Super LSA and its benefits…
So folks we have recently launched our new Super LSA and wanted to give you a little information on the goodies it has to offer….
LSA stands for Linseed, Sunflower seed and Almonds and was originally invented in Australia as part of a liver cleansing diet.
LSA offers us a healthy source of fat in the form of omega, 3 and 6, which offset the effects of saturated fats (the ones that lead to cardiovascular disease risk).
The Soluble fibre from linseeds has benefits for cholesterol and blood sugar balance. In particular, the lignans present in the fibre have documented cholesterol-lowering properties.
The ALA (Alpha linoleic acid) found in linseeds also offers anti-inflammatory support.
Almonds help to lower cholesterol levels and decrease insulin secretion (in patients without diabetes), and reduce the glycaemic impact (GI) of carbohydrate-rich foods.
Linseed is great for your skin, as well as being a rich source of lignans – a phytoestrogen that protects against cancer particularly hormone sensitive cancers such as prostate or breast.
The beetroot powder we have added to our LSA compliments the other ingredients in supporting the liver and heart. Not least of all the betaine, a significant photochemical found in beetroot, which helps the liver process fat and therefore help lower cholesterol. It also contains a wide range of B vitamins, vitamin A and C and beneficial minerals.
And all these ingredients are ground down into a fine powder to make it easy for our body to assimilate the treasure trove of goodness they offer.
How to eat it?
LSA mix is best used raw, i.e. without cooking, as the heating will destroy some health benefits. Try sprinkling it on your muesli, porridge or in a smoothie. Or try with chopped fruit with a dollop of natural yogurt.
The beetroot in our LSA will naturally sweeten whatever its added to as well as turning it a beautiful pink colour so you can keep away from any refined sugars…. Enjoy!
