Flaxseed helps stave off hunger and can prove useful at keeping you from munching on snacks the entire day which can lead to weight gain quite fast. According to a study, adding a mere 25 grams of ground flaxseed to a beverage can suppress the feeling of hunger and overall food intake.
The reduced feeling of hunger is a result of the soluble fiber content of flaxseeds. The fiber slows digestion and stimulates hormones that control appetite, thereby providing a feeling of fullness.
