Flaxseed Extract, The Triple Threat Against Aging and Sun Damage

flaxseed extract, the triple threat against aging and sun damage 

    Flaxseed is a good source of manganese, vitamin B1, and magnesium, but is a major powerhouse when it comes to omega-3 fatty acids. Some studies have indicated that flaxseeds may lower cholesterol levels, particularly in women, and may benefit individuals with certain types of cancers. In fact, in animal studies, the omega-3 fatty acid found in flaxseed (ALA) inhibited tumor incidence and growth. It also seems to have the ability to stabilize blood sugar levels.

    Flaxseed is also high in “lignans,” a type of phytoestrogen that has shown some ability to protect against cancers sensitive to hormones. Lignans have also shown in studies to help prevent hardening of the arteries and keep plaque from building up inside them. Omega-3 fatty acids may also play a role in maintaining the heart’s natural rhythm, and both ALA and lignans may help decrease inflammatory reactions that can lead to Parkinson’s, asthma, heart disease, and strokes.

    These three power components of flaxseed—omega-3 fatty acids, lignans, and antioxidants—also have the ability to benefit the health of our skin. Here are some examples:

    Fatty acids keep skin hydrated, moist, and smooth, preventing drying and reducing the look of fine lines, wrinkles, and dullness.

    Antioxidants help protect the skin from free radicals, slowing oxidative damage and protecting from UV rays.

    The anti-inflammatory properties help reduce skin irritation and inflammation, cutting down on redness and rashes. In fact, flaxseed oil is often recommended for the treatment of rosacea, psoriasis, and eczema.

    Flaxseed’s natural oils are known to help encourage healing, and are used in treating acne breakouts and wounds. The fatty acids help naturally balance the oils within the skin.

    The fatty layer of our skin tends to flatten and shrink as we age. The fatty acids in flaxseed help to bring back elasticity, hiding wrinkles and plump the skin back to a more youthful appearance.

    Lignans in flaxseed aid the skin in helping to reverse the signs of aging.
