Organic flax seed hulls with lignans dietary health food and nutritional supplement.
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.
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.
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 concentrated flax 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

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
Research – flax seed hulls, *(Obermeyer W, et al (US Food and Drug Administration, centre for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition, Div. Contaminants Chem., Natural Products Branch), Meeting Of The Federation Of American Societies For Experimental Biology On Experimental Biology March/April, 1993, Faseb J (Fed Am Soc Exp Biol), A863, 1993
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
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.
Each serving of fortified of flax hulls contains between 150-300mg of lignans, and 2-3mg of glucoraphanin that when chewed become sulforaphane.
