More importantly, a hectic schedule means that sometimes we don’t look after the one thing that really keeps us going – our heart.
An unbalanced diet high in saturated fat diet can lead to high cholesterol levels and heart problems. National organisations such as The British Heart Foundation have launched their Mending Broken Hearts Campaign, their most ambitious research programme carried out to date to beat heart failure.
With Linwoods Superfoods, this World Heart Day (29 September) it isn’t difficult to make sure you keep your heart healthy on the go by adding a little Flaxseed to your diet. Our award-winning Flaxseed is an easy and simple way to ensure you give your body the necessary fatty acids needed to maintain a healthy ticker. Omega-3, found in Linwoods’ NEW Milled Flaxseed, Bio Culture and Vitamin D blend, is an essential fatty acid used by our bodies to lower cholesterol levels and the risk of heart disease. Plus, the blend is low in saturated fat and cholesterol free!
Packed full of natural goodness, our range of unique superfood blends contain only the finest quality seeds, nuts and berries from around the world. Cold milled to aid quick and easy absorption into the body, alongside helping to keep your heart healthy, one 30g serving of our Milled Flaxseed, Bio Cultures and Vitamin D mix also helps towards:
- A healthy heart – The Flaxseed in the blend is rich in Omega-3, an essential fatty acid that helps to lower cholesterol levels and keep a healthy heart.
- Strong bones and good teeth – Vitamin D in the blend helps the body absorb calcium and contributes to the maintenance of normal bones and teeth. A Vitamin D deficiency in its mildest form can result in tiredness, aches and pains, however a severe lack of the vitamin can cause rickets in children and osteoporosis in adults
- Energy levels – Iron in the blend is an essential part of haemoglobin (part of the red blood cells that carry oxygen around the body and is therefore necessary for energy)
- Good digestive health – the strain of Ganeden Bacillus coagulans culture contained within Milled Flaxseed with Bio Cultures & Vitamin D can withstand stomach acids thus increasing its availability in the small intestine to support a good digestive system
