A seed that, 6,000 years ago, the Egyptians have cultivated it, because its oil was used, including, to embalm the mummies and their gods.
It seems that seed birdseed enough to feed birds.
There are two types of flaxseed: the brown, the most common and golden.
It prevents the following cancers:
Breast, prostate, colon, lung etc.. The flaxseed contains 27 anti-cancer components, one of them is the Lignin.
The main beneficial effects in the body are:
Cardiovascular System is ideal for treating atherosclerosis by removing cholesterol in the arteries attached, multiple sclerosis, coronary thrombosis, high blood pressure, cardiac arrhythmia, increases the platelets to prevent blood clots. Excellent to fight bad cholesterol, called LDL Its regular use reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease. A unique feature of flaxseed is that it contains a substance called tagladina, which regulates blood pressure and arterial function and plays an important role in calcium metabolism and energy. Dr. JH Vane won the Nobel prize for medicine in 1962 for discovering the metabolism of essential oils Omega 3 and
Nervous System: regular consumption of flaxseed, radically reduces nerve pressure, giving, therefore, that feeling of relaxation. Improved the behavior of even the elders. Improves the level of neurotransmitters, especially serotonin, preventing depression. Improving as a result, even good humor, given that it improves the functioning and much of the intestine.
The brown is grown, including in
Experts say basically the golden brown and contains the same nutrients, ie, the "omega 3, 6 and 9," which are good oils that raise HDL, which is the good cholesterol. So, does very well to the cardiovascular system.
I confess to you that flaxseed consumption for some time. Indeed, improves bowel function, lowers blood pressure (hypertension Am) and improvement, including the quality of sleep, because it improves the level of neurotransmitters, especially serotonin, the so-called hormone that regulates well-being and sleep.
In terms of taste, the gold is more palatable than the brown. But as usually I use the low-fat yogurt (almost every day before bed, I take a low-fat yogurt with a teaspoon of flaxseed powder), nor can notice the difference.
Caution: flaxseed should not be consumed excessively. A tablespoon at most per day. Can be added to juices, vitamins or even yogurt.
There are capsules of flaxseed oil. But, beware, because there are many scams out there. The best thing I recommend is to buy it "fresh", hit well in the blender to powder. Then place it in glass (plastic bag leaves taste) and refrigerate.
Reportedly, the "celebrities" of body and soul immersed in the wonders of flax!
Actually improves the skin up, on the basis that the whole gut works and you're more beautiful!
In my thesis I call the homeostatic balance of personality (http://recantodasletras.uol.com.br/cronicas/392760) is nothing more than developing the whole personality in its dimensions: Spiritual, Physical and Emotional!.
Since the main factor to be developed is the spirituality. You being at peace with God, his conscience and with others, you're happy!
The remaining two factors come together. Healthy lifestyle, basically vegetarian, doing regular exercise (a good walk 1 hour p.dia enough), swimming, etc..
In doing so, you neutralize the action of cortisols (adrenaline and noradrenaline) which are stress hormones, which cause so much havoc in the body, when inflated in the bloodstream).
Can I give my testimony. My thesis works!
I'm getting this level of balance with the struggle of many years!
But do not forget to put God first in your life!. If you do this, you will reap wonderful fruits and healthy throughout their lives!
Be happy, using what nature gives us so warmly!
