Flax Seed is one of the world’s oldest crops, having been eaten and used medicinally since the beginning of civilization. These days, while primarily used as a source of fiber for paper and fabric (linen—to be exact), it’s still considered a superfood that provides a plethora of health and beauty benefits.
Flax seeds are a good source of healthy fats, antioxidants, and fiber as well as protein, lignans, and the essential fatty acid ALA (alpha-linolenic acid). As a matter of fact, flaxseed is the richest plant source of ALA in the world, with 70%% of its total fat profile made up of ALA. It’s also high in other valuable fatty acids, such as palmitic, stearic, oleic, and linoleic acids, that are beneficial to the body.
Skin and Hair Benefits of Flax Seeds:
Prevents Acne: acne is caused by inflammation, imbalanced hormones, and the plugging of skin cells in pores. Flax seeds are high in anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids that help curb inflammation in the skin.
Softens Fine Lines: The same antioxidant properties that soothe inflammation and irritation can also soften the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Applying flaxseed gel (which occurs naturally when ground flaxseeds are combined with water) or rubbing a few drops of flaxseed oil directly on the skin can help make the skin appear fuller and tighter. And the fatty acids in flaxseed help to tone, tighten firm, and plump the skin back to a more youthful appearance.
Soothes Skin Irritation: Highly concentrated antioxidants found in flaxseed protect skin against free radicals and UV rays. Its anti-inflammatory properties help reduce redness and irritation while encouraging skin cells to heal more quickly.
Flaxseed has B vitamins which are known to strengthen your hair follicle and help with faster hair growth. In addition, it also contains vitamin E which reduces the effect of free radicals on your scalp, helping with faster hair growth
