Note the Intake: A normal daily intake of  flax seeds should be 2 tablespoons (per 100 pounds of  body weight), which is about 20 grams and shockingly only 90 calories. So if you weigh 150 pounds you may eat 3 full tablespoons. If you are 180 pounds then you may use about 3.5 – 4 full tablespoons of ground flax seed.

Flax seeds help you in losing weight

Flax seed is an excellent ingredient to your daily diet list, if you are looking forward to lose weight. The high fiber content present in flax makes it heavier as it soaks the fluids, adding to the quantity that keeps the stomach filled for a long time. It helps to stop cravings and over-eating.  They have good fats such as poly-unsaturated fats, and mono-saturated fats, omega 3 fatty acids.

Healthy hair and skin

The omega 3 fatty acids treats skin issues such as acne, allergies and sun burns. It even rejuvenates the skin and regenerates the tone. Yous skin becomes smooth and glowing.  Moreover, it is ideal to treat hair fall, dryness, scalp troubles, dandruff, brittle hair and makes the hair follicles stronger, healthy and beautiful.

Controls Hormonal Imbalance

The antioxidant property in the flax seed decreases the symptoms of hormonal imbalance, hot flashes and night sweat in post-menopausal stage. Studies has also shown that a day-to-day intake of about 40 grams or 2 table spoons of ground flax seed could help you improving the hormonal problems and psychological health as well.

Controls Diabetes

The lignans that are present in Flax seeds react effectively by keeping Type 2 Diabetes under control. Research shows that a daily consumption of flax constructs the insulin sensitivity to people who are allergic to glucose. This is because of the dense level of soluble fibers in flax. Devouring one table spoon of ground flax seeds for a month improves fasting blood sugar levels.
