For thousands of years, people have recognized the nutritional value of flaxseeds and flaxseed oil. Consuming flax and flax products can improve one’s omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acid ratio while promoting regularity, lowering blood cholesterol and improving immune function. Also, adding flax to the diet regularly may help prevent or improve chronic diseases in which inflammation may plays a role, such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, cancer and obesity.
Flax is a rich source of lignans, a type of nutrient that is now being studied for its potential health benefits for both men and women. Lignans are of special interest because of recent scientific studies into their potential anti-cancer properties, especially breast, prostate and colon cancer. One type of flax lignan, known to have health-promoting qualities, is called secoisolariciresinol diglycoside or SDG.
