Flaxseed known as Golden flax, Annula flax, Liniemen, Kahtan, Lin, Linazo, Lino, iinseed and in Hindi Alsi is on oilseed. It is known for good nutritional characteristics. It is most noted for high levels of alpha-linolenic acid, phytoestrogenic compound known as lignan and soluble and insoluble fiber. Flaxseed is rich source of the lignin secoisolariciresinol diglucoside (SDG). Flaxseed has anti hypercholesterolaemic effects. Ecosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and decosahexaenoic acid (DHA) are synthesized by omega-3 fatty acids present in flaxseed. Both substances are helpful for controlling cardiovascular disease. Flaxseed has beneficial effect on platelet aggregation and immune function. Flaxseed protein can be used as physiological functional foods for proteins with malnutrition during chronic liver diseases. Alpha-linoienic acid during pregnancy and early growth is vital for proper nerve and visual development of the foetus and infant. Hence, flaxseed can play a vital role in the development of the brain and retinal tissues of infants.

Abstract


Flaxseed known as Golden flax, Annula flax, Liniemen, Kahtan, Lin, Linazo, Lino, iinseed and in Hindi Alsi is on oilseed. It is known for good nutritional characteristics. It is most noted for high levels of alpha-linolenic acid, phytoestrogenic compound known as lignan and soluble and insoluble fiber. Flaxseed is rich source of the lignin secoisolariciresinol diglucoside (SDG). Flaxseed has anti hypercholesterolaemic effects. Ecosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and decosahexaenoic acid (DHA) are synthesized by omega-3 fatty acids present in flaxseed. Both substances are helpful for controlling cardiovascular disease. Flaxseed has beneficial effect on platelet aggregation and immune function. Flaxseed protein can be used as physiological functional foods for proteins with malnutrition during chronic liver diseases. Alpha-linoienic acid during pregnancy and early growth is vital for proper nerve and visual development of the foetus and infant. Hence, flaxseed can play a vital role in the development of the brain and retinal tissues of infants.
