A FANTASTIC LAXATIVE
Various synthetic laxative products promise to put an end to constipation, but Flaxseed – this millennia-old botanical remedy – has real and natural advantages.
Flaxseed is nature’s preferred health remedy for Constipation!
The tiny, golden-brown seeds of the flax plant are very effective at getting things moving again. They’re very high in fiber, in particular rich in insoluble fiber, which provides bulk and in turn stretches the intestinal walls, triggering contractions and bowel movements. They also contain a soluble fiber called mucilage, which binds with water to create a gel that keeps movements soft. Flaxseed is wit hout a doubt a great tool to add to your home remedies list.
What else can Flaxseed do?
Fixing constipation is only one of the benefits of flax. In ancient times, it was grown for clothing, as well as for food and as medicine. In addition to treating constipation, flax was traditionally used as a natural health remedy to treat coughs, colds and skin irritations. Flaxseed is also rich in good-for-you omega-3 fatty acids and in beneficial plant compounds called lignans. Research suggests that these may play a role in reducing risk for heart disease, brittle bones (osteoporosis) and putting the brakes on growth of breast, prostate and skin cancers.
To use Flaxseed as a Laxative
Mix 12 grams of ground flax (1.5 tablespoons) into 150 millilitres (5 fluid ounces) of water, milk or fruit juice, and drink.
HEALTH BENEFITS OF RAW BROWN FLAX SEEDS
Flaxseeds have been consumed as food for around 6,000 years and may have very well been the worlds first cultivated superfood. Another unique fact about flaxseeds is that they rank #1 source of lignans in human diets. Flaxseeds contain about 7 times as many lignans as the closest runner-up, sesame seeds.
High in Fiber, but Low in Carbs
- One of the most extraordinary benefits of flaxseeds is that they contain high levels of mucilage gum content. Mucilage is a gel-forming fiber that is water soluble and has incredible benefits on the intestinal tract.
- The mucilage can keep food in the stomach from emptying too quickly into the small intestine which can increase nutrient absorption.
- Raw brown flax seeds are an extremely high in both soluble and insoluble fiber, which can support colon detoxification, fat loss and reduce sugar cravings.
- You should aim to consume 30-40 g of high fiber foods daily.
STORAGE OF GERBS
Best Ever! Allergy-free foods that we can all eat is really important. However, that alone wouldn't say enough, so I'll continue this rave review and include that fabulous seeds themselves. I use them primarily for my bread, so far. They keep really well, and are easy to store. Perfect food for the bug-out bag.
Love Gerb's mission to provide these products to those suffering from allergies. I've been adding a tbsp of flax seeds to my smoothies and love that I'm able to boost fiber and good fat in my diet!
These are great for smoothies and to add fiber to my diet. I use my nutribullet to grind them fresh every day and get the most antioxidants benefit I can. I am so relieved to feel safe eating seeds and knowing there are no nut particles in them.
