Health Benefits of Flax Seeds and Flax Seed Oil
by Santosh SP Chhalotre
food outlets it is quite easy to find and buy flax seeds. But any one starting out on
them must remember to be moderate in the intake. It has come to light that too
much of the supplements could cause negative effects.

It is best to consult health practitioners as regards the amount to be taken regularly.
Also make sure you never take them whole. They have to be ground or taken as oil
supplements since the benefits of the grain are derived only when ground before
being added to food items. Otherwise they simply pass right out the digestive system.

And once you start including these seeds in your diet you will experience numerous
benefits in time that will include relief from constipation relief, clearing up acne,
smooth skin, muscle tone and fat burn. They are certainly good for the heart and
blood pressure and are said to also help with depression and arthritis.

Many people simply chew it up in its natural form. High in Omega 3 oils not produced
by the body on its own, you can buy supplements in the form of oil in gel form. Of
course the natural seed form is not only cheaper but wholly natural too.

You need to drink lots of water when using ground seeds as it soaks up water leading
to constipation. Also never heat them as this may cause chemical breakdown in
seeds to create carcinogenic by-products. You should just grind the seeds to make
into a powder. Eat the powder or add it to smoothies, juices or on cereals. It's even
tasty when sprinkled onto salad.

Since our bodies do not produce their own Omega 3 fats we need to get it from our
diet. Flax seed oil capsules are high in Omega 3 polyunsaturated fatty acid which
when it passes through the digestive tract in human bodies, breaks down existing
cholesterol and deposits a thin barrier to prevent its reformation.
