The Benefits of Flaxseed

Flaxseed offers the benefits of fiber, Omega-3 fatty acid Alpha-Linolenic Acid (ALA), protein and SDG lignans. Fiber promotes regularity, supports normal functioning of the digestive extract and healthy lipids. ALA is an Omega-3 essential fatty acid that helps support normal cardiovascular function and helps to maintain healthy hair, skin and nails. This premium flaxseed is a  highly concentrated source of secoisolariciresinol diglucoside (SDG) lignans - which are phytonutrients.

 

Not All Flaxseeds Are Created Equal

Spectrum Essentials Brand Flaxseeds are premium quality organic seeds that have been carefully selected for their nutritive content. Flaxseed is the most concentrate source of SDG lignans -the amount of SDG lignans can vary from 0.7% to 1.9% of seed weight depending on seasonal variation in growing conditions. These select seeds are meticulously cleaned using a three-part process to remove low weight, broken and dirty seeds commonly found in bulk bins.  This light-protective pouch has been flushed with an inert gas and airtight sealed to ensure optimum nutritive benefits and product.


Directions

1½ -3 Tbsp. daily. Should be ground prior to consuming for optimum nutritive benefits. Ground seed can be eaten alone, sprinkled on cereal, yogurt and other foods, or used in baking.

 

Refrigerate After Opening: To store, press air out of pouch before closing. Best if used with 3-4 months after opening.

The Smoothie Add-Ins You SHOULD be using

Thick, cool and creamy—not to mention, super simple to prepare… It’s no wonder smoothies have such a loyal fanbase. But if you’re tired of tossing back the same old strawberry-banana smoothie every day, it may be time to rethink your drink.

Forget the status quo and shake things up a bit with these delicious, nutritious smoothie add-ins!

Healthy Smoothie Ingredients - Avocado, Chia, Flax, Turmeric, Ginger | Vitacost.com/Blog

Avocado

This popular fruit (yes, it’s a fruit!) isn’t just for guacamole anymore! The creamy consistency of avocado makes it a perfect addition to shakes and smoothies. Rich in dietary fiber and vitamins C, E and K, the healthy fat source will help keep your hunger in check for hours. Try it for yourself with this yam-avocado coconut smoothie recipe.

Beets

Add color, flavor, potassium, manganese and fiber to your smoothie with… you guessed it, beets! If you have a powerful blender, like the NOW Foods Sports high-speed personal blender, toss ‘em in raw. Otherwise, you’ll have to cook the beets (check out our beet-carrot smoothie recipe). Smart shortcut: use beet powder to reap the same nourishing benefits.

Cocoa

Chocolate milkshakes might not make the breakfast menu, but chocolate-flavored smoothies are perfectly acceptable! For mornings that require a little extra comfort, add some delicious, antioxidant-rich ground cacao nibs or cocoa powder to your shake or smoothie.

Coconut Water

Many athletes choose potassium-rich coconut water for recovery instead of higher-calorie sports drinks. Simply freeze the water in ice cube trays and toss the cubes into your shake or smoothie mixture for an instant tropical electrolyte lift! We love it in this coconut water & mango green smoothie.

Collagen

A structural protein that helps maintain flexibility and strength throughout the body, collagen is a smart addition to your favorite smoothie recipe. Go ahead and mix collagen powder into your frozen drink and let it work its wonders on your skin, hair, nails and joints. Looking for a recipe? Try this blueberry-acai smoothie bowl with collagen and top it with nuts, apples and your favorite seeds!

Greens

Smoothies are a great way to incorporate much-needed greens into your diet that you wouldn’t regularly consume. Use a powder mix or add your favorite fresh or frozen greens (think arugula, broccoli, chard, spinach or kale) to your smoothie base and enjoy. Keep in mind that you may have to play around with ratios to find the perfect balance between nutritional benefits and flavor.

Matcha powder

In need of an instant energy boost? Consider mixing this finely powdered green tea into your smoothies (click here for a matcha green tea smoothie recipe you’ll love). Matcha contains powerful phytonutrients and caffeine for a quick pick-me-up. Plus, you’ll love its light, sweet flavor.

Nut butter

Craving a creamier, more filling drink? Bring on the nut butter! Add body to your shake or smoothie base with a tablespoon of peanut, cashew or almond butter. For optimum health benefits, choose an all-natural variety without added salt, sugar or oils. This could be as simple as combining your nut butter of choice with frozen bananas in a blender, or more gourmet like in this chocolate-almond butter superfood smoothie bowl recipe that calls for bentonite clay (another great add-in!).

Protein powder

A scoop of plain or flavored protein powder can (obviously) increase your protein intake and make your smoothie more satisfying. There are many protein powder bases to choose from, including bone broth, hemp, pea and soy. Don’t be afraid to experiment! Start with this vanilla protein breakfast smoothie.

Seeds

Flavor your smoothie with seeds, and enjoy the added benefits of healthy fat and fiber. Types to consider include flax seeds, chia seeds and hemp seeds. Just be sure to grind them first so they’ll be more easily digested by your body! This refreshing green protein smoothie with chia and flax is a quick-and-easy recipe to follow.

Spices

When it comes to spicing up your smoothies, the sky is the limit. And don’t be afraid to go savory! Some delicious, nutritious choices include cayenne pepper, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, mint, rosemary, turmeric and vanilla. Here’s a citrus sunshine smoothie that calls for turmeric, cayenne and black pepper!

Yogurt

It’s a good source of calcium, magnesium, potassium, B vitamins and those beneficial “live and active cultures,” so why wouldn’t you add yogurt to your shake or smoothie? Plus, it helps up the creaminess factor.
