Flaxseed flour and kefir user experience

Read how kefir helped in solving some problems and how people usually consume it.
I knew before how well flax flour for weight loss is. But I did not believe it was so effective. A friend tried it, so I followed her. I did not specifically changed my diet except that I started taking flaxseed flour with yogurt or sour cream. Now I made a habit by adding it in pies, pastries, vegetable soup. I flattened my stomach in 2 months, it was my goal the year before! S.V. 
I had stomach problems as a child. Constipation, abdominal pain, bloating, haemorrhoids. I was on the tests. I'm not sick, but these symptoms did not pass. I tried for 6 months combination of kefir with flaxseed flour for detoxification and weight loss. I so wanted to lose weight, and clean the stomach and intestines. A month ago I used this in the morning before breakfast. 
In the beginning, there were no significant changes. After two weeks I often went to the toilet. The stool was not hard. After a month I felt so relieved in my stomach like never before. Here and now, after half a year, I feel great I still use it, not in this way, because this detox bowel works only once a year, but I use it in some other way. In principle, I add it to anything and everything, I'm so used to it and I am very happy. K.T.

Who should not use flax in the diet?

According to some studies pregnant and lactating women should not use it. Some believe that it is better to consume linseed than flour and oil. However, studies have so far shown mixed results, and it can be said that the science of flax seeds has not given the final word.

Where to buy flax flour and what is the price

When shopping be careful because only ground flax has effect. This is very important because if you eat the whole grain it will just pass through the digestive tract and will have no effect due to the strong membrane that protects it and the body cannot break it down. You can buy the ground seeds, but you can also make your own grind in a coffee mill.

Whether you are buying a light or dark linseed, with nutritive hand there is no difference, the only thing you will find on sale is often darker seeds.

Flaxseed flour is sold in packages of one pound, and you will find it in all stores, supermarkets and boutiques with healthy food. Price ranges from 3-7 dollars and as you can see, it is not expensive.

When shopping, take note of the declaration, which must say that you are buying whole bean or ground one but when it comes to flour it is clearly stated.

If you make flour by yourself store it in the freezer, because at room temperature it quickly loses its nutritional properties. Whole seeds keep in a cool, dark place up to a year, but is still recommended to keep it in the fridge.

Although flax has healing properties, it is not omnipotent. Studies are showing how flax flour is good for the human body and that can significantly help in some conditions, but there is no guarantee of a cure. Therefore, healthy living, healthy habits and diet combination are great for the prevention of diseases and long and productive life. Miracles are possible, but rare.
