In one recent study, adding 3 tablespoons of ground flax to their daily diet eased
breast soreness for one in three women within 12 weeks. Scientists credit flax’s
phytoestrogens, natural plant compounds that prevent the estrogen spikes that
can trigger breast pain. More good news: You don’t have to be a master baker to
sneak this healthy seed into your diet. Just sprinkle ground flax on oatmeal,
yogurt, applesauce or add it to smoothies and veggie dips.
