LSA Recipe

LSA, or Linseeds (also known as flaxseeds), Sunflower Seeds and Almonds, provides good fats including omega 3 fatty acids, the nutrients iron, calcium, magnesium, vitamin E, folate and are high in protein, all of which benefits fertility.

It is important to make your LSA fresh, as the oils contained within the nuts and seeds oxidize easily once they have been crushed. This is particularly the case for linseeds, which should only be consumed freshly crushed or as a cold pressed oil which is kept in the refrigerator.

Avoid buying pre-ground LSA, as this contains a high amount of oxidized oils which are rancid and therefore detrimental to your health. You can make LSA using the following recipe:

Use equal parts of:

  • Linseeds
  • Sunflower Seeds
  • Almonds

In a mortar and pestle or coffee grinder, grind equal amounts of the above. If you do not have time to grind your LSA as you need it, you can make it in bigger batches and keep in in an airtight jar in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.

A useful variation to LSA is LSAP, which you also add equal amounts of pepitas (pumpkin seeds). This has the added benefit of zinc, which is great for hair, skin and nail health, immune function and reproductive health.
