Flaxseed Oil For Men?s Health
Men are traditionally very poor at taking care of their health. In recent years though many men have been getting their act together and learning to look after themselves a little better. Most men are susceptible to the same things which include prostate cancer, high blood pressure and stomach problems.
There are many things we can do prevent these happening and Omega-3 fatty acids have proven that they have qualities that are very beneficial in reducing the risk of these common problems. These acids are present in fish and more specifically fish oils. However, many people don’t like fish or eat very little of it. There may be a case for educating men as to what their diet should be but in the meantime flaxseed oil can replace the fish and give the same basic benefits. Some research has been completed in the last 10 years but it can be taking pretty much for granted that flaxseed oil can help the following conditions.
A reasonably low fat diet helps to reduce the likelihood of prostate cancer but if there is an additional reducing factor or factors then we should try to do as much as possible to ward off this type of cancer. In 2007 Duke University undertook a major study which uncovered that men who took flaxseed oil and kept up a healthy low-fat diet had significantly less growth in their cancer cells than those who had exactly the same diet but without the flaxseed oil. From this research the doctors surmised that the flaxseed prevented the cancer cells from growing by cutting down the amount of blood flow to the tumor. Amazingly this study doesn’t seem to have been very well publicized and even though testing is ongoing I would suggest that the evidence is already strong enough to start a proper campaign to up the usage on this oil for men of 30 plus.
Flaxseed oil is rich in omega-3 fat and alpha-linolenic acid, which means it has a positive impact on reducing high blood pressure. A 2008 Greek study concluded that blood pressures were significanty lower in men taking flaxseed oil compared to a that of a control group which didnt. Those who take omega-3 fatty acids have a much better chance of keeping and maintaining low blood pressure than those who take the much more common omega-6 acids. Again, for men of 30 and over, surely this is a major benefit to health. Lower blood pressure helps keep a healthier heart and heart disease is one of the leading killers of modern times.
Men are terrible at talking about their stomach problems with many suffering in silence for years. The reason for this is that they probably don’t take enough fibre in their diet. This is so easily resolved .Flaxseed oil and flour provides a fiber that can lower cholesterol levels in men. It can also help individuals with diabetic heart disease reduce colon problems and stabilize blood sugar levels for those with diabetes. Flaxseeds also have been shown to reduce narrowing of blood vessels that often lead to migraines and sleeping issues.
