Benefits of LSA

The most notable benefit of LSA is that it is nutrient dense. LSA contains omega-3 fats, calcium, zinc and magnesium. These are all hugely beneficial for different things.

On top of this, it is a source of healthy fats, protein and dietary fibre. These are all essential elements in a healthy diet.

Omega-3 fatty acids are often known as heart healthy fats because they can lower blood pressure and reduce your risk of heart attack.

There are many positives that come with omega-3 supplementation including a mood improvement in those with major depression.

Zinc reduces severity of cold symptoms, can improve insulin sensitivity and even help those with drug resistant depression. Since zinc is lost through sweat, it can be especially important for athletes or those partaking in regular exercise.

Magnesium is another essential mineral that many are often deficient in. Getting sufficient amounts of magnesium helps improve sleep quality and lower blood pressure. Additionally asthmatics can benefit from magnesium supplementation as studies have shown it can improve symptoms and reduce allergen-induced skin reactions.

Finally calcium is a nutrient typically found in dairy products and some vegetables. Low calcium intake is associated with weak bones and osteoporosis. As we age, our bodies require more calcium to ensure our skeletons stay strong. Those who do not consume dairy products are especially vulnerable to calcium deficiency. In addition to this, studies show that 500mg-1000mg of daily calcium supplementation can reduce symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (PMS).

The explanations above only briefly touch on the numerous vitamins and minerals found in LSA. Our blend also contains iron, manganese, selenium, niacin, vitamin E and other nutrients our bodies require. Adding LSA to your meals is an inexpensive way to boost the number of minerals in our meals and can help prevent deficiencies.

It may be especially beneficial for those who tend to consume a lot of processed foods or don’t get enough dairy and fish.
