Flaxseed Fiber Can Help in Obesity Treatment
A new study, performed by a team of researchers from the University of Copenhagen, Denmark, and the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, suggests that flaxseed fiber can influence the gastrointestinal microbiota and help in obesity treatment.
For the study, the researchers used mice which were split into four groups and were fed a different diet. The first group received a standard diet with 4.6% soy-derived fiber (control diet), the second group got a high-fat diet without any fiber, the third group was assigned a high-fat diet with 10% indigestible cellulose fiber, and the fourth group consumed a high-fat diet with 10% flaxseed fiber.
Having analyzed the received results, the scientists concluded that mice from the flaxseed diet group were more physically active and showed less weight gain than mice with other diets
