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 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 an-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 concentratedflax hull lignans our cheapest flax hull supplement. Compare these two products by looking at the ingredients list.
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 phytonutrient.
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 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 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!
The flax hulls are certified organic by U.S.A. Organics (Cert. # US-ND-P0012) & Global OrganicAlliance, Inc. (Cert. # 4276) both of USA
The flax hulls are certified Kosher and Pareve byVAAD HA'IR of WINNIPEG, Inc. of Canada
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 properties.
An early 1980s study found cancer patients have lower levels oflignans 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 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.
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 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 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 serving of fortified of flax hulls contains between 150-300mg of lignans, and 2-3mg of glucoraphanin that when chewed become sulforaphane.
These are the highest levels of any botanical source and are highly beneficial phytonutrients recommended by the FDA and the Mayo clinic and American Cancer Society.
