#15 – Flax seeds
Flax seeds have been known for ages for their incredible health benefits. The amazing health benefits of flax seeds come from the high content of insoluble fiber contained in them. One portion of insoluble fibers contained in flax seeds contains a special group of chemicals called lignans.
Those special chemicals called lignans contained in flax seeds decrease the risk of having a heart attack and they stabilize blood sugar. Flax seeds also have properties that improve our sensitivity to insulin. Keep in mind that our bodies can’t process whole flax seeds so you will have to grind flax seeds by yourself and consume them ground.
