So what makes flaxseeds so great? First and foremost, these seeds contain insoluble fiber, which dissolves in water and slows down the digestion process. Not only does this help you to feel satisfied for a long time, it also helps maintain healthy blood sugar levels. *
Flaxseed is a source of omega-3 fatty acids known to promote healthy memory, provide anti-inflammatory action to the body, and support healthy blood pressure. Not to mention, it is deeply rooted in the Ayurvedic tradition as an immunity supporter. *
The vitamins and minerals in flaxseed should not be overlooked and Hyman notes that they are a great source of thiamine and magnesium. Thiamine, otherwise known as Vitamin B1, has many great benefits, from energy to digestive aids. * For magnesium? This mineral supports muscle and nerve function and even helps you get a good night’s sleep. *
