What is linseed

The linseed comes from the Mediterranean basin. Its shape resembles sesame seeds. It has been known for centuries for its unique properties and health benefits.

Flaxseed is full of nutrients, omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, minerals and essential vitamins. Cultivated already in the times of Mesopotamia. Thanks to its nutritional properties, it has become a staple in the diet of health enthusiasts around the world. Time to join them to enjoy life in full strength.

Why is linseed so valuable for our body

Flaxseed is rich primarily in oleic acid, which contains glycerides of unsaturated acids (including linolenic and linoleic acids), and is also the best source of omega-3 acids. Linseed is also an excellent source of vitamin E, which is a very strong antioxidant.

Moreover, flax seeds are rich in manganese, potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc and selenium. Due to the huge amount of vitamin B, mainly folate, it is recommended to women planning pregnancy or already in it. It also contains soluble and insoluble fiber, mucus compounds as well as proteins and sterols.

How is it eaten

The optimal amount of linseed that should be consumed during the day is 2-3 teaspoons. However, it is best to grind the flax seeds by yourself just before consumption, because our body will not digest the whole and dry seeds well.

Since ground flaxseed has no flavor, we can add it to virtually any dish, e.g. yoghurts, salads, fruit and vegetable cocktails, homemade bread or biscuits, muesli, sauces, soups, and even as a topping for sandwiches or Salads.

However, it is best to consume flaxseed after it has been soaked in water. The seeds expand and kissel is produced. 1 - 2 teaspoons of seeds should be poured with 250 ml of hot water, covered with a plate for 15 minutes, cooled down and drunk. Drink the resulting infusion in the morning and evening.

Flooded linseed is best stored in a dark and cool place.

You can also prepare a decoction of linseed. In this case, pour a teaspoon of beans with a glass of lukewarm water and cook, covered, over low heat for about 15 minutes. After this time, set aside to cool. Drink half a glass 2 times a day, preferably between meals.

And some other use

A decoction of linseed is also an excellent hair mask. 2 - 3 teaspoons of seeds should be poured over a glass of water and boiled for a few minutes. The resulting "gel" is drained and applied to washed, damp hair. Massage for a while and hold for 30 - 40 minutes. After this time, rinse thoroughly.

If you have some grain "gel" left, you can soak your nails in it for 10-15 minutes. After such treatments, they will become hard and strong.
