Flaxseed was cultivated in Babylon as early as 3000 BC. In the 8th century, King Charlemagne believed so strongly in the health benefits of flaxseed that he passed laws requiring his subjects to consume it. Now, thirteen centuries later, some experts say we have preliminary research to back up what Charlemagne suspected.
Three pomegranate cultivars (Tunisia soft seed, Taishanhong, and Qingpiruanzi) were used to evaluate their seed germination percentage, potential, germination time, and shoot growth indices along with antioxidant capacity, bioactive components (i.e., oil, crude fat, soluble sugar, protein, total phenolic and flavonoid, and Vitamin C (VC) content, and mineral element contents of their seeds and sprouts). ‘Tunisia soft seed’ exhibited the highest germination percentage (86.33%) and potential (39.33%) while ‘Qingpiruanzi’ had the shortest germination time (15d) and lowest rate (23.33%). Soluble sugar content of sprouts (16.93–25.81 mg/g) was 1–2-folds that of seeds (8.29–14.06 mg/g). The soluble protein content of seeds (102.05–161.37 mg/g) was 10-fold higher than that of sprouts (14.71–21.46 mg/g), while the VC content of sprout (29.11–32.83 mg/100g) was more than 10 times higher than that of seed (1.89–3.25 mg/100g). Oil content of three varieties’s seeds ranged from 164.44 to 183.52 mg/g. Pomegranate seed oil contains 14 fatty acids, the most abundant of which is punicic acid (71.85–77.78%). Pomegranate seeds and sprouts are also rich in mineral elements (calcium 99.49–238.25 mg/100g) and magnesium (97.41–187.59 mg/100g). Total phenols (14.68–16.29 mg/g) and flavonoids (1.97–2.48 mg/g) content in sprouts were significantly higher than that of seeds (3.88–4.96 and 0.51–0.68 mg/g). Antioxidant capacity detected by ABTS and DPPH, FRAP assay was positively associated with total phenolic (ABTS: r = 0.946, DPPH: r = 0.977, FRAP: r = 0.985). These preliminary results were essential to investigate the possibilities of commercial natural health food utilization of pomegranate products in China.
This antioxidant-rich fruit can assist block extra estrogen production in your body. Pomegranate has the ability to prevent kinds of breast cancers that respond to estrogen.
Pomegranates have a natural agent that can inhibit the enzyme in women`s bodies that converts estrone into estradiol, which is a powerful estrogen that could play a role in the origin of hormone-dependent cancers.
Flax seed is a great source of “Phytoestrogens”, and it particularly contains a kind of phytoestrogen called lignums. Lignin’s have both estrogenic and antiestrogenic impact, and they have been known to have protective benefits against specific types of cancer.
Flax seed is also a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, and antioxidants. Try having it in your oatmeal, or even add it in your curd or dalia.
