A famous plant that lowers cholesterol, stops clogging of the arteries and protects against heart disease

Research has revealed that flaxseeds may be among the best foods to stop clogged arteries, and a study has shown that it reduces plaque formation by 40%.

Flaxseeds are a small nutritional powerhouse that provides a wealth of healthy fats, vitamins and minerals, and the seeds and their oil (extracted from the ground seeds) share many of the healthy properties that have been shown to be beneficial in preventing chronic disease.

One of its main components, SDG lignan, is an anti-inflammatory, and cholesterol polyphenols are known to counteract the effects of atherosclerosis, according to the Express.

The researchers demonstrated a sharp reduction in plaque formation in rodents that consumed the seeds, noting: “Dietary flaxseed is a valuable strategy for accelerating the regression of atherosclerotic plaques.”

There is reliable evidence that these seeds may reduce cholesterol levels and plaque formation, but there is little evidence that they protect against heart disease.

These tiny golden seeds are known to be the richest natural source of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), which can help maintain a healthy heart rhythm and ward off disease.

Ground flaxseed – but not flaxseed oil – may also help treat menopausal symptoms, and has been shown in some research to improve kidney function in people with lupus, and it may also be effective against constipation, diabetes, high blood pressure, and animal pain. Although more research is needed to confirm this.
