Flax seed oil is superb for your hair health internally and externally
article by Diane Shawe Author
These tiny seeds are packed with hair nourishing vitamins, minerals and fats. Flax seeds are actually the richest vegetable source of omega-3 fatty acids – which help to nourish your hair follicles and moisturise your scalp skin. Dry, flaky scalp is often attributed to lack of omega-3 in the diet.
Also, if your hair is rough, brittle and frizzy, then eating flax seeds can help a great deal. The various fats and vitamins in flax seeds make hair soft, smooth and flexible, so you will have less breakage; plus they also increase shine and lustre of your hair.
If you don’t enjoy the taste or find them too small and heavy going with flossing, the option of using flaxseed Oil blended into your shampoo or used in your cooking such as salad dressing will still give you the benefits.
Flax seeds contain high amounts of wonderful substance called lignans – which exhibit antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits. Lignans help protect hair follicles from damaging effects of free radicals. Lignans also help in treating dandruff and other itchy scalp conditions like eczema, thus promoting hair growth and healthy scalp.
Data from various hair forums: People who eat flax seeds every day report that their hair loss and thinning is markedly reduced, and some users even have good regrowth on bald areas.
Prefer flax seeds over flax seed oil: Flax seeds are more beneficial than the oil itself. This is because during oil extraction flax loses many of the nutrients properties which are there in the seeds.
Flax seeds improve digestion: The high fibre and mucilage content of flax seeds promote healthy digestive function and improves intestinal absorption of nutrients – which in turn will promote glowing skin and healthy hair.
Other benefits: Eating flax seeds could help you balance hormones, give you clear skin, lower cholesterol, reduce sugar cravings, fight cancer and promote weight loss.
