Do you have clogged heart arteries or you suspect you do? or perhaps not, but you want to keep you heart arteries very clean?
If the answer to these questions was yes then you might want to carry on reading….
Ever since I found out I had clogged heart arteries I have looked for different ways to help unclog my system. Can you imagine at a tender age of 20 years feeling your heart arteries being blocked? well that was I found out 8 years ago.
For me this was a blessing in disguise because it has helped me learn more about the healthy ways of eating and most importantly ways to keep my heart and heart arteries very clean and healthy.
To achieve this feat of unclogging my arteries was no walk in the park.
This is because I tried many products, supplements and pills in the hope of recovering my heart health.
This process lead to me nearly endangering my health in some instances because of my naivety at the time.
I have since been wiser and now more knowledgeable about the good supplements the heart may benefit from. There has however been one supplement that has been with me and helped me throughout the years to give me heart health in the way of unclogging heart arteries and keeping my heart strong.
That supplement is the flaxseed oil capsules. I still use these supplements as they are good for the body and never give me problems.
In this article I will be talking about the health benefits of flaxseed oil capsule that helped save my life.
What are flaxseed oil capsules-essentials
Flaxseed oil capsules are derived from a flaxseed. This seed is derived from a plant called the flax.
This seed is known for many of its many desease-preventing abilities which I will be talking about.
It is also known as a power plant for food as it has a lot benefits for preventing many chronic conditions such as cancer and heart diseases.
This is because of the presence of omega 3 fatty acids which are known for their many benefits such as improving heart health, skin health and hair health just to name a few.
The omega 3 fatty acids are plant unsaturated fatty acids known as poly-unsatured fatty acids. These fatty acids can not be produced by the human body but they are very necessary for health of the body.
The flaxseed oil capsules have exactly the same benefits and constituents of its source seed, the flaxseed.
The fish oil already has ALA in it while flaxseed oil gets to be converted into ALA after being consumed in the body.
The other difference between flaxseed oil and fish oil is that the fish oil is made from animal while the flaxseed is made from plant.
If you want to increase your omega 3 in your body both these choices are good, however if you are a vegetarian the best choice would be to take the flaxseed oil.
The great aspect about flaxseed oil capsule is its ability of being able to be used in many of our daily foods.
Some of these foods may need a little searching or inspection on your part when you are going shopping as they are usually not in the aisles that normal people shop in.
However, there are still foods that you may have not known that use flaxseeds in them.
In this article I will talk about some of the food that contain flaxseeds that you probably use without knowing and some you may have never known.
Foods with Flaxseed oils
The consumption of these foods can have similar benefits to that of the flaxseed oil capsules depending on the dosages you take.
If you are considering using flaxseed oil capsule as supplements I would recommend that you use supplements that are certified which do not include other contaminants such as metals.
There are other reviews which suggest that the flaxseed oils should be stored under the fridge to give them the cooling effect. My suggestion would be to do as per the instruction on the bottle which say that you must store them in a cool dry place below 25’C and that works just perfect.
If you buy flaxseed oil capsule I advise that you get one that is organic and cold-pressed.
It is advice able to use capsules that have a transparent bottle as this will help the capsule with getting light and thus giving you the maximum benefits. This will also prevent oxidation.
I have noted that the type of bottle the flaxseed oil capsules are stored has a huge effect on aspects such as handling.
An example is when I tried to get my flaxseed oils when their was only about 3 left inside. Trying to get just one capsule took me more then 30 minutes (yes, I’m not even joking). This would some times seem as if I was in a war with the bottle.
To make things worse some times I would end up thinking there is nothing in the bottle. This was due to the opaque bottle (which made me not see what was inside) and secondly the heat the bottle had faced due to the wrong storage (this made the capsules stick to the bottle making it hard to retrieve it).
It is also my huge recommendation to consult your doctor before the usage of these capsules
Health benefits of flaxseed oil capsules are derived mainly from ALA which get converted to omega 3 fatty acids which has many health benefits that you can look to benefit from.
The following are the benefits that you may derive from these powerful seed capsules:
- Reduction of Eczema
Eczema is known as a skin condition whereby your skin becomes dry and red. This causes a lot of itchiness which in turn causes your skin to form blisters.
There are many ways that this skin disorder gets developed. Some of these ways are the food allergies you may be eating or the usage of certain perfume which may cause an allergic response.
There are many ways you can help fight off eczema such as the food you eat. This is because some foods may have the essential fats that can assist.
The flaxseed is a great choice for fighting of eczema because it has the essential fatty acids that assist with improving skin health.
- Reduction of cancer
Cancer is one of the most common disease out their and it is usually better to prevent it before it even happens.
Using flaxseed oil capsules can help prevent the cancer such as breast cancer.
According to research done and published in the Journal of Nutrition and cancer, in 2015, it was reported that the ALA which is found in flaxseed oil reduces beast cancer by causing a confusion on the process which causes cancer in the breast cells.
- Removal of cellulite
As we all age cellulite tends to catch up with us. This is because as you get old or your body fat distracts the stretching of your skin and your skin starts to loose its elasticity.
Most people find it very hard to get rid of cellulite in the skin… Well if you are one of those people flaxseed can be your savior.
This is because flaxseed oil helps with the strengthening of the collagen which then helps with elasticity of the skin.
- Assists with weight loss
Flaxseed oil is good in lubricating the colon in your intestines more quickly which helps with quick food digestion.
This process then causes your body to loose excess fat through fast as well.
- Relieves constipation
Since the flaxseed oil helps with the quick digestion of the food in the colon of the intestines it also acts as reliever of constipation.
- Good for heart health
This is one of the best substances when it comes to improving heart health. This is due to the omega 3 fatty acids in this supplement.
Omega 3 fatty acids found in fish, normally, improve heart health by cleaning the heart arteries or any blockages in the arteries in the body.
I have used this substance ever since I had noticed I had clogged arteries and the results have been very amazing.
This has made me incorporate this supplement in my daily life as a ritual not just because of the heart health but also for the other benefits such as skin health. (I mean why not kill two birds with one stone?)
Like any other product out their you will also derive negatives from the flaxseed oil.
I will expand on the negatives that I found while using this substance…..
The following are the disadvantages for using the flaxseeds:
It is advised that you do not use this supplement if you use certain medication such as blood thinning (aspirins).
This is because, this substance tends to get affected by these medications as these medications tend to do similar work to that of the flaxseed although these medications tend to be more deeper as they are actually chronic medication.
Some people may have allergies related to the flaxseed so it is wise to consult your doctor about the usage of you believe you might be one of those people.
Possible allergy could be Vomiting, nausea,itching and swelling. If you notice any of these that could be a sign of your an allergy to flaxeeds.
Flaxseed oil capsules can really be an all round supplement to your health when taken according to how I specified.
This is due to the versatile benefits this substance has, such as the disease it prevents or fights off. I have been using the flaxseed supplement as part of my life for the past 8 years and I can say confidently that my heart health (clogged arteries) recovered, thankfully.
I would also recommend you have a combination of flaxseed oil capsules with foods that are filled with flaxseed ingredients in them.
