Flaxseed and testosterone

In a 2007 study, researchers found that people who consumed more than 5 grams of flaxseed per day had lower testosterone levels.

What’s more, the same study found that flaxseed consumption also resulted in a decrease in luteinizing hormone (LH). LH is a hormone that stimulates testosterone production in the testicles.

The study also found that flaxseed consumption increased the amount of C-reactive protein (CRP), a marker of inflammation, in the blood. CRP is a pro-inflammatory protein that’s released by the liver in response to an inflammatory response.

In a 2008 study, researchers found that flaxseed consumption was associated with higher blood pressure in people who were overweight.

In a 2015 study, researchers found that flaxseed consumption was associated with increased levels of C-reactive protein (CRP), a marker of inflammation, in the blood of obese men.

Flaxseed and inflammation

Flaxseed consumption has been associated with an increase in inflammation.

Inflammation is a response to a number of factors, from injuries to infections to chronic conditions like diabetes. Inflammation is part of the body’s healing process, as it helps to remove dead tissue and resolve damaged tissue.

Inflammation may be beneficial in some cases. For instance, it may be a protective mechanism for the body to fight infections.

However, inflammation is a key component in the development of several chronic diseases, including:

  • Heart disease
  • Cancer
  • Chronic lung disease

Researchers have found that flaxseed consumption may increase inflammation in the body. For example, the same study found that flaxseed consumption was associated with higher blood pressure in people who were overweight.

Flaxseed and cholesterol

Flaxseed consumption has been associated with higher cholesterol levels.

Researchers in a 2009 study found that people who consumed more than 5 grams of flaxseed per day had higher cholesterol levels.

The study also found that people who ate more than 5 grams of flaxseed per day also had higher levels of LDL, or “bad,” cholesterol. LDL is a type of fat in the blood that can build up in the blood vessels and harden into plaque.

The study also found that flaxseed consumption was associated with higher levels of inflammation in the body. For example, the study found that flaxseed consumption was associated with higher levels of C-reactive protein (CRP), a marker of inflammation, in the blood of obese men.

Flaxseed and diabetes

Flaxseed consumption has been associated with higher blood sugar levels in people who have diabetes.

Researchers in a 2007 study found that people who consumed flaxseed had higher blood sugar levels after eating. However, eating a high-fiber diet did not affect the serum glucose levels.

The researchers also found that flaxseed consumption was associated with higher levels of inflammation in the body.

Flaxseed and prostate cancer

Flaxseed consumption has also been associated with an increased risk of prostate cancer.

Researchers in a 2008 study found that men who ate more than 5 grams of flaxseed per day had a higher risk of prostate cancer.

However, eating a high-fiber diet did not affect the risk of prostate cancer.

Flaxseed and osteoporosis

In a 2016 study, researchers found that flaxseed consumption was associated with higher levels of C-reactive protein (CRP), a marker of inflammation, in the blood of obese men.

The study also concluded that flaxseed consumption was associated with an increased risk of osteoporosis in men who were overweight.

Flaxseed and gout

In a 2017 study, researchers found that people who consumed more than 5 grams of flaxseed per day had higher levels of uric acid, a compound in the blood that causes gout.

In a 2015 study, researchers found that flaxseed consumption was associated with a decreased risk of gout in people who were overweight.

Flaxseed and heart disease

In a 2017 study, researchers found that people who consumed more than 5 grams of flaxseed per day had higher levels of C-reactive protein (CRP), a marker of inflammation, in the blood.

In a 2014 study, researchers found that people who consumed more than 5 grams of flaxseed per day had higher levels of CRP in the blood.

Flaxseed and depression

In a 2015 study, researchers found that flaxseed consumption was associated with an increased risk of depression in people who were overweight.

Flaxseed and cancer

In a 2011 study, researchers found that flaxseed consumption was associated with an increased risk of breast cancer.

Flaxseed and Parkinson’s disease

In a 2018 study, researchers found that flaxseed consumption was associated with an increased risk of Parkinson’s disease.

Flaxseed and Alzheimer’s disease

In a 2018 study, researchers found that flaxseed consumption was associated with an increased risk of Alzheimer’s disease.

Flaxseed and skin cancer

In a 2016 study, researchers found that flaxseed consumption was associated with an increased risk of skin cancer.

Flaxseed and bone loss

In a 2016 study, researchers found that flaxseed consumption was associated with an increased risk of bone loss. The study concluded that flaxseed consumption was associated with an increased risk of bone loss in people who were overweight.

Flaxseed and weight gain

In a 2012 study, researchers found that flaxseed consumption was associated with weight gain.

Flaxseed and heartburn

In a 2014 study, researchers found that people who consumed 5 grams of flaxseed per day had less heartburn after eating.

Flaxseed and weight loss

In a 2010 study, researchers found that people who consumed 5 grams of flaxseed per day had a lower body weight.

Flaxseed and high cholesterol

In a 2012 study, researchers found that people who consumed flaxseed had a lower risk of high cholesterol.

Flaxseed and high blood pressure

In a 2013 study, researchers found that people who consumed 5 grams of flaxseed per day had lower blood pressure.

Flaxseed and blood sugar

In a 2014 study, researchers found that people who consumed more than 5 grams of flaxseed per day had higher blood sugar levels after eating.

In conclusion

Flaxseed consumption is associated with several health benefits, but the effect on the cardiovascular system is unclear.

In a 2014 review, researchers concluded that flaxseed consumption was associated with a lower risk of cardiovascular disease. However, they also found that flaxseed consumption was associated with a higher risk of cardiovascular disease.

A 2015 review concluded that flaxseed consumption is associated with a lower risk of cardiovascular disease. However, the review also found that flaxseed consumption was associated with a lower risk of cardiovascular disease.
