Flax Seed: The Little Powerhouse With Great Benefits

Flax seeds are all the rage these days - we ground them and add them to our breakfast smoothies, sprinkle them on our salads, and even just eat them as an afternoon snack. Thats because these tiny seeds are packed with antioxidants and cholesterol reducing properties that ensure your hearts healthy. They also contain alpha linolenic acid which helps reduce inflammations that cause arthritis, asthma and diabetes, and they even protect the body against cancer (colon cancer to be precise).

But did you know that flax seeds are also great for hair growth, natural exfoliation, and helpful in treating acne? Its the omega 3 fatty acids which increase the speed at which wounds heal. So now you can successfully reduce the occurrence of skin irritation, rashes, inflammation and redness by regularly consuming a few spoons of flax seeds everyday.

At Arata, we discovered the incredible benefits of flax seeds, especially for your hair. The high amount of omega 3 fatty acids increase your hairs elasticity, preventing hair-fall and hair breakage naturally. These tiny seeds are a great supplement if youre dealing with dandruff or eczema, as they increase the production of sebum in the scalp, preventing dandruff.

For men, flax seeds can be a godsend, because the alpha linolenic acid, linolenic acid and oleic acid are known to treat male baldness. Plus, a great source of Vitamin E - one of the best, antioxidant-rich vitamins for hair growth. This little powerhouse of a seed can nourish and condition hair too, reducing dryness and excess frizz, and balance pH levels and oil production in the scalp.

We love this beneficial seed, which is why weve created a 100% nature-derived Hair Gel and Hair Cream, made primarily with nutrient-rich organic flax seed extracts, to give your hair a great shine and healthy volume the way store-bought hair gels and hair creams attempt to! Except we don’t use toxic chemicals and synthetic ingredients, that are of course, terrible for your hair. Thats a lot to get from a tiny seed!
