Metabolic Syndrome is a significant health problem that is currently on the rise. It is associated with an increased risk of type 2 diabetes, as well as a number of other health conditions. In addition to lifestyle modifications and pharmaceuticals, supplementation with omega 3-fatty acids has shown promise to help with glycemic control. This review looks at the effects of flaxseed supplementation on glycemic control in adults with or at risk for metabolic syndrome.
