 Advantages for Men’s Health

Flaxseed is filled with nutrients that could have extensive benefits for men’s health. Packed with fibre, plant-based omega-3 fats, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, flaxseed has the potential to enhance prostate health, cardiovascular function, digestive health, and may even help with weight loss.
Of course, there is no magic bullet for men’s health, not one superfood that will fully transform your diet, but when joined to other healthy practices, a daily dose of flaxseed is a simple way to get more fibre, more omega-3 fats, and a large shot of vitamins and minerals into your diet.

Benefits of Flaxseed for Men

A healthy prostate

It is suspected that a collection of plant-based hormone-balancing substances (also known as phytoestrogens) may have a hormone-balancing effect on testosterone in men. Flaxseeds contain phytoestrogens called lignans, and some studies show that adding flaxseed to the diet could be protective for prostate health.
It suggests that phytoestrogen-rich foods, such as soy and flaxseeds, may have prostate cancer-protective properties. Although not conclusive, research suggests that flaxseed may help to lessen the incidence of prostate cancer and its progression.

Cardiovascular support

Flaxseeds are rich with nutrients that have the ability to help reduce cardiovascular risk factors such as triglycerides, cholesterol balance, and blood pressure.
The mix of omega-3 fats (alpha-linolenic acid (ALA)), fibre, lignins, and antioxidants all combine to have this potent effect. Choose milled flaxseed to enjoy the heart-healthy benefits of this little seed for men’s health because the health benefits of flaxseed are obtained by eating the seeds, not the oil.


Although it may not be appropriate to bring up constipation in polite company, it can be a serious issue that affects more than just your digestion. Being constipated prevents your body from expelling toxins, which can influence your energy levels, emotions, and even hormone balance.It has been demonstrated that adding flaxseeds to our diet on a regular basis will help treat constipation and maintain regularity.
Additionally, flaxseed fiber is useful as a prebiotic because it promotes the growth of good probiotic bacteria in your microbiome. Make sure to drink enough water, add 20g to your daily meal, yoghurt, or even your favourite curry, and watch your digestive system work! If you have IBS or are not used to a higher-fibre diet, start out gently and increase your intake gradually. This is because introducing a lot of flax seed fibre at once can be challenging to digest and may cause you to feel more windy and gassy if your body is not acclimated to it.

Loss of weight

Imagine a food that makes you feel satiated for longer, may lower insulin resistance, and might aid in a weight-loss effort. You might find the solution you’re seeking in flaxseeds.
Very low GI, high in protein and healthy fats, and high in fibre, all of which assist in controlling hunger and maintaining a good blood sugar-insulin response, which is crucial for anyone looking to lose weight and improve their men’s health. When added to breakfast, fibre, fat, and protein can help you feel satiated for longer, allowing you to stay active through lunch. The better for our waistlines is to limit the amount of snacking we do in between meals.
