When you choose to consume a sugar-free diet, you eliminate sugar and all of its relatives, such as high-fructose corn syrup. Sugar-free diets also frequently advocate consuming foods that are low on the glycemic index, such as whole wheat, instead of foods that can quickly spike blood sugar, like white bread, to keep blood-sugar levels steady. Going sugar-free has many purported benefits, from weight control to better physical and mental health.
The Benefits of Flaxseed
Flaxseeds Have Antioxidants and Minerals.
Improve Digestion : Flaxseeds are rich in soluble and insoluble dietary fiber, which can help prevent constipation. They can also act as a laxative to treat constipation due to their high content of mucilage gums
Fight Cancer: Flaxseed play an important role in fighting cancers—especially of the hormone-sensitive variety, such as breast cancer. This is because when eaten, the lignans we talked about earlier convert into two substances in the gut: enterodiol and enterolactone
Improve Brain Health : Flaxseed is rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Specifically, it’s high in a type of omega-3 called alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), which has been strongly linked to brain health
Support the Immune System : Flaxseed protein is made up of abundant amounts of arginine and glutamine, which have been shown to help support our immune system
Fight Diabetes : If there was ever a way to directly increase your risk for developing diabetes, high blood sugar would be it. Luckily, the lignans and fatty acids in flaxseed have been shown to offer protection against diabetes by inhibiting expression of a gene that codes for an important glucose-synthesizing enzyme in the liver
Improve Skin and Hair : Flaxseed is beneficial for the skin and hair, able to improve its luster and shine.
