Flax Seed is So Good For You

Flax seed is so good for you, it has fiber, Omega 3?s, and a nice fresh nutty taste. I put ground flax in everything. Pancakes, homemade bread, pasta sauce, anything baked, casseroles, smoothies, etc. Here is a poster with pictures of what it should look like, I store mine sealed in the freezer to keep it fresh. Happy eating!!

Flaxseed vs. Diabetes

A tablespoon of daily ground flax seeds for a month appears to improve fasting blood sugars, triglycerides, cholesterol, and hemoglobin A1c levels in diabetics.


Doctor’s Note

This video reminds me of the Prunes vs. Metamucil for Constipation one, or any of those talking about various foods that may control blood sugar (Amla Versus Diabetes), weight (Fat Burning Via Flavonoids), cholesterol (Dried Apples Versus Cholesterol), or sexual dysfunction (Watermelon as Treatment for Erectile Dysfunction). Yes, these foods may help, but why not get at the root of the problem and try to reverse the condition altogether with a healthier diet overall? That’s why I called my 2012 wrap-up Uprooting the Leading Causes of Death.

The two books I feature are the original classic from 2003, Defeating Diabetes co-authored by my favorite dietician, Brenda Davis, and then in 2007 and 2012, from two of my medical mentors, Dr. Neal Barnard’s Program To Reverse Diabetes Now and Dr. Joel Fuhrman’s The End of Diabetes. In fact Fuhrman’s book is so new it wasn’t even out when I recorded this video for my volume 12 DVD!

This is my third flax video of the year. See what it can do against prostate cancer in my last two Flaxseed vs. Prostate Cancer and Was It the Flaxseed, Fat Restriction, or Both?. Next, we move on to Flaxseeds For Sensitive Skin.
