Why Should You Eat Flaxseed? | Healthy Food

You might want to start including more flax
seeds in your diet, because we are missing those great Omega 3 fatty acids from our diets,
and flax seeds are a great source. Now we need those Omega-3 fatty acids because
they provide incredible protection for our brain cells, they also are anti-inflammatory. We need a proper ratio of Omega-3s, Omega-6s,
and Omega-9s in our diets, and we need more Omega-3s. Flax seeds are a great way to get it, they're
inexpensive and they're easy to use. Flax seeds also provide a lot of fiber, which
we are also missing from our diet. Most people only get half the daily fiber
that they should be getting to help clean out our intestines, and keep our digestive
system healthy and running smoothly. Now, there are three main mistakes that people
make when consuming flax seeds. The first is that they need to be ground. You don't get the access to your Omega-3 oils
in the flax seeds unless they are ground up. So either pulse them in a blender or use a
little spice grinder or even a coffee mill to grind up the flax seeds before you put
them in a recipe or sprinkle them on top of your food. The other mistake people make is by not keeping
their flax seed in the refrigerator. They need to stay cool, and they need to be
protected from light. So keep them in a dark bottle in the refrigerator
to protect those very delicate Omega-3 oils. The other mistake is that we shouldn't heat
our Omega-3 rich oils like flax because they are very delicate and heat destroys the benefits.
