With SO MANY BENEFITS of SUCH a small seed hull, it is clear to see why ~LIGNANS~ are a POWERFUL SUPERFOOD!
The Science behind -Lignans- (abbreviated LGN for this section):
They are a group of phytonutrients, which means plant nutrients, and they are found in veggies, grains, and seeds. Flaxseed is the richest source of phytonutrients containing 800micrograms of LGN per gram versus other sources like soy, millet, and rye with 2-6mcg/g.
Flaxseed LGN was discovered in 1956 and scientific research interest came in the 1980s when a connection was shown between a low level of LGN in a person who had breast cancer.
Secoisolariciresinol diglucoside (SDG) is a powerful antioxidant belonging to a class of phytonutrients called ~lignans~. Flax seed is the richest source of SDG.
Flax hulls are the outside of a flax seed, so when you eat ground flax seed, you will get some ~lignans~. If you are battling any significant health problems (esp those listed above), we recommend complementing your diet with additional concentrated-lignans along with the Golden flaxseed.
Because the body is trying to heal itself, and by giving it a super food antioxidant as powerful as lignans-, the body can do more for us! I have had many of my customers tell me impressive stories about how their bodies have been able to heal just by eating right and adding ~lignans~!!
"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!" -K.A.
"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."

"I have several health problems: Type 2 Diabetes + Constipation being my top complaints. When I was introduced to Golden Flax seed, I was drinking fiber daily + lived on Senna. I no longer have to buy Senna or fiber."
"My hot flashes were so bad and I had up to 3 or 4 times in the night. My sleep was interrupted, not to mention the embarrassment of breaking out in a sweat and a red face during conversations.... Oh boy, I have not had a hot flash for about 3 weeks."
"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."
-- Thanks, Sherrie
