Flax Hulls - Lignans Supplement
Take organic flax seed hulls with lignans dietary health food and
Flax hulls lignans are also nutritious source of fibre containing both
soluble and insoluble fibres and Vitamin B12 in the form of Cobalamin.
Numerous studies suggest flax hull lignans health benefits may include
the prevention of the development of breast, prostate, colon & other
Flax seed hulls (with lignans) are the natural ground flax hulls
(organic shell only) of the flaxseed without any seed materials or oil.
Mounting scientific evidence shows how important it is to consume a
Flax seed lignans have anti-tumour, anti-mittic, antioxidant and weak
The shell of the flaxseed is known and proven to contain very high
levels of botanical lignans especially SDG.
Friendly bacteria convert the flaxseed hulls with lignans in to
mammalian lignans so that the body can absorb better.
Also Available fortified flax
hull lignans plus 3-day old broccoli sprouts, lignans
contain high levels of botanical lignans (SDG) and Glucoraphanin.
Glucoraphanin is converted into sulforaphane by chewing of the broccoli
sprouts. Sulforaphane is also a powerful antioxidant that as been shown
to be effective in the treatment of cancers.
Health Benefits of Flax Hulls Lignans
The flax seed used to produce this product are organic grade flax seeds
and a mechanical process is used to mill the flax seed so that there is
no oil or seed material.
Contain high levels of a botanical lignan (between 30-60 mg) called
secoisolariciresinol diglucoside (SDG) which is a phytonutrient.
They are converted into mammalian lignans called enterodiol (ED) and
enterolactone (EL) in the bowel by friendly bacteria before the body can
absorb the lignans efficiently.
This is one of the reasons why we recommend that this product is best
used with live
At the same time the flax hulls are excellent nutritious dietary fibres
delivering both soluble and insoluble fibres.
Flax hulls contain Cobalamin which is a form of Vitamin B12, boost the
body's immune system and help stop excessive free radical activity and
are more potent as an antioxidant than the darkest leafy green vegetable!
Kale is a vegetable that has one of the highest ORAC values (the
measurement of antioxidant).
Kale's ORAC value is 1770, while concentrated flax hull lignans have an
ORAC value of 19,600!
Prunes are the fruit with the highest ORAC value at 6,770, which still
doesn't come close to flax hull lignans!
Provide the Recommended Daily Value (RDA) of Vitamin B12 in the form
Provide excellent nutritious dietary fibre (both soluble and insoluble)
The flax hulls are certified organic by U.S.A. Organics
(Cert. # US-ND-P0012) & Global Organic Alliance, Inc. (Cert. # 4276)

The flax hulls are certified Kosher and Pareve by VAAD

Flax seeds are by far the richest source of cancer-fighting plant lignan.
Concentrated flax hull lignans significant ability to prevent cancer is
recognized by the National Cancer Institute .
In addition to having anti-cancer properties flax lignans also have
anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungus properties.
An early 1980s study found cancer patients have lower levels of lignans
than tumour-free controls.
Flax hull lignans are potentially the richest source of phytoestrogens
in the human diet and may be linked to a low incidence of breast and
Flax hull lignans help protect against and support treatment for breast
cancer, an Australian study (Lancet, 1997) suggested.
Substantial reduction in breast cancer risk among women with high intake
of phytoestrogens, particularly lignans.
Consumption of foods high in lignans may help protect women from
developing breast cancer.
A diet supplemented with flax hull lignans may inhibit the growth and
development of prostate cancer.

Concentrated flax hull lignans are the best natural substitute for
oestrogens for both men and women.
ED and EL mimic oestrogens in the body and are better than HRT for
eliminating menopause symptoms such as hot flushes.
A study at U Saskatchewan shows 73% reduction of plaque build-up in the

Fortified Flax Hulls are essentially flax hulls (lignans) as described
above fortified with 3-day old broccoli sprouts. Broccoli
sprouts have been studied by Prof. Dr. Paul Talalay of John Hopkins
University (MD, USA) and found to contain high levels of glucoraphanin.
Glucoraphanin when chewed releases a powerful antioxidant called Sulforaphane.
.Prof. Dr. Paul Talalay studied and found that Sulforaphane are highly
effective in the treatment of cancers in rats. Other studies have found
that 3-day broccoli sprouts contain the highest level of Glucoraphanin
and the reason that they are chosen to fortify the flax hulls. These
3-day old broccoli sprouts are grown organically from specially chosen
organic seeds. After harvesting, the sprouts are freeze-dried to
preserve its properties.
Phytoestrogens are naturally occurring compounds that lower circulating
estrogens in your body. Flaxseed is particularly high in one
phytoestrogen, lignans, which appears to decrease estrogens production
and which may inhibit the growth of some breast cancers.

One study of 25 men with prostate cancer found that a low-fat diet along
with ground flaxseed reduced serum testosterone, slowed the growth rate
of cancer cells, and increased the death rate of cancer cells.
