Not new but please pay attention: flaxseed effectively reduces blood pressure more effective than most drugs – without any side effects לא חדש אבל בבקשה לשים לב: פשתן מפחיתה לחץ דם יעיל יותר מאשר רוב התרופות – ללא כל תופעות לוואי

Please always use freshly grounded flaxseed!! Buy organic seed , never use the oil internally!

According to a recent article published in the journal Hypertension, the number one worldwide reason for visiting a doctor is high blood pressure. And the only resource most doctors feel they have is to put the patient on dangerous blood pressure drugs for life. However, researchers from Canada discovered that a well-known seed, found in all supermarkets and health food stores, lowers blood pressure by more than 15 points. This is more effective than most drugs – without any side effects

A recent study conducted by Canadian researchers reveals that flaxseed effectively reduces blood pressure. The study trial involved 110 individuals diagnosed with peripheral artery disease (plaque build-up in the arteries in the lower legs) and suffering high blood pressure. Study participants were divided into two groups. One group was instructed to consume a variety of foods that also contained about 30 grams (about one ounce) of milled flaxseed.The other group was given the same kinds of foods that didn’t contain any flaxseed.

After six months, the flaxseed group’s systolic blood pressure measurement (the top number) dropped by 15 points on average. And the diastolic blood pressure (the bottom number) was lowered by 7 points. There was no blood pressure reduction in the study group that consumed no flaxseed. Researchers conclude that this is one of the most powerful dietary supplements ever studied.

Flaxseed has many other health benefits as well. It is loaded with Omega-3 fatty acids, lignans, vitamins and powerful antioxidants. These nutrients are crucial to maintaining good cardiovascular health. The great news is that flaxseed is quite inexpensive and can be found all over the world in most of the big supermarkets or health food stores.

You can use it in seed form, milled. In this way, it can be added to cereals and shakes or sprinkled over salad. Flaxseed oil has also been proven extremely effective to tackle all kinds of inflammation conditions.

FOR HONESTY, I WANT TO MENTION HERE THAT THE RAM BAM[Maimonides] IN SOME OF HIS WRITINGS IS NOT “OVER-ENTHUSIASTIC” ABOUT FLAX SEED……..I can’t ask him anymore why!
