flaxseed lowers cholesterol

Flaxseeds have a long history of improving heart health. Now the research has all been put together, and it proves it!



The research was put together in a meta-analysis of 62 controlled studies of 3,772 people. The results were convincing. Supplementing flaxseeds significantly reduced total cholesterol and the heart harmful LDL cholesterol. It also significantly reduced triglycerides.

The researchers say that this finding shows that taking flaxseed “could delay the progression of heart disease.”

Flaxseeds have also been shown to increase the effectiveness of cholesterol lowering medications like statins.
