Nuts and seeds are an essential part of any diet as they are a great source of protein and healthy fats.  This great product not only provides your body with the goodness of three of the best nuts you can eat, it also provides your body with the goodness of flaxseed and the power of the Co-Enzyme Q10 (CoQ10).

So let’s look at why you should start adding this combination of nuts, flaxseed and CoQ10 to your diet.

Flaxseed power
Flaxseed is one of nature’s richest plant sources of Omega 3 fatty acids which are essential in helping your body maintain normal blood cholesterol levels.  Flaxseed is also a great source of dietary fibre which the body needs to ensure your digestive system functions as normal.  It is also a great source of protein which is essential for any balanced diet.

Go nutty
Nuts are one of nature’s little wonders and they all offer your body different health and nutritional benefits.  Almonds, Brazil nuts and walnuts are among the best nuts you can eat with almonds one of the best nuts in fighting disease and also aiding your diet.  Almonds are a great source of vitamin E which is great for your skin. 

Walnuts are full of goodness and are a good source of mono-unsaturated fats.  These are heart friendly fats that can help reduce the level of bad cholesterols in your body.  Walnuts are particularly popular with individuals who have heart problems. 

The final member of the nutty club in this pack of goodness is Brazil nuts.  Brazil nuts can provide your immune system with a great daily boost.  They are also a great source of selenium which your body needs to help produce the active thyroid hormone.  You can get your daily dose of selenium from 3 – 4 Brazil nuts so our flaxseed, almond, Brazil nut, walnut and CoQ10 mix is a great way to add some selenium to your diet on a daily basis.  Selenium is also great at fighting against some Cancer’s, especially prostate Cancer which makes Brazil nuts a popular nutty choice for men.

Join the CoQ10 club
Finally, you will get a great boost of the Co-Enzyme Q10 from this mix of seeds and nuts.  You may be wondering what CoQ10 actually is.  CoQ10 is a naturally occurring fat-soluble compound present in each & every living cell. It acts as a very effective antioxidant.  

The benefits of Linwoods flaxseed, almonds, Brazil nuts, walnuts and CoQ10:

1. Antioxidant effects on body
The co-enzyme Q10 occurs naturally in the body but as we get older, our levels of CoQ10 fall.  It’s important to find other ways of maintaining these levels and with few foods producing CoQ10, this blend is a great way to maintain your CoQ10 levels.  CoQ10 is a highly effective antioxidant and contributes to the production of energy in every cell in the body. One serving (30g) gives you 30mg of CoQ10.

2. Body beautiful
This blend is a great source of Magnesium which helps support the function of your muscles and nervous system.  Magnesium also helps you maintain healthy bones and contributes to your metabolism allowing you to achieve normal energy levels.  This wonderful blend of nuts and seeds provides your body with 25% of your RDA in just a 30g serving.

3. Helps your immune system
As mentioned earlier, Brazil nuts are a great source of selenium which your body needs to support the normal functions of the immune system.  Selenium also helps to protect your cells from oxidative stress which is thought to be involved in the development of cancer,  Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease,  heart failure, Sickle Cell Disease and chronic fatigue syndrome. A 30g serving of this mix will provide you with 36% of your RDA of selenium.
