These small but powerful seeds have been very popular lately due to their countless health benefits. Flaxseeds contain anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids and phytoestrogens, along with antioxidant substances called lignans that help promote hormonal balance. They aid in circulation which improves uterine function and, due to their estrogen balancing ability, can assist in maintaining menstrual cycle regularity by encouraging a normal length luteal phase.
Flaxseed oil helps with hormone binding, thus improving fertility. Also, they have a gluey, mucilage outer layer that acts as a natural lube combating vaginal dryness💦. Yes, these tiny seeds have fertility written all over them! To maximize body absorption of flaxseeds, grind them up using a blender (I use a Ninja, works wonderfully), and add one to two tablespoons of the powder to your breakfast smoothie, oatmeal, or sprinkle some over your salad. Consult your doctor or herbalist about proper dosage if used in capsule form. Small changes to your diet benefit your body in ways far beyond what you can think! Keep in mind, we are taking baby steps (literally) towards our womb health!
