Hello I’m Dr. Ekberg and I want to talk
to you about a couple of super foods often times people complain that good
foods are expensive well these are incredibly inexpensive there are flax
seed and chia seed and what’s so good about them is they are the two most
concentrated sources of vegetable omega-3 that exists a big part of the
health problem we have today is that most processed foods all vegetable oils
most nuts and most seeds are very high in omega 6’s which is pro-inflammatory
omega 3’s are anti-inflammatory so we want to try to increase our omega 3s
to balance that ratio out a little bit I have with me I buy these at the DeKalb
farmers market in Atlanta they’re organic brown flaxseed is a dollar ninety-nine a
pound and organic black chia seed is $3.99 a pound incredibly inexpensive flax seed
is 40 percent fat and the rest is fiber and protein is virtually zero carb and
just a few tablespoons a day gives you an incredible fiber contribution keeps
the bowels moving wonderfully more than half of that fat is omega-3 the chia
seed is almost as high in all of those components it’s very high in omega-3s
very high in protein very high in fiber I just used both to
get a little bit of variety so if you’re looking for some superfoods then go for
flaxseed and chia seeds thing to keep in mind about these seeds though is the
Chia you can eat it you can chew it and it breaks down you can digest it pretty
readily the problem with flax is that it is very very sensitive it keeps very
well as long as it’s a whole seed but if you eat it just like that if you
sprinkle it on yogurt or whatever then it’s pretty much gonna pass through you
undigested and do you no good whatsoever so you need to break the seed you need
to grind it the problem with that is because it’s so high in omega-3s it is
extremely sensitive to go rancid so what you want to do is if you can buy these
ground you want to make sure it’s packed in nitrogen and then as soon as you open
it and bring it home you put it in the freezer
you can grind these yourself and there’s a video that shows you how to do
that and you want to grind them yourself and then immediately freeze them you can
put them in a little ziplock bags and just take out as much as you need
so incredibly inexpensive very very sensitive there’s a few tricks on how to
manage it so that you get most of the nutrition and none of the side effects
none of the downsides of that so I sprinkle it straight on my yogurt it’s
an easy way to get a few tablespoons in please comment and let us know if you
have other ways of using flax and Chia or other healthy seeds for more variety
