Abstract

The presence of polyunsaturated fatty acids, dietary fibers, lignans, proteins, and minerals in flaxseed is the basis of its nutraceutical properties. Flaxseed is now being considered as a good dietary supplement for improved human health. The numerous health benefits of flaxseed include preventive roles against cardiovascular diseases, cancer, diabetes, and brain disorders. This review focuses mainly in discussing the studies performed until now regarding the beneficial effects of flaxseed in brain health.
