3 Health Benefits Snickerdoodle N’Oatmeal
#1: Promotes Hormone Balance
While flax seeds have a myriad of health benefits, their antioxidant content is rarely highlighted. Maybe its because they’re also such an incredible source of ALA (omega-3,) and fiber.
Flax seeds happen to be a rich source of lignans, an antioxidant compound that also displays estrogenic qualities. These phytoestrogens can block some of the effects of estrogen in your body[*].
Why is this a good thing?
Anti-estrogenic effects can help reduce the risk of some hormone-associated cancers (such as breast, prostate, ovarian, and uterine). At the same time, the estrogenic effects of phytoestrogens can help maintain bone density in those that are low in estrogen[*].
#2: Supports Joint Health
As a crucial element of your connective tissue, collagen plays an essential role in the health of your joints.
Your joints are protected by a tissue called cartilage. Collagen is the primary protein found in your cartilage and helps to support the integrity of this vital tissue.
One unfortunate issue that often arises as people age is a depletion in cartilage. This can happen either due to overuse, or too much inflammation. When cartilage starts to break down issues with joint health results — often leading to osteoarthritis.
Research shows, however, that collagen supplementation can support the health of your cartilage. This results in a reduction in joint pain as well as enhanced mobility. Sneaking collagen into your diet may be a great way to get ahead of potential future joint health issues[*].
#3: Rich In Fiber
This oatmeal is teaming with fiber-rich ingredients like chia seeds and flax seeds.
Getting enough fiber in your diet is essential for overall health, and can have an incredibly powerful effect on your digestion. This n’oatmal recipe contains both soluble and insoluble fiber to help keep you regular.
The insoluble fiber in flax seeds helps to add bulk to your stools and assists in helping food pass more quickly through your digestive tract. Meanwhile, the soluble fiber in chia seeds provides a gel-like consistency that helps to slow digestion down when things are moving too quickly[*].Print
If you’re getting tired of the standard egg and avocado keto breakfast, it may be time to sweeten things up.
