Physicians, scientists and savvy laypeople want reliable information on foods and supplements which might improve the outcome in chronic diseases that otherwise shorten our lives. These health conditions include type 2 diabetes, heart attacks, high blood pressure, chronic kidney disease and others. Incorporating flaxseed into one's diet can greatly improve outcomes in various health conditions. Thousands of peer-reviewed articles have been published documenting the clinical efficacy of flaxseed as a whole or its individual components and reveal the mechanisms by which those various components work.
Flaxseed: Evidence-Based Cardiovascular and Other Medicinal Benefits is an encyclopedic and definitive text describing the health benefits of this humble plant. The book features exquisite detail on the three major components of the plant that are responsible for most of the documented benefits, those components being omega-3 fatty acids and two compounds that increase endothelial production of nitric oxide, those compounds being the amino acid L-arginine, and cyanogenic glycosides.
Attention Readers: If you are not already familiar with the health benefits of omega-3 fatty acids and of the above-named nitric oxide donors, then this book opens a vast world of scientific discovery that one can immediately apply to improving health. This book calls attention to a wealth of journal articles providing practical information on consuming flaxseed and its overall health benefits. Enjoy!
