Take organic flax seed hulls with lignans dietary health food and nutritional supplement.
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 cancers.
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 lignan-rich diet.
Flax seed lignans have anti-tumour, anti-mittic, antioxidant and weak estrogenic activity.
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.
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 probiotic capsules.
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!
The flax hulls are certified organic by U.S.A. Organics (Cert. # US-ND-P0012) & Global Organic Alliance, Inc. (Cert. # 4276) both of USA.
The flax hulls are certified Kosher and Pareve by VAAD HA'IR of WINNIPEG, Inc. of Canada.
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 colon cancer.
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.

Protect against or support treatment to prostate cancer, a Swedish study found decreased PSA after just 6 months.
Men with prostrate issues may experience benefits as a study suggests favourable effect on prostate cancer biology - Study Denmark-Wahnefried (2001).
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 arteries, and also a reduction of total and LDL cholesterol.

Reported by Physiotherapy Research in 1995, pre-treatment with a Lignan-enriched extract was protective against physical exercise-induced muscle damage.
Another Study shows the positive effects on bone mineral density and to protect against calcium loss.

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.The American Cancer Society. www.cancer.org/docroot/ETO/content/ETO_5_3X_Flaxseed.asp
Each gram of flax hulls contains between 30-60mg of secoisolariciresinol diglucoside (SDG) the highest level found in any botanical source. It provides the daily requirement of Cobalamin (Vitamin B12) and very nutritious dietary fibre (soluble and insoluble)
|Nutritional value per serving|
|Total fat (as triglycerides)||8.2%|
Does Not Contain...
Each serving (5 gm) of flax hulls contain between 40 - 60 mg of SDG, highest botanical source.
Recommended dosage - 2 x 5ml scoops a day.
Taking probiotic supplements with fortified flax hulls works to boost the immune system of the body.
This health supplement is also an excellent source of (soluble and insoluble) high quality dietary fibre and also provides the daily requirement of Cobalamin (Vitamin B12)
It is recommended that flax hulls are taken in conjunction with LB17 live probiotic capsules as they provide good bacteria that will convert the botanical to mammalian lignans for better absorption by the body for maximum benefit.
