Benefits of omega 3s (flaxseeds)

Omega-3s are essential fats that we need to take into our diet as opposed to other fats that our bodies can make on their own.

Flaxseed is one of the richest plant sources of the omega-3 fatty acid, α-linolenic acid (ALA). These are what you’ll find in Collagen Mobility. These essential fatty acids are natural anti-inflammatories, which makes them beneficial for arthritis sufferers.

Flaxseed is a good source of insoluble and soluble fibre. Insoluble fibre helps improve bowel movements and prevent constipation, mainly by increasing faecal bulk and reducing bowel transit time. Water-soluble fibre helps in maintaining blood glucose levels and lowering blood cholesterol levels.

Flax contains up to 800 times more lignans than other plant foods. Flax lignans have shown promising effects in reducing the growth of cancerous tumours, especially hormone-sensitive ones such as those of the breast, endometrium and prostate.
