mood disorders need more omega-3 than others!
