Recent research from Canada reveals that a common seed, found in all supermarkets and health food stores, can lower blood pressure by more than 15 points.
That makes it more effective than most drugs—without any side effects.
The study involved 110 individuals diagnosed with peripheral artery disease (plaque buildup in the arteries of the lower legs) and high blood pressure.
The participants were divided into two groups. One group was instructed to consume a variety of foods that contained about 30 grams (about one ounce) of milled flaxseed. The other group was given the same foods but without any milled flaxseed.
After six months, the flaxseed group’s average systolic blood pressure (the top number) dropped by 15 points, while its average diastolic blood pressure (the bottom number) dropped by 7 points.
No drop in blood pressure was detected in the group that consumed no flaxseed.
According to the researchers, the results indicate that flaxseed is one of the most powerful dietary supplements ever studied.
Notably, flaxseed has many other health benefits as well. It is loaded with omega-3 fatty acids, lignans, vitamins, and powerful antioxidants. These nutrients are crucial to the maintenance of cardiovascular health.
The great news is that flaxseed is quite inexpensive and can be found all over the world in most supermarkets and health food stores.
Another perk of flaxseed is that it can be used milled—in seed form. This way, it can be added to cereal, blended into a shake, or sprinkled over a salad. That being said, flaxseed oil has also been proven to be extremely effective in tackling all kinds of inflammation.
