Flaxseed Water for Weight Loss

Flaxseeds contain many beneficial nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, omega-3 fatty acids and fiber, which normalize the work of the intestine. This seed has the power to eliminate the toxins from the body, normalize the metabolism, reduce the blood sugar level and regulate the appetite.

It absorbs the toxic compounds from the food, cleans the intestines and thus supplies the body with lecithin, which stimulates the metabolism of fat.

You can drink ground flaxseed in water, juice, smoothies, protein shakes or any way that tastes good to you.
