Some of the things I put it in are: Bread, muffins, cookies and granola. If you use it in huge amounts you can substitute some flax for a little flour in pretty much anything. Some people eat it raw sprinkled over oatmeal or in their smoothies.
Flax is rich in alpha linolenic acid which is an omega 3 fat. That helps with:
- Making it Anti-inflammatory which can help with asthma, osteo arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, migraine headaches and osteoporosis.
- Protecting Bone health
- Protecting against Heart Disease, Cancer and Diabetes.
- Preventing and controlling high blood pressure.
Other ways flax can help your health are:
- Reducing hot flashes (in studies it reduced them over 50%!)
- It is rich in beneficial fiber which fights constipation.
- It helps to get rid of the "Blues".
All said, Flax definitely works for me!!
Do you use flax? What do you like about it or how do you like to use it?
