Alsi also known as Flax Seed has lots of advantages in the treatment of lifestyle related diseases: 

  • Alsi lignin reduces the accumulation of visceral and liver fat caused by a high-fat diet.
  • It helps to improve hypercholesterolemia, hyperinsulinemia, hyperlipidaemia, and hyperleptinemia.
  • This property of Alsi lignin may aid in the prevention of obesity.
  • Lignan, which is found in Alsi, has been shown to reduce the relative risk factors for heart disease associated with lifestyle diseases such as diabetes, atherosclerosis, and hypertension.
  • Furthermore, human studies have shown that Alsi seeds aid in:

  • Some serum total and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol concentrations are reduced.
  • Postprandial glucose absorption is reduced.
  • lowering some inflammatory markers
  • Increasing serum levels of the cardioprotective fatty acid's natural precursor. 

Alsi Advantages Due to Anti-Diabetic Functions: 

According to studies, consuming Alsi seeds by healthy subjects improved their peak glucose levels. Furthermore, lignan supplementation in the daily diet of type 2 diabetic patients resulted in small but statistically significant improvements in glycemic control with no effect on lipid profile, fasting glucose, or insulin sensitivity. 


Benefits of Alsi Due to Antioxidant Activity: 

Alsi seeds are high in antioxidants, which are found in lignans. Alsi's antioxidant activity is responsible for its ability to prevent premature skin ageing and pigmentation, as well as to strengthen immunity.

Alsi seeds' antioxidant properties have been shown to reduce platelet aggregation and total cholesterol levels. It is also thought that antioxidant activity is responsible for the hypoglycemic effect in type 2 diabetes.

Benefits of Alsi Due to Anti-Cancer Activity: 

Alsi has been shown in animal models to reduce primary risk markers of mammary and colonic carcinogenesis. Alsi seed lignans have been investigated for their ability to reduce the size of mammary tumours in carcinogen-treated rats.

A study of the effect of Alsi consumption on cancer risk markers in humans found that eating Alsi seeds daily in the diet stimulated various hormonal changes in the body associated with a lower risk of breast cancer. 

Benefits of Alsi in Managing Kidney Diseases:

According to animal studies, Alsi derivatives such as oil and lax lignans influence the development of renal conditions such as polycystic kidney disease. The studies are still ongoing to determine which component of Alsi is responsible for its renal protective effect. 


Benefits of Alsi in Digestive Health: 

Alsi's high soluble and insoluble dietary fibre content aids in the maintenance of regular bowel movements, thereby preventing constipation. Alsi contains magnesium, which is responsible for relaxing the muscles of the digestive tract and thus maintaining a healthy gut.
