A recent study proved that flax seeds may be a natural way to lower your blood pressure. Participants of the study who consumed up to 30 grams of flax seeds each day for six months lowered their systolic blood pressure by an average of 15 points, while their diastolic readings reduced by seven points. Flax seeds are natural sources of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), which help reduce your risk of heart disease by reducing inflammation and supporting your cells.*
Grinding up your flax seeds is important if you want your body to properly absorb their nutrients. Blend flax seeds into a smoothie, or grind and combine them with a salad dressing for a boost to your next snack or meal!
