Why LSA and Flax Seed Powder?
Flaxseed powder provides a stack of health benefits including omega-3 fatty acids, protein, and minerals that are good for your heart and immune system. It also provides fiber to make you feel full, lignans that can fight off some types of cancer, and vitamins that enable more efficient conversion of food into energy.
LSA is also loaded with protein. This makes you have fewer sugar cravings because the protein balances your blood sugar levels. It regulates your cholesterol, and it’s good for your heart and brain because of the ample amount of omega-3 fatty acids. It helps burn off fat cells, detoxes your liver, and keeps your bones and skin healthy.
This smoothie tastes great, without any added sweeteners or sugar. The absence of sweeteners prevents insulin spikes and keeps the smoothie super healthy.
It’s easy to make, especially if you use ground powder for LSA and flax seeds so that they all mix better. Try giving this recipe a go, you won’t be left disappointed, and your body will thank you later.
