The Many Health Benefits of Ground Flax Seed

women from the onset of breast cancer. These studies have suggested that
phytoestrogens,which are naturally occurring compounds, work to bring down the
levels of circulating estrogens that have been linked to the formation of breast
cancer. High levels of lignan, one of these phytoestrogens, have been found to be
contained in ground flax seed. A study preformed on 30 postmenopausal women
over one year showed that the women that where given ground flax seed had a
significant drop in the cancer causing estrogens.

Ground flax seed has also proved to be successful in aiding the treatment of prostate
cancer. A study performed by health care professionals showed that prostate cancer
patients whose diets contained at least three large teaspoons of ground flax seed
experienced more significant decrease in the spread of cancerous tumors than those
who did not follow the regiment after about five weeks.

Another great health benefit of using ground flax seed is its ability to lower
cholesterol and the potential onset of heart disease. In addition to ground flax seed
containing lignan it also contains alpha linolenic acids which help to bring down the
cholesterol levels that can bring on heart problems. Usage of ground flax seed can
also help blood platelets from sticking together and causing a heart attack.

Tips for adding ground flax seed into your diet include the following.

You can add ground flax seed to your morning cereal or to just about any kind of
tossed salad.

There are many great recipes that can be found on the Internet specifically using
ground flax seed.
