The benefits of flaxseed and B12

April 18, 2019

Working this powerful little seed and crucial vitamin into your daily routine has a big impact on your health.

Flaxseed is a seed so powerful that a couple tablespoons a day could help lower cholesterol, promote healthy skin and ward off sugar cravings. How? The small seed is a great source of fiber, plant-based omega-3 fatty acids and lignans, which provide us with antioxidants.

They also:

  • help lower bad cholesterol
  • help promote healthy skin
  • help promote hormonal balance

Also ensure you are consuming Vitamin B12 every day, as the lack of it could drive to neurological consequences. The B group vitamins play pivotal roles and have a great impact on neurological health and brain cell functions. These vitamins are essential for the proper functioning and development of nerve cells.
