Flaxseeds are high in fiber. Fiber-rich food enhances intestinal well-being and is rich in vitamins and minerals. Linseed meal contains on average 37 % of dietary fiber so it’s very high in fiber. 2/3 of the fiber is insoluble and 1/3 is soluble fiber. Insoluble fiber supports intestinal well-being by increasing the mass of stool and the amount of friendly bacteria.
Water-soluble fiber is rich in berries and oat bran that Linomix contains. Fiber-rich foods keeps hunger away better than fiber-free food. Flax contains hundreds of times more lignans than other crops. The oat fiber in Linomix promotes the increase in fecal mass.
Lignan is the most important plant estrogen in the western diet and acts as a powerful antioxidant. Flaxseeds contain lignans. Lignan is a phenolic compound and a plant estrogen. From the daily dose of Linomix about 7 mg of lignans are obtained.
Like other seeds, flaxseed contains a dense package of oils, protein, minerals and vitamins. Flaxseeds are rich in e.g. linoleic and alpha-linolenic acid. Alpha-linolenic acid is a human essential polyunsaturated fatty acid, which is one of the omega-3 fatty acids. Finnish flaxseeds contains up to 20 % more good fatty acids than imported flaxseeds from abroad due to the long days of summertime.
Linomix also contains plant sterols and plant stanols, which are naturally present in berries, cereal products and vegetable oils. They promote the maintenance of normal cholesterol levels and a beneficial effect is obtained by ingesting at least 0,8 g of them per day.
Berries are high in pectin, which helps to reduce high blood sugar after a meal (pectins should be consumed 10 g daily).
