EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

“Since my cholesterol is high, I’ve been trying different things and have found that flaxseed does help lower my cholesterol. It’s so great to find foods that provide a heart-health benefit.” Cindy L. A Note from Dr. B.: Studies confirm that about 1 teaspoon of ground flaxseed per day is all most people need to keep triglyceride and cholesterol levels reduced. One serving of this delicious fruit bread delivers more than that. Flaxseed must be ground to have the most benefit. Using a coffee grinder does the trick.
