What is the role of omega-3 acids contained in the Nutrilans
The role of omega -3 fatty acids is immeasurable for prevention of coronary heart disease, colon cancer, prostate cancer, breast cancer as well as alleviate symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis.
Excellent natural plant source and healthy omega -3 acids is just what Nutrilans strongly represent.
Flaxseed which is part of the dietary product NUTRILANS pulverized by special process "cold milling". It is process of grinding in the special stone mills that enables the preservation of the nutritional properties of flaxseed.
Why ground flaxseed?
The reason is that ungrounded flaxseed has very little or not at all resorption in humans. The human body lacks an enzyme (alpha-celulas), that can decompose very hard membrane of the flaxseed.
Only ruminants and birds can break down such a strong membrane of the flaxseed.
Richness of the ground flaxseed is reflected in the very rich content of soluble and insoluble fibre, high in all 9 of the essential amino acids as well as the already mentioned Omega-3 essential fatty acids.
Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) in powdered Flaxseed showing excellent performance in cleansing the skin, nail growth, hair growth, and reducing LDL (bad) cholesterol.
Unsaturated fatty acids of the flaxseed; linoleic, linolenic and arachidonic acids are collectively referred as vitamin F. Lack of vitamin F is manifested in particular the appearance of acne and pimples.
Large consumption of carbohydrates increases the need for vitamin F. The importance of vitamin F is that it supports the combustion of saturated fatty acids. The high content of lignans – phytoestrogens (secoisolariciresinol diglucosides) provides powerful antioxidant activity of milled flaxseed, so that its implementation proved to be an excellent preventive, for example " Hormone-sensitive cancers " (breast cancer, prostate cancer and colon cancer).
Why is dietary fibre important?
Because of its chemical structure, plant fibres has the ability to bind itself to variety of toxins (ie salt of heavy metals, lead, mercury, cadmium, radionuclides,etc), and also bind to deposits of faecal masses that form the walls of the intestine, as a result of malnutrition and low physical activity.
Irregular bowel movements and difficulty in extending the retention time of food in the digestive tract, causing bloating and a feeling of heaviness in the stomach.
Dietary fibres binds with water to increase the volume of intestinal contents,that cause acceleration and enhance the peristaltic movements of the intestine and creates a softer stool that passes through the colon more easily and quickly.
As recommended by the World Health Organization, daily intake of dietary fibre should be from 30g to 40g per day.
Dietary fibre is important, as it slows down stomach emptying, slowing the absorption of glucose from the intestine and significantly reduces the amount of glucose (sugar) in the blood after a meal (postprandial hyperglycaemia) which is important for those who have problems with high blood sugar.
Plant fibres bind bile acids for themselves and increase their elimination in the stool. This triggers synthesis of bile acids from cholesterol precursors, thereby lowering concentrations of "bad" cholesterol in the blood.
With over 55% of the fibres in its composition from fruits, vegetables, the functional food NUTRILANS is a very rich source of fibre.
