Whole grain foods contain nutrients that appear to reduce the risk of type two diabetes, colon cancer and stroke. The folic acid, plant based protein and fiber in whole grains are beneficial to long-term health. Soluble fiber lowers LDL (bad) cholesterol, triglycerides and blood pressure. And because whole grain foods are a complex carbohydrate, they help regulate blood sugar levels. The Benefits of Flaxseed: The current research on the potential health benefits of flax has been encouraging. Flaxseeds are the richest source of lignans, which may have anti-oxidant properties (reducing the activity of cell-damaging free radicals) and anti-cancer properties. As a type of fiber, lignans are also a type of phytoestrogen - a chemical similar to the human hormone estrogen. During the digestive process, the human body converts lignans into enterodiol and enterolactone, which are thought to have anti-tumor effects. In addition to lignans, flaxseeds are also the best food source of alpha-linolenic acid, an essential fatty acid. Essential fatty acids are crucial for cell membranes, blood pressure regulation, and other functions. Alpha-linoleic acid is an omega-3, which may reduce blood clotting and reduce the chance of fatal heart attacks. Studies have linked a high intake of alpha-linolenic acid with a reduced risk of heart disease and/or death from heart disease. Studies have also indicated that flaxseeds can lower total blood cholesterol, as well as LDL (bad) cholesterol, which significantly reduces the risk of heart disease. With the benefits of whole grain and flaxseed, Bella Terra 100% Whole Grain Pasta with Milled Flaxseed can play an integral part of every health conscious person's diet.
