In brief: Lipoproteins
Flax seed can help to lower cholesterol & low-density lipoprotein levels & help reduce the risk of heart disease.
Because your body can digest ground flaxseed better than whole flaxseed, the ground flaxseed is preferable. This will provide more of the benefits from the lignans and the omega – 3 –fatty acids in the flaxseed. With flaxseed oil, it is quite important that it be cold pressed.
