My chef husband has educated me about the different grains and superfoods that are out there and we are hooked!

Longer, warmer summer days means more activities and smaller outfits. However, long days at the pool or family soccer games in the park are often coupled with empty calories such as sugary frozen treats and syrupy drinks. That’s where Linwoods (www.linwoodshealthfoods.com) comes in to fill nutritional gaps! Linwoods delicious range of flaxseed-based superfoods blends, are all-natural, nutritionally-dense, and easy additions to any summer day!

FIT: Linwoods potent dietary fiber, protein, and good-for-you polyunsaturated fat levels help maintain a healthy body weight and sustain normal blood sugar levels while curbing hunger pangs. Additionally, a 2010 study in The Journal of Nutrition suggests that Flaxseed may help reduce belly fat. The reason is flax’s potent nutrients: flaxseed contains the highest plant-based levels of omega-3s and phytoestrogens called lignans than any other food. This summer, maintain your healthy weight with a healthy and satisfying diet featuring Linwoods.

HEART: Linwoods heart healthy superfoods are low in saturated fat; contain no cholesterol and high in omega-3’s and fiber which all may help prevent high blood cholesterol. Today, heart disease is a leading health concern in America and affects people of all ages and backgrounds.[1] Dr. Frank Sacks, Professor of Cardiovascular Disease Prevention, Department of Nutrition, Harvard School of Public Health shares, “We need omega-3 fatty acids for numerous normal body functions, such as controlling blood clotting and building cell membranes in the brain, and since our bodies cannot make omega-3 fats, we must get them through food. Omega-3 fatty acids are also associated with many health benefits, including protection against heart disease and possibly stroke.”[2]

SMART: Omega-3’s to promote maximum brain activity, and antioxidants to rid the body of free radicals and keep bodily systems working efficiently. Dr. Fernando Gómez-Pinilla, a UCLA professor of neurosurgery and physiological science who has spent years studying the effects of food, exercise and sleep on the brain shares that, “Omega-3 fatty acids support synaptic plasticity and seem to positively affect the expression of several molecules related to learning and memory that are found on synapses,” Gómez-Pinilla said. “Omega-3 fatty acids are essential for normal brain function.”[3]
