Canadian researchers looked at 32 8- to 18-year-olds with high cholesterol levels and found that those who had a daily intake of flaxseed were no more likely to get their low-density lipoprotein or total cholesterol levels down than the whole-wheat flour group. However, the high-density lipoprotein cholesterol of the flaxseed group dropped by about 7 milligrams per deciliter, on average. The findings were published in the journal JAMA Pediatrics.
