- Product Overview
NutriVital Good For You LSA Mix combines the goodness of linseeds, sunflower kernels and almonds, ground together into a versatile powder for easy use in smoothies and baking.
Together, linseeds, sunflower kernels and almonds offer a combination of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids (including the omega-3 fat alpha-linolenic acid, ALA), and are a good source of dietary fibre.
LSA Mix also provides a wide range of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients. In particular, sunflower kernels and almonds are both excellent sources of vitamin E, and linseeds and linseed meal are the richest known dietary source of a class of phytoestrogens called lignans.
These nutritional properties mean that LSA Mix is a useful addition to a heart-healthy diet, working to protect the cardiovascular system in a number of ways:
- Healthy sources of fat (such as monounsaturated fatty acids) help to offset the effects of saturated fats, which increase cardiovascular disease risk.
- Soluble fibre from linseeds has benefits for cholesterol and blood sugar balance. In particular, the lignans present in the fibre have documented cholesterol-lowering properties.
- Almonds help to lower cholesterol levels, decrease insulin secretion (in patients without diabetes), and reduce the glycaemic impact (GI) of carbohydrate-rich foods.
- ALA has anti-inflammatory properties that may offer additional support to the cardiovascular system
- Vitamin E and other antioxidants may help to prevent the oxidation cholesterol molecules and free radical damage in the blood vessels.
Sprinkle a tablespoonful of NutriVital Good For You LSA Mix over your breakfast cereal or porridge, stir it into yoghurt, or blend it into a smoothie or fresh fruit juice.
Add NutriVital Good For You LSA Mix to recipes for bread, muffins, cookies and other baked goods.
For optimal absorption of the precious omega-3 fats in linseed, we recommend NutriVital Good for You Organic Flaxseed Oil.
