Omega 3's lower cholesterol and triglycerides. Excellent sources of omega-3s are salmon, mackerel, and tuna, rainbow trout and sardines. Anchovies too! Walnuts, Almonds, brazil nuts,pumpkin seeds and eggs also a good source
Sesame seeds and flax seed is also good.
I finally order some after reading a little here and there about the product. It has pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds,flax seeds, hemp seeds vanilla powder,all spice and cinnamon. It is wonderful and taste like pumpkin pie. Not heavy or sticky like peanut butter. The other items from the company were also very good. I have had a fun butter sample parties at my house since I order it.4
Grind pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sunflower seeds, chia seeds together and if not allergic to nuts, add walnuts, almonds to the seeds mix and grind to a powder, not too fine. I then use this super food powder as a topping on bagel/cream cheese, sprinkle it on salad, add to oatmeal/quinoa porridge, on toasted bread, add to a glass of milk with honey... These seeds have lots of minerals, proteins and good fats The good fat and the proteins helps to curb hunger while providing wonderful nutrients4
Needs a food processor to grind the seeds
