Why you should eat flaxseeds As vegetation goes, the flax plant is pretty useful. People extract its fiber and use it to make many things, like bed linens and paper money. But there’s more—the.

They’re loaded with all sorts of benefits, ranging from heart health to better digestion. Flaxseeds are sold raw, ground, and often added to cereals and granolas for their nutty flavor and fiber content. Flaxseeds can also be used to create flaxseed oil, which is used in cooking as well for its health benefits. Because of their versatility and huge range of health benefits, flaxseeds are one of the most underrated superfoods out there.

In order to get all of the omega-3 fatty acids and fiber packed into the tiny flaxseeds, Hogan recommends buying them ground, cutting them up yourself, or putting them in a coffee grinder. But if you buy the flaxseeds ground, Hogan advises eating them as quickly as possible because of the seeds short shelf life. For a standard serving (3 tbsp) just consider the health benefits of flaxseed: More omega 3 than salmon High protein with 6g per serving High fiber with 32% of daily value Low carb at only 3% of daily value Moderate source of iron Gluten free Sugar free Cholesterol free Reduces cholesterol. The human body needs help accessing the nutrients in flaxseeds. If you eat them whole, your body will usually pass them undigested.

So, make sure you get ground flax, or flax meal, so you can access all of the healthy nutrients flax has to offer. If you only have the seeds, you can grind them up yourself by using a coffee grinder. More generally, people who eat flaxseed should: Avoid raw and unripe flaxseeds, as they may contain toxic compounds. Consume flaxseed ground and with plenty of.

But scientists are warning that eating too much flaxseed could cause cyanide poisoning. Also known as linseed, it is rich in fibre, omega-3 fatty acids and micronutrients, and in the current trend.

  • Very informative…hats off to the efforts put in making such a great video. Thanks a lot for sharing your knowledge…Subscribed your channel.

  • Make sure to grind up your flaxseed in a coffee grinder or small bender. If you eat it as is, most of the time it will just travel through your system without it being properly digested. When it does that, all the nutrients stay inside the seed and you won’t receive all the nutrients thats inside.

  • Ground Flax Seeds kinda have a gross taste, and it kinda reminds me of breast milk, but never the less its good for you. Just mix it with something that has a strong flavor, and you wont be able taste it.

  • My coffee grinder makes short work of flax seeds. It is great to have something so fresh every day. Thank you for posting this video!

  • Hey there, have you tried ” BellyFATtack “? Just search Google. On there you can get a valuable free video presentation by a longtime physician revealing the best way to lose unwanted fat. It helped Brenda to get rid of her belly fat. I hope it helps you also.

  • Feel free to add to your food after you’ve removed it from the heat. The food can be warm and not damage the Omega-3’s the we love flax for.

  • flax seeds will negatively affect your testosterone levels. If you consume it raw it
    will pass thru you. you must grind it first and consume in a short time

  • Is best to grind flax seeds than to buy them already grined since they oxidize fairly quick. a 20 dlls coffee grinder will work great in doing that in less than a minute.

  • Don’t buy already grinded flax seeds! I’m surprised as a nutritionist she doesn’t know it. You need to grind it yourself, the best with coffee grinder and it eat it right away, Pre grinded flax seeds have lost majority of nutrition.

  • great video. flax seeds have about 3 grams of fiber per tablespoon. https://www.google.com/webhp?sourceid=chrome-instant&ion=1&espv=2&ie=UTF-8#q=flax%20seeds%20nutrition%20facts
    i wish they had 8 lol

  • Open question: I know grinding fresh is best, but I just bought ground flax. How inferior is it, and it is at all toxic? I read that the oils can go rancid, but Bob’s organic has a “use by” date a year from now. Thanks for any & all info.

  • Dear mam
    i want to ask one thing im diabetic and i have taken these seeds and iam also using medicine to control blood sugar.After taking this regularly when my periods start then i have heavy blood flow that is not going to stop on 22nd day.kindly let me know is there any conection of heavy and long periods +blood sugar + fleex seeds+sugar medicine (diamivron m).

  • I don’t care how good they are for us. Keep those nasty little seeds away from me. Chia seeds too, while we’re on the subject. Stop sprinkling them so stealthily and liberally into all the products that I used to buy in the organic/natural foods section of my supermarket, but don’t anymore because they’re ruined with the inclusion of those disgusting little wannabe rodent droppings. Newsflash: When I bite into a slice of honest-to-goodness organic whole grain bread from a reputable, well known bakery, a gelatinous sensation is not something that I want to feel in my mouth. It’s wrong and I’m tired of getting slimed. If it takes two different foods to make up for the unlikely possibility that I’m subjecting myself to some sort of deficiency by shunning those demonic little seeds, I’ll gladly go the extra mile.

  • Love flax seeds, I also put them into my morning smoothie.  Ya really can’t taste em that way and to be honest i don’t mind the taste either lol.  Love the info about breast  cancer.  I am a type one diabetic and they help blood sugar spikes too.

  • That bag of ground flaxseed is toxic and should never be consumed. Flaxseeds should be bought whole and ground at home with a coffee grinder and consumed within 15 minutes MAX. Ground flaxseeds go rancid very quickly after they have been ground to a power.

  • Dadi ji kya mai ye apne 2 saal ke bacche ko khila Sakti hu mera baccha milk bhi nhi pita hai aur na fruit khata hai please dadi ji reply zaroor kare����������

  • eat this on oatmeal every day without fail, with cinnamon and touch of brown sugar AND unpasteurized blueberry honey. Sometimes a splash of milk over top as well and occasionally some blue berries on top….keeps me going all day and saves me munching on any other goodies until supper time…eat well people and enjoy your lives, I still feel good at 74 years old and hope to live a little longer…..have a good day to all out there!!!

  • But mam in seed cycling video u didn’t tell us to roast flax seed, now I m confused whether to roast or not.. As I am following seed cycling.. Plz reply mam..

  • Keep in mind that ground flaxe seeds lose their nutritional value after 15 to 20 minutes. It’s best to grind them as needed to get the full benefits.

  • Hey, will you please please tell me if i should wash my whole flax seeds with water after bringing from the store? Someone said that we cannot wash them with water…

  • It has made my vegetarian burritos less messy. Cut up tomatoes, jalapenos, olive oil, hot sauce, salsa, etc… Made my burritos drippy.

    If I mix the messy ingredients with refried beans and flax and stir well, no more drips.

  • She does fail to mention “enzyme inhibitors,” which prevents the absorption of nutrients. Sprouting your flax seeds and removing the phytic acid, would be a good choice.

  • I understood that when I grind it up it turn toxic in the body because of the oxidation process.,flax seed contains Linamarin and become toxic in the body, I need to understand better this. And it is true that we can’t consume flax seed for long periods of time?

  • Great finally an egg sub. I knew chia seeds could be used, but the price is way higher. This is good to know if a recipe calls for a lot of eggs in low carb meals. So glad I clicked on this video, Thanks!!

  • And how about absorption in the body…..this video do not mention black pepper/fat at all. Stay away from this advice folks!
    Watch dr. Eric Berg’s info about this ��

  • Wow, cutting edge stuff here. Thanks Mayo for a super job of educating us about health. By the way, word has it that cholesterol has never been shown to cause cardio-vascular disease, the omega 3 fatty acids in flax are converted at a rate of only 5 to 10% to the essential EPA and DHA forms so important to our health, and the benefits of fiber for moderating blood glucose spikes is secondary to the harmful role of eating carbohydrate foods in the first place. Super job.

  • you say flaxseed needs to be in the fridge but when I buy them at whole foods they are stored in a big barrel in the light. does that ruin them?

  • question I grounded mine but it still raw I use it in my oatmeal everyday now but I boil the grounded seeds in water before adding oatmeal n almond milk because I was told raw flaxseed is toxic. which is healthiest roast in pan before using it in my FOOD OR BOILING A GOOD option??

  • None of the flax seeds I see in the store are listed as unroasted and raw.  Someone said not to use the roasted because it is not as good for you.  Is the golden flax seed unroasted.

  • I don’t want to grind my flax seeds.  How do I get any good out of them without grinding?  Is there a way to soak them to a point that they will digest?

  • I use 3 tsp. ground chia seeds, 3 tsp. ground flax seeds and 3 tsp. psyllium husks mixed together with some water, and eat it quickly, because it’s pretty gross. I do this once or twice a day it makes you poop really well! xD You’re done in 10 seconds and almost no need for wiping afterwards.:P
