Even the smallest amount of flax contains an abundance of vitamins and minerals that are good for your body. Science offers evidence on its efficacy in improving both health and beauty.
Flax seed is efficient in boosting metabolism and improving digestion, which is the main reason why it is the most common ingredient used in the preparation of healthy shakes and detox treatments. It is rich in vitamins A, F, E, B, omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids, meaning that it is even healthier than fish. Flax seed is one of the best natural sources of fiber essential for a proper diet regimen and good digestion. Also, it contains lecithin, which has the ability to dissolve fat and reduce cholesterol. And last, but not less important is the fact that flax seed contains substances that possitively affect the skin health, eliminate wrinkles, revitalize and slow down the aging process.
Flax seed in the service of beauty!
You can prepare some efficient flax seed face masks at home, and you can use the seeds both ground or whole.
Add 1/3 cup of boiling water and a tablespoon of flax seeds to a small bowl. Stir the mixture well and cover the bowl using a clean cloth. Let it rest until the evening, and then apply the mask on your face. Make sure you apply the mask on a perfectly clean skin. Apply a single layer and wait for it to dry, then apply 4 more layers, one at a time.
Rinse the mask with some warm water and apply your regular moisturizer.
Flax seeds contain phytoestrogens that keep your skin smooth and elastic, providing a younger skin appearance. Other foods also contain phytoestrogens (in this article we focused on their ability to rejuvenate the face skin). Make yourself a youth elixir using some flax seeds. It will help you keep your skin smooth, and the body healthy and vital.
Blend 2 unpeeled lemons and 2 lemon peels well, then add 3 garlic bulbs, ¾ cup of flaxseed oil and 1kg of organic honey. Keep the youth elixir in your refrigerator and take a tablespoon before each meal. Make a break every other week.
You should soon see some results and improvement in the overall health.
