Flaxseed is a dietary flaxseed (different from flaxseed for textiles), it is rich in Lignans plant hormones, Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, dietary fiber and plant protein. Medical research has proved that each of its natural nutrients has different health functions to the human body.
Lignans is a natural plant hormone and an antioxidant substance. Medical research proves that Lignans can reduce the incidence of cancer. American Institute of Cancer Research (AICR) flaxseed can inhibit the formation of colon cancer, breast cancer, skin cancer and lung cancer. The Flaxseed Council of Canada research pointed out that the Lignans and Omega-3 of flaxseed can strengthen our immune system. A study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that Lignans is beneficial in inhibiting obesity and diabetes.
Omega-3 Polyunsaturated Fatty Acid The Omega-3 contained in flaxseed is ALA (Alpha-linolenic Acid). ALA can effectively reduce bad cholesterol (LDL) and blood lipids in the body, increase the flexibility of blood vessels and prevent arteriosclerosis, which has great benefits for cardiovascular diseases. Omega-3 can also reduce inflammation. Western medicine has found that many human diseases are caused by the imbalance of the ratio of Omega-3 and Omega-6 in the human body. The United States, Canada, and the World Health Organization (WHO) recommend that the ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 should be maintained between 4:1 and 10:1. ALA will regenerate EPA and DHA in the human body. DHA is the main component of our brain, so many children's foods, including milk powder, are added with DHA.
Dietary Fiber Modern people's diet lacks fiber. Fiber allows us to have a healthy digestion and excretion system. It is medically proven that a high-fiber diet can effectively prevent cancer. Flaxseed contains highly soluble and insoluble fiber. Insoluble fiber can effectively reduce our constipation and increase bowel movement; soluble fiber can reduce blood sugar and effectively prevent and control diabetes. It can dissolve fiber and Lignans and control weight.
Plant protein Medical research has found that eating plant protein is good for some chronic diseases such as arteriosclerosis, certain cancers and kidney diseases. Replacing animal protein with plant protein has many benefits for the body. GL For You "Health Companion" is a balanced natural nutritious food that is easily absorbed by the body.
