Flax hull lignans benefits
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 benefitsmay
include the prevention of the development of breast, prostate,
colon and 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 align
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.

Flax hull lignans health benefits
The flax seed used to produce these flax hulls are organicgrade
flax seeds and a mechanical process is used to mill the flax seed so
that there is no oil or seed material.
These flax hulls contain high levels of a botanical lignans
(between30-60 mg) called seciosolariresinol dyglucosdie (SDG) which is a
They are converted into mammalian lignans called enterodiol (ED)
andenterolactone (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 the flax hullsare
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 vitaminB12.
Flax hulls significantly boost the body's immune systemand
help stop excessive free radical activity.
Flax Hull Lignans 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 lignanshave
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!

Flax hull lignans and cancer
Flax seeds are by far the richest source of cancer-fighting plantlignans.
Concentrated flax hull lignans significant ability to prevent
cancer is recognized by the National Cancer Institute
In addition to having anti-cancer properties
flaxlignans also have anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungus
An early 1980s study found cancer patients have lower levels
oflignans than tumour-free controls.
Flax hull lignans and breast cancer
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.
Flax hull lignans and prostate cancer
A diet supplemented with flax hull lignansmay
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).
You can use a home prostate
testing kit to check your PSA Levels.
Flax hull lignans and menopause
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
Flax hull lignans and cholesterol
A study at U Saskatchewan shows 73% reduction of plaque build-up
in the arteries, and also a reduction
of total and LDL cholesterol.
Flax hull lignans and muscle damage
Reported by Physiotherapy Research in 1995, pre-treatment with
aLignan-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
.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.
The mayo clinic (USA)
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.
The Mayo Clinic http://www.mayoclinic.com/print/breast-cancer
The American cancer society
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.

Flax seed hull lignans ingredients
Each serving of fortified of flax hulls contains
between 150-300mg of lignans, and 2-3mg of
glucoraphanin that when chewed become sulforaphane.
