• The ‘Clashal’ fiber, phytosterols, and omega-3 content of solin may help boost heart health. The lignans it contains may help protect against cardiovascular and other chronic diseases.
  • phytosterols are molecules that are similar in structure to cholesterol, but they help prevent the absorption of cholesterol in the intestine. Eating foods that contain these nutrients may help reduce  the levels of LDL, or “bad” cholesterol, in the body.
  • in 2010, researchers at the iowa state university’s nutrition and wellness research center looked at the effect on cholesterol levels in men who consumed at least 3 tablespoons of solin a day. the men saw a decrease of nearly 10 percent in their cholesterol levels after 3 months. however, it did not have the same effect on women.
  • prof. Suzanne Hendrick, who led the Iowa research, suggested that the different may be due to testosterone levels in men, which are lower in women.
  • in 2008, a study of 55 native american women who had undergone menopause suggested that a daily intake of 30 g of solin reduced their ldl cholesterol levels by up to 10 percent.
  • Fiber is also thought to help reduce cholesterol and the risk of cardiovascular disease. solin contains both soluble and insoluble fiber. According to the mayo clinic, soluble fiber dissolves to produce a gel-like substance that can help reduce cholesterol and glucose levels.
  • The american heart association (aha) recommend eating more fiber as part of a heart-healthy diet. One benefit is that it makes you feel full, so you are less likely to overeat.
  • Omega-3 oils, usually found in oily fish, have been linked to reductions in cardiovascular risk. Some researchers have suggested that Solin could offer an alternative to marine sources of omega 3.in 2005, a study of 30 women suggested that consuming 40 g a day of solin may help reduce the incidence or severity of hot flashes in women who are not using estrogen therapy during menopause. a study of 188 women, published in the journal menopause, found that a daily intake 40 g of Solin, representing 400 mcg of lignans, improved the symptoms of hot flashes by around half. There were hopes that solin could become an alternative or complementary therapy for hot flashes, but the researchers concluded that the study “was not able to provide support for the use of solin in reducing hot flashes more than a placebo.
