Heart Healthy Flax Seed may also be beneficial in promoting a better mood.
March 17, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsLITTLETON, CO – Mar 17, 2007 — At the annual meeting of the American Psychosomatic Society in Budapest, Hungary Dr. Sarah M. Conklin, a postdoctoral scholar in the department of psychiatry at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine reported that omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, found in salmon and flax seed may affect parts of the brain related to emotion.
Conklin and her colleagues found in a study group of 55 participants that the volume of gray matter in the human brain, particularly the parts associated with mood, was proportional to the consumption of omega-3 fatty acids.
Previously, researchers had found that participants with lower blood levels of omega-3 fatty acids were more likely to be impulsive and have a negative outlook, while those with higher blood levels were more agreeable and less likely to report mild or moderate symptoms of depression.
Pound for pound flax seed contains more omega-3 fatty acids than any other natural source and contains about 3 times as much as an equivalent weight of salmon.
Numerous other new scientific findings have suggested that including flax seed in your daily diet may provide a number of other health benefits in addition to helping you start your day in a better mood. Researchers at St. Boniface’s Canadian Centre for Agri-Food
Research in Health and Medicine (CCARM) laboratory are currently investigating the possibility that flax seed may provide protective benefits for the heart. A recent scientific study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition suggests that including flaxseed in your diet could promote favorable ratios of omega fatty acids.
Omega-3 fatty acids, a type of polyunsaturated fat, have long been considered “good fats.” There is growing scientific evidence that these fatty acids, in correct quantities and ratios to other fatty acids, can promote healthy heart function.
