~in Their Own Words!!

I am 86 years old. I was considering knee replacement surgery and was having a lot of joint pain in my knees, ankles, and arms. 2 months ago I started using flaxseed and flax lignans along with going to a chiropractor and I am convinced flax has greatly diminished my pain + I no longer need to have knee replacement surgery. I have also had less throat phlegm and mucous.
Sincerely, Paul K.

I suffer from Migraine Headaches and the Flax Hull Lignans have helped relieve the pain + inflammation from the migraines.

The quality and taste of your flax was FAR BETTER than the flax I found at both Costco + Sam's Club. I also noticed more benefits with your flax. So, a couple dollars more for Much Better Flax is definitely worth it to me. I'm glad to know that I am supporting local farmers + to know my flax isn't coming from unregulated countries like China + other countries.
Thanks, Dave S.
Flax has been a huge help to my sinus problem! If I take it at night, I have significantly less congestion + I breathe easier too. Overall, I feel better when I'm consistent in taking at least ΒΌ cup each day.
Thanks again!~Sue E. St Cloud, MN
I have been very pleased with the results I have had since taking the Flax Hull Lignans + the Flakes o Gold. I am sleeping so much better at night. I'm not experiencing the night sweats, the anxiety feelings that I had been having. I truly know that I feel better since I started taking your products. My husband takes it as well. I'm anxious to get the results from his blood work. We are definitely sold on the flax.
Thanks! Monica S, IN
Normal Cholesterol + Improved Eczema!
I purchased flax seed after meeting Ellie's Daughter. She described all the benefits that she experienced from taking it + I thought, "why not give it a try". The main reason I bought it was it could curb your appetite, who wouldn't want that! Little did I know there were other health issues I had that the flax seeds would help me overcome.
I've had high cholesterol levels for over 3 years. I was taking the flax seeds daily for ~8 months when I had my annual doctor appt. My Dr informed me that if my cholesterol levels were as high as they had been for the past 3 yrs she would strongly recommend as she had at previous visits that I start taking a prescription to lower it.
My LDL (Bad Cholesterol) had been at 181 (high, bordering on very high) + total cholesterol level had been 243 (High Risk) for the past 3 yrs. When the results came back my Cholesterol levels had dropped down to normal! 128 LDL + 205 Total! ...
In addition to lowering my cholesterol the flax seed has also significantly improved my eczema. Since my son was born 11 yrs ago I have had problems with eczema. It was so bad that I would itch until I bled. It would travel across my body, showing up on my legs, arms + stomach in large patches. Since I started taking flax, my eczema has cleared up to the point where I only see an occasional small bump on my arm or leg that itches slightly but goes away quickly.
I would recommend taking flax seeds to everyone...you may be surprised by benefits you will receive!

Relief from ENDOMETRIOSIS Symptoms
I have been using the flax and the flax lignans for approximately 6 months. Prior to this it was suspected that I might have endometriosis as evidenced by severe abdominal pain for 2-3 weeks prior to my cycle, very heavy cycles, and mood swings. With the use of the lignans and flax, all of the symptoms have greatly diminished. In addition to this, my energy levels are improved. These products have been very beneficial for my overall health.

Benefits of Flax for ATHELETES + KIDS
Thank you very much for the Flakes O' Gold. We have been customers since Grandma's Marathon in 2007. Flax seed is great for runners and even better for our kids (ages 5 and 2).
Thank you very much! ~Mike S.
Wonderful Flax + Lignans!!!
I discovered this wonderful product at the farm machinery show in Louisville, Ky last weekend, and boy am I glad I found it!! I have never had so much natural energy. I'm the type of person that caffeine affects me the opposite way, I get very tired if I consume too much. I'm a fitness junkie + this has helped really jumpstart my workouts. I can go longer + I workout much harder as well.
Also, my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer a few years ago (she is cancer free now!) and it feels good to know that the flax seed lignans will help prevent this type of cancer. Her cancer was caused by her HRT that her doctor placed her on years back. It was a estrogen induced cancer. Cancer and heart problems run in both sides of my family, this is another reason why Flax got my attention.
~Lyndsey G. ~27 years old
Here are the results I have had in only a few months. I am 52 y/o + have several health problems: Type 2 Diabetes, Menopause + Constipation being my top 3 complaints. When I was introduced to Golden Flax, I was drinking fiber every day + still had to live on Senna. I no longer have to buy Senna or fiber.
The other thing that was so huge for me is, when I started the Lignans, my hot flashes were so bad 3 or 4 times in the night. My sleep was interrupted, not to mention the embarrassment of breaking out in a sweat. My face would turn beet red in the middle of a conversation with maybe a stranger and you're wondering what that person is thinking. Oh boy, I have not had a hot flash for about 3 weeks. I have been sleeping all night and no longer worry about the embarrassment of those HOT FLASHES!
The best thing that happened is that it has really helped stabilize my blood sugar. When blood sugar is stable without a lot of peaks + valleys, it's easier to lose weight + I'm game for that. Some other things I have noticed are that my skin is softer on my hands, I usually have cracks that bleed on my hands, boy that is rough, when you need lemon juice for a recipe.
Thanks, Sherrie
My Story: Breast Cancer, Flax and Flax Hull Lignans
My name is Mary E. I was diagnosed with Stage II Breast Cancer in April 2005. I have had 3 surgeries, 6 months of Chemotherapy + 3 months of daily Radiation Therapy. My Oncologist assures me that I'm now cancer free, although I must take Tamoxifen every day. The Tamoxifen has caused me to have multiple hot flashes each hr of each day. I think I was experiencing up to 100 hot flashes/day before I found Flax Lignans...
Flax Hull Lignans have been found to reduce hot flashes and the combination of taking Flax and Flax Hull Lignans has reduced the occurrence and reoccurrence of Breast Cancer.
My hot flashes have completely disappeared. I'm not suffering from any hot flashes now.... Although there is an expense to taking both of these nutritional supplements, that expense is nothing in comparison to the expense of monthly co-pays for Chemotherapy and Radiation treatments in the hundreds of dollars....
I feel so good about giving my body something good every day. I will continue taking Flax and Flax Hull Lignans for the rest of my life, and thanks to the elimination of hot flashes, my quality of life has improved dramatically....
~Mary E.

I've been using the Flakes O' Gold for 6 mos and can feel a difference. I have had mild depression + it has helped with that.
-Sincerely, C.C.
Thank you for selling my family Flax and the Flax Hull Lignans. We all are benefiting from them. I am pregnant. I have had a very tough time with this pregnancy up until I tried your product. I was very ill all the time + I was eating small snacks every hour. Once I tried the flax, I have felt like myself again + I can eat like normal again. Thank you so much for introducing me to the flax + the flax hull lignans.
Sincerely, Michelle H.
P.S. My husband and my 3 yr old son really like the flax also!

Since I've been using the flax + flax hall lignans, I notice I have less pain. I have fibromyalgia + I would have really bad pain on a daily basis. I also notice I have more energy.
~Brenda S. MN

I've been using flax faithfully for 2 years now and have not had the aching joints, especially in my hands, like I use to. Your product is wonderful and I have been telling my family, friends and co-workers what a difference a little flax in your diet can make. I am looking forward to receiving emails from your website.
~Julie M. MN

I am 47 years old + have taken golden flax seed for the past two months along with lingnans. I was experiencing extreme hot flashes + I don't have them anymore thanks to the lingnans that I take daily.
As I said started taking flax seed at the same time as the lignans. I go to the gym to work out. Since I started on the flax seed I can lift from 10 to 30 pound more on the machines and I don't get as tired or sore as I used to after lifting weights and doing cardio. It is amazing when I go to the gym I feel great and not fatigued.
Taking golden flax seed and lignans has also helped me mentally to focus and I feel balanced. The lignans have helped the hot flashes and have balanced my hormones. I don't feel as emotional during this time of experiencing menopause. I don't feel like I am experiencing menopause. I am pre-menopausal and started having hot flashes about 1 year ago and they are gone now. They went away within a day of starting the lignans. I am grateful that I met Ellie and these natural products have changed my life.

Relief from Period Migraines!
I have suffered from period migraines for the past 20 years. I have tried everything from holistic products to over the counter migraine products. Nothing seemed to help.
I got my doctor involved after trying everything and all that seemed to help was prescription migraine medication. One of the side effects from these prescription medications was nausea, which is definitely not fun, but with out prescription medications, my life comes to a stand still. I have to take time off from work and whatever social plans I have made for those couple of days, have to be put on hold if my medication doesn't work (not to mention the expense of these medications that are definitely not cheap.)
My boyfriend and I were at the Farmers Market a week ago, and we were lucky and fortunate to have met Ellie. I explained my situation with my migraines and she suggested trying the Flax Hull Lignans. It just so happened that I had migraine symptoms when I met Ellie. I figured that now was the best time to try the Flax Hull Lignans that I purchased.
I can honestly say that I am a true believer of Ellie's advice. Flax Hull Lignans totally saved me from a week of suffering.We were at the Mill City Museum Farmers Market this morning and even though I am not out of this miracle product, I decided to purchase a back up that I can take to work, and my upcoming vacation.
~Rhonda D.

I came across Flakes o' Gold Flax seed at the Mill City Farmers Market in Minneapolis last summer. I started taking it in hopes that it would relieve me from my constant hot flashes. I have tried several things, including hormones, which I just won't take anymore. After about a week I could not believe how much better they were. After several weeks I started to feel like my old self again, (somebody that I hadn't seen in awhile). I thought it was just me, but my husband said he couldn't believe how much my mood had changed. I still get a few hot flashes, but nothing like they were. I will be taking this product for as long as I can buy it. Thank you Ellie for taking the time to explain your product, and for sending it to me with in a day after I call for more.
Sincerely, Ginger S., MN

I am amazed at how much better I am feeling by adding this Flax to my diet. It has totally wiped out all my hot flashes. The lignans were doing a pretty good job, but since I have been also taking the flaxseed they have disappeared. My mind seems clearer, I feel better and my trouble sleeping at night has improved immensely.
Thank you again for blessing me. ~Liz B.

"Even at the full price the Cold Milled Flax is still cheaper than Metamucil or other fiber supplements that run about $12 for only 15 ounces! That's a great deal!"

"Ellie, Thanks for your email. Just a short testament: Have been trying for years to get my cholesterol numbers to be on the healthy side. Got your flax at the farmers market this past summer and took your advice on consuming it. Had a blood test 2 weeks ago and my Cholesterol number is at 181, down from 262. Healthy eating and exercise: definitely the way to go. Thanks again."
